A great idea that gets to use some of those lovely stitches your machine will do (but you could do hand embroidery too!)
Jennie shows us how to make this useful little project from a couple of pieces of felt; she suggests using your sewing machine to create a design on the top,and this could be a great opportunity for you to try out some of those stitches you have always wondered about and/or threads.
But this could just as easily be worked by hand with simple embroidery stitches – and therefore one for the younger generation too – maybe chain stitch and running stitch.
Valerie still has one she made as a child with chain stitch as the decoration and was much cherished by her mother.
Also a great fundraising idea as it is quick and easy!
