Secret Sewing

Now that Christmas is over, presents have been opened and surprises can no longer be spoiled... here are a couple of badges I made as gifts this year:
A sweet and simple donkey silhouette for someone who dreams of owning an orchard and two donkeys ... ... and a replica of the Penguin Books logo to adorn the jacket of a Penguin nut. Not the most original things I've ever made, I know, but I put a lot of love into the stitching and they seem to have been well-received! The little Penguin badge in particular was rather fiddly - very satisfying when it was finished, and totally worth it to make the badge a wearable size.

I am the recipient of the little donkey and he is just wonderful. I pinned him on immediately and showed him round with much pleasure. Thanks Babe.
