Every new year my thoughts turn to how to reduce lots of things: my weight, my spending, my mess and waste. So this week’s craft helps with at least two of those.
Remember Mr.Rabbit? Well I had quite a bit of wool left over from making him so in the spirit of spending less and recycling I thought I’d use some of it this week. And I’ve written a little tutorial for you so you can make one too.
1 ) Cut out six circles from your felted wool (or whatever fabric you have to hand). I used a teacup as the template.
2 ) Thread a needle with a piece of strong white thread and tie a knot in the end.
3 ) Fold one of the circles in half and half again.
7 ) Keep going until you’ve sewn together all six.
8 ) Secure it all with a few stitches until you’re happy with how it looks.
9 ) Attach a brooch bar or safety pin on to the back and you’re all done.
Hope 2011 is going well for you so far – happy crafting!
