Buttons Boutique Workshops for Pins & Needles 2013

I will be back up at Newcastle Racecourse on the 15th and 16th February 2013 to do two different workshops this year. Workshop One at 1.15pm will be a Mushroom Pin Cushion made from felt at 10cm tall which will be hand embroidered to decorate. Workshop Two at 2.30pm will be a Rabbit pin cushion which will have patterned fabric patches on his tummy and ears and stands 14cm tall to top of the ears.

Workshops can be booked now over here Pins + Needles Workshops and can be booked at event if any tickets are remaining. Approx 20 spaces on each workshop are available.

Workshops at Pins & Needles 2012

I was invited to carry out workshops again at the Pins & Needles craft show which was held up at Newcastle Race Course this year.

I decided this year I was going to hold a Russian Doll Pin Cushion workshop, so here are the photos and some of the finished dollies.

My own Summertime handmade swap item…

Well here are pictures of my handmade swap item I made for my partner who was @dotsandspots on twitter.

I absolutely love sunflowers and they seem to be happy bright items and people normally love them in summer so I made a sunflower pin cushion and also a spotty lumpy bear as I heard they loved spots!

I hope Lumpy Bear is loving their new home…

My Tweet SwapBot swap arrived!

Well what a surprise I got when my little Birdie Tweet Swap from ejorpin on twitter showed up with the postman the other day. I eagerly opened the parcel to find…

Tweet Birdie

A pink birdie pin cushion and a matching birdie purse!

Birdie is very friendly and he soon made a new friend and his friend looks just like him but is yellow and furry!

Birdie will hopefully love living in England now :)
