a pair of foxy brooches


Last night I whipped up this pair of cute fox brooches




The free kit came with Issue 32 of Mollie Makes.
These will be gifts for teachers.

Charm About You


Oh and I was in the city centre this afternoon so, of course, I popped into Abakhan - I had no spare cash to buy anything but in the quilting fabric section I spotted this gorgeous Tula Pink fabric for £5.75 a metre!



There's lots of other gorgeous fabrics and I have my eye on some cute Russian doll cotton. If you're near to Manchester I suggest you head to Abakhan and grab some fabric!

and finish it up friday at Crazy Mom Quilts

  1. Sweet brooches, love the fabric too! We had an Abakhan store at the end of our road in Riga, it was always worth rummaging in the fabric bins to come up with some gems :)

  5. I love the foxes and wish the pattern was available. Have to say I haven't see free kits in the magazines. I might be missing the whole concept and need to look closer! Thanks for sharing this one...cute, cute, cute.

  17. The brooches look fantastic! I saw them on the newsstand recently and thought I should get them, but now I know for certain that I need to pick up a hardcopy of the magazine with the fox brooches kit!

    As a teacher, I would LOVE, simply love to receive a gift like that!
