The flowers are cut out of tea shirts, sewn together inside out leaving an opening in one of the petals, then turned the right way and finished off with very small hand stitches. Red beads for the centres.
I put two rows of stitching along the top edge to make the handles more secure.
I think I may have solved the cat food pouch problem. The pouches are too thick, that's why the bags are so difficult to make. I think I can take the back off them without damaging the whole pouch. Should make it easier to get it under the foot of the machine. I'll give it a whirl when I get back next week.
I picked Henry choc lab up this afternoon to bring back here. My friend Helen has a pond and it has loads of frogs in it, doing what frogs do at this time of the year. There are great lumps of frog spawn along the edge. It will be interesting to watch their progress. If they all hatch out into tadpoles then frogs, there will be hundreds of them.
