i am so proud of this one. because it took me literally HOURS and also because the person i gave it to (my aunt) absolutely loves it Grin. it's made entirely from old fleece garments with some seed beads in the centres of the flowers.
do you like it?

I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference.

wow, thanks guys! that makes me feel great. and i love that it's made from reclaimed fabric too, i always like it when i can do that. cuts down on material costs too! i have loads of old fleece that no one was Ever going to wear again. mostly i make it into little monsters but this teacosy for my auntie was special Smiley (like 14 hours special, i can't even express how happy i am that she likes it after all that work, whew!).

If I am making a complicated, detailed project like this for someone in my family who appreciates the work, I don't mind the hours and hours of labor.  I think about them with every stitch!
