Some precision required!
How do you quilt? I miss Radio 4 (can't have it loud enough without feeling that it would disturb other people) which is what I usually listen to. Now I have the technology to stick an iPod down my bra (classy!) once I've downloaded some podcasts from iPlayer. I sew away happily with my audio landscape 'comfort blanket'.
I read about this idea in 'Cloth Paper Scissors' (I think). Take a square of felt, add a square of fusible, jig saw some fabric scraps over it, then cut up to the size that you fancy before adding stitches or other embellishments. Six little hand sewing projects, perfectly portable!
These are cut into 4 1/2" x 3" pieces, ideal for card toppers. I just hope that everyone I want to send cards to likes purple too!
In fact I made another one (not shown here!) and kits for another half a dozen or so. Some of my friends came round for some kitchen table crafting last week but some of those who couldn't come wanted kits. Quick to make, fun to finish.
