Happy Flowers.....

..... last year we had a pincushion stitch-a-bit and I received this lovely top:


... and do you remember the lovely wallhanging Toni made for me?

Here it is hanging up in the bathroom .... I keep some nice scented soap in the pocket....


well... there is too many pretty things to look at on the felt top so I decided not to do a pincushion.....

but use Toni's idea for another flower


now I have one for the other little room where one has time to sit and look at details ... 


 I have added some scented soap too .....

(made with felted blanket and old denim jeans {which had shrunk!})

Love the pieces and the pocket in a bathroom is a great idea. I have a few that I collected when I cut up jeans, never waste good fabric;)

Lovely Fiona. I thought they were much to pretty to sticks pins in.

Cute! Your jeans shrink too? Must be because they spend so much of their life inside a dark cupboard.....it's the lack of light that does it, you know.......
