I have been making lots of Scottie dog brooches, a few more than in this photo, for little Christmas gifts. The one on the bottom left is a bit more of a pup as it is for my Grand daughter and the one, second down on the right, is specially made for the best friend of my sis-in-law who died a couple of years ago. It is made from a piece of her clothing so I thought it would mean more to her and she is a soppy date like me so its a way of feeling close to my sis-in-law as we still miss her so much.
I have also been making these little boxes to put them in, with a bit of help from my son as I couldn't remember how to make them. I am using the lovely vintage wallpaper I picked up for a pound a while ago and have used for various projects and some washi tape and a bit of Christmas tissue paper.
I hope people like their little homemade gift as it hasn't cost a lot but is made with love.I have made a few other brooches too, some of them have gone onto the bags I have been making which are all nearly completed now.
and this ones for me to wear
I now have some knitting on the go for another present as I saw on a blog that I follow, Eclectic Home and Life, her instructions for felted slippers. I managed to buy some 100 per cent Scottish wool and have a go.
I have only made one foot so far! This is before the felting part too so watch this space!
