Pass the Chocolates

I'm sure I've shown you these felt chocolates before... (totally calorie free!)
Well, today we thought they would be a good project for our Young Embroiderers.


Now, I know my girls are good but never for a moment did I think they would do such a brilliant job...


I gave a couple of quick demos and they were away... coming up with their own designs, their own colour schemes and their own decorations to create their very own unique box of chocolates.
I think I should point out that the oldest of these girls are only 11 - 12 and we have some as young as 8.


Every single one was just amazing.


Well done girls... I can't wait to see what you achieve at our next meeting.


It's been a lovely day... thank you!

  1. They are brilliant! We've only just nailed the Girl into bed, so I'll show her tomorrow - I'm sure she'd like to make some too! Are they mostly made from felt?
