These sold out last year as well as the paper ones so I am starting earlier this year. Last year I used slightly bigger baubles so I experimented with sizes. For the one on the left I used 2.25" squares and the only problem was that the pins in the red ones showed and if you look closely at the top you can see the red on the green row. So I added strips of ribbon as I don't like the pins showing.
The tartan one I made using 2.5" squares and this worked much better. The material was also much softer so my thumb didn't get as sore pushing in all the pins. These are made the same as the paper ones except I pin a square at the bottom and then each square is folded into a triangle and then folded again so the stright edge is pinned on either side.
We went to the theatre in Lowestoft last night with friends so stayed overnight in a Premier Inn as it was a long show. The 8 of us enjoyed a lovely meal last night before the show and we will be enjoying a cooked breakfast this morning before heading home, picking up some food shopping on the way. I will be in the craft room all day tomorrow whilst hubby is out and have a lot planned to make. I have a craft fair next Wednesday then none until November when I have 5 fairs booked.
