I don't wish to become tooooo painful about pinterest but I shall ask at the start if these photos are not posted there - my photos continue to be posted just after I have sent them here. I might as well just miss out the blog bit and post to pinterest with no text at this rate!!
Anyway I have been meaning to make one of these for the children's lunch money for some time - so the other day was that day - only took about 10 minutes while listening to the radio.
Best to stop part way and have a nice cup of tea...with biscuit...Just to mention that Dom made me this cuppa and chose a 'nice' cup because at the time I was a bit cheesed off for some reason. Dom would rather have a plain white cup so I knew that he had made an effort here.
Then continue with your sewing - just using little hand stitches
Zip it together even though you have not finished sewing it - too keen to see it finished!
Then slurp some more tea in order to reveal this nice picture inside the cup!
Then finish off!
I spent a good hour zipping and unzipping just because - ma-jeeco (phonetic spelling of strange words we use in our house)!
I used the free tutorial here to make this: http://www.craftpassion.com/2011/07/zip-itself-coin-purse-tutorial.html
Now that I have got the hang of it I am going to make some more..
