These two are ones that I made a while ago:
The top one is rather 'loud' in that there are lots of different patterns and textures, but there are lots of things to discover, including the crocheted dog who lives in a pocket. The fleece muff in the lower picture is very soft and comfortable to have over my hands, but the standard of sewing is sadly very poor because I got the dimensions and construction of the muff totally wrong - and on top, my sewing machine decided it didn't want to sew through several layers of fleece.
For the ones I made on Saturday, I used an old valanced bedspread that I had bought in the scrapstore. I started with the intention of making a muff, but again, got the dimensions wrong, so I ended up with a long and narrow mat.
There are lots of things to fiddle with, including metal buttons on a thong and a large bead underneath the fleece heart on the right, which can be pushed around within the shape.
Not to be defeated, I cut out yet another piece of the quilted bedspread to make a muff. More success this time, and as you can see, there are lots of things to twiddle with both inside and out.
