Happiness is cross stitching blog

A tutorial for a blog reader and a pin cushion made.

Hi everyone, I had a request from a reader of my blog for a tutorial for the monthly cross stitch series that I am stitching from Hands On Designs, so here it is!

I never like to disappoint, so I put this tutorial together, sorry I could not reply to your email but you are a no reply blogger so I could not contact you.

If anyone would like a copy please email me for the pdf, but please remember to send me your email address or I am unable to reply.  
In this tutorial I show how to make the front of the pillow and give a link to a tutorial to make the envelope back, I did not see the point of doing the tutorial for the back of the pillow when there are plenty of good tutorials on the internet already.

Sewing this week. 

I have not done much sewing this week or cross stitching but I did make some more small projects out of the bee fabric for my Etsy shop.
First up was this little pin cushion which I do enjoy making, I love the little wood button.
I then made these little pouches, one for small scissors and then these small pouches for a small cross stitch project or notions pouch.  
Here is my latest Mini Cat design.
Until next time, happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
