I have managed to sneak in an OPAM make for January and had fun making this cute Russian Doll felt softie.
I found this small kit when I took Sophie to Hobbycraft in Truro last weekend. I bought a small bird version for a student at work who volunteered to help out at Options Evening last week. As a Textiles Art student I thought a making gift would be a good idea.
There were 25 pieces in this kit and the only bit that I did not like were the blue Hamar beads so I changed them to some blue seed beads that I had.
She went together very well and was the ideal activity to do whilst watching "Call the Midwife" on BBC 1. The kit overall was good value for £2.99. She is meant to hang up but I could not think where to put her. Would using her as a pincushion be alright do you think?
I have another felty item cut out but I think that will have to wait until February.
