I really should be going to work but decided to have a fresh coffee and a quick blog fix beforehand.
I've been making some cute little birdies with some scrap fabric which has been calling to me for ages. Here are a couple of samples. I'm also going to try them out in scraps of embellished sari fabric I cut off a torn cushion.
We had some ripped plastic union flag bunting left over from our Eurovision party last week. I salvaged a couple of the A4-sized flags, ironed them onto white cotton under greaseproof paper and peeled the plastic off, leaving a pale imprint. I then sewed up this shabby little bag. The birdies are currently nesting in it.
I am no longer a whoopie virgin! I tried my first baking session with these vanilla ones but didn't fancy the marshmallow filling so I used up some choccy butter icing I had in the freezer. I also didn't have plain yogurt so experimented with Amore greek yogurt with walnuts! Worked out fine (whew!)
Now for work ...
