More Thread Than You Can Shake A Stick At!

Mum and Dad arrived this morning with my birthday present; more thread than you can shake a stick at! Really pleased with it, such an array of colours! Thanks very much!

And the other day I promised you an amazing recycled make and finally here it is..
I bought some jeans in the sale (they were down from £20 to 2) but they were far too long for me but too good a bargain to miss. I have worn them for a couple of weeks with the bottoms turned up but thought the look wasn't quite me so I took a pair of scissors to them!
Here are the girls with the left over bits;

Within minutes the girls had thought of a new use for them and with some felt scraps, some coloured thread and a little flare here is the finished product;

Elizabeth asked for blue flowers and Francesca being only four and still believing that more is more opted for love-hearts in three shades of pink and a big flower with a button centre!
