Hotties are back ;0)

As much as I love making bags, it is SO nice to have a change of scenery.  I've been making my hot water bottles again.  This year though I have got a couple of new designs - so far!  I make them out of gorgeous soft grey fleece, which is stretchy too, so your hot water bottle is nice and snug.  I find it very therapeutic sewing blanket stitch, I think it gives the cover a real old fashioned, cosy, homely feel.  Here's a sneak peak before they head for Folksy.  What do you think?
Introducing ... 'Wishing on a Star'...


... and 'Strawberry Dreams'.


The strawberry even has tiny pips, unfortunately it's difficult to see in the photograph.  Last year I made green, purple, pink and blue hotties, I've decided to work towards a rainbow of them.

Hope you're all having a lovely Tuesday, if you're looking for my usual 'Tuesday Tips' they will be returning in a couple of weeks.                             
See you soon... Marice x
