Trapped objects

Many years ago, I came across a project in Stitch magazine that used trapped objects. I liked the idea but didn't want to do that particular project, so earlier this year I made up a piece using trapped objects plus stitching and beading and then made it up into a cushion.

For some time now, Emma has been fascinated by cloaks. She would wrap any piece of fabric she could find (and there are quite a few in my stash) around her shoulders. So I decided to make her a proper cloak - purple, of course. 

And then I remembered the issue with bags at Christmas time, so I found some pink fabric and made a cloak for Olivia as well. Emma loves her cloak but Olivia was less impressed by hers - though she's happy enough in this photo.
