This is my Christmas wreath that I made last year. I found those cute little mushrooms and thought that they would look super cute on my wreath, but they drove the cats mad. In the end I had to take them off but I wanted a photo to remember how cute it was! I hand this wreath in the window and you can see it from outside.

|Cute baby leggings|
This fabric is sweet the other fabric was baby pink with white polka dots! This is the first time I've used the double needle that came with the sewing machine it makes it look very professional. It was this tutorial that really made me want to have a go.
