This gorgeous little make was all made with free little bits and pieces that came with compliments.
The patchwork flower pieces were stapled to an invoice from Lina Patchwork. It was really small. The liberty fabric swatches (about 8cm square) came with compliments from Alice Caroline when I ordered half a metre of Liberty to make my twin set. I wondered what I was going to do with them and now here they are meeting up with someone else's kindness.
I used my glue pen to cover the paper pieces and then had a happy half an hour doing teeny weeny stitches to join it all together. I popped in two bits of Liberty from which I have made clothes to make the full flower.
Finally, the hoop was a free gift on a magazine which my Aunt did not want so she gave it to me. All totally free and fun. It is joining my ever growing gallery of hoops at the cabin.
How small do your scraps have to be before you throw them away?
