June


Today i finished my June project , just in time ... because my co-worker went on holydays and that means more hours at the office....
and  today is  national Holiday - Day of Portugal and Portuguese communities - celebrated on 5 continents - I had plenty of time

Must confess that it was a little bit hard to turn over once sewn , and i used something softer then  iron-on pellon .
 I didn´t had  a pretty button,  so i glued a ladybug.
hope you enjoyed...
