As I have previously said I was unduly tempted into buying a needle felt kit from my local guilty pleasures shop, Craft Days following an episode of Kirstie's Handmade Britain. Unfortunately it has since been stashed away in my craft cupboard till I could find some inspiration on what to do with it.
Luckily my wish was answered this month when my new issue of Mollie Makes arrived and on the front was a some cute little dogs made by Gretel Parker. Of course when Mimi saw them I couldn't resist creating these little fellows for her.
Please meet Buttercup with his jaunty orange scarf and squiggly ball.......
and Peppermint with his petite beret and his very own ball (we don't want any arguing!!)
Mimi loves them so and of course has many other plans of family and friends for these little peeps, so keep a look out. Thinking they may make cute key rings too, any other ideas?
