Rachael was my partner for the April mini mystery and she received it today so i can share with you. We received the pen in the post and could decorate it anyway we wanted. A very thin/flimsy piece of 32ct fabric fitted into the barrel, so i decided to stitch 1x1 a latticework type design. BUT when i came to insert it just that tiny amount of thread made it too thick, so i drew the pattern onto some lavendar coloured paper i had using the same colours and inserted that. The fob is the same fabric and i stitched the same design on the back of that. I also sent Rachael the little piece for the inside so she could either throw it away or make a fob or something with it LOL
DH waited till i had been to the PO with this and then said, why didn't you photocopy the little piece you stitched and use that, it would have looked just like the stitching then!!! ..... sharp clip round the ear hole was called for i think, now why didn't i think of that!!!!
