First up a fab tutorial to make mushrooms and toadstools from a lovely blog called The Little House by the Sea.
The tutorial is great, really easy to follow. And look what I made:
I skipped the part with the embroidery on the stalks because I wanted to make mine more simplistic (and more importantly my emboidery is rubbish!) but you should have a look at the emboidered ones. So beautiful! I also had to alter mine slightly because the white felt I used was a bit too cheap and got all stretched when I turned the caps the right way round - easily fixed by adding an extra ring of white felt and I'm actually quite happy with the effect.
There is also a flikr group with photos for other people who'd used the patterns. I've just uploaded mine too.
This is another mushroom I made using the pattern. Its almost exactly the same but I put the stitching on the outside of the cap and used an old cotton reel to stabilise it.
Next time I'm going to have a go at the embroidery on the stalk.
