Stitch 'N' Bitch

For anyone local who would like to join or anyone who fancies donating some scraps/ribbon/buttons etc please let me know at posyillustrations@hotmail.co.uk.

Stitch 'N' Bitch will be a cosy group of crafty savvy people who want to stitch have a chin wag and learn new tricks, or teach others new tricks. Its all about sharing, sharing knowledge and ideas as well as materialistic items. I am a massive fan of up cycling things and often have stashes of old dresses or tea towels that need a new life. Often i have bits for months that I do not use, this is an opportunity to get yourself some new ideas perhaps some new fabric and get rid of that awful floral fabric you bought 3 years ago and have never used!

On that note we have some news to announce, come June 2013 We will be stitch, bitch and babysit as our first baby is due. <3 p="">

Here is a sample starter pack I have done for a newbie to this magical world.

Lavender pin cushion...



So it occurred to me whilst sewing lavender hearts at Christmas that I had zillions of dried lavender and i needed a pin cushion, already sewing hearts I stuck with the same theme. its rather lumpy as it has no stuffing in it but I quite like it quirkiness. Anyway it smells nice if nothing else!
