This has been a top secret crafty project with my lovely Niece Rebecca. She wanted to make her Mummy something special for her 40th birthday so between us we decided she could learn a new skill and make Mummy something totally un expected.
So she knuckled down and learned to knit ! She has worked tirelessly at each visit to do a few more rows each time and was rewarded by the growing piece.
Grandma found the perfect mug - Mummy likes a big cup of tea- and Rebecca then learned a second new skill of finger knitting to make the button loops.
Lastly Rebecca learned to sew on the buttons before finally finishing her project 3 days before Mummies birthday - what an absolute star!
Today Mummy will be opening this for the very first time and will see all the hard work Rebecca has put in just for her - such love and devotion from a 7 year old girl. Well done Rebecca I am soooo proud of you and know Mummy and Daddy are too.
Oh and as this was not a pattern we followed this is an original mug hug or mug cosy - perfect for the wintery nights to come.
If you would like to leave Rebecca a message (it would be cool if you did) she will be stopping by to read it soon - as will her class mates and Teachers as she is including my blog in a presentation she is doing about someone who inspires her. Bless her thinking of me xx
She sure is a crafter now and I am sure will be all her life.
I didnt take pictures of her card but she made for Mummy used lots of stamping techniques - stamping and blending, colouring the stamp the huffing before stamping as well as adding her own artwork to the mix.
Watch out craft world !
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a little love for her
