A Tussie Mussie Sunday

This past Sunday I played with the making of tussie mussies.  I had read several on-line tutorials on how to make tussie mussies and kinda played around with them.  First I started off with circles.

I cut circles out of poster board and fabric.  I glued the fabric to the poster board and started following several directions.  I hit upon one that really worked for me.

Well I did modify it a little.  Everyone should know by now I usually make a pattern my own!

And here is the finished product:

Well what do y'all think?  All anyone has to do is remember the bigger the circle the bigger the tussie mussie!

Now for the fun of my post.  I am going to have a drawing for these exp. tussie mussies.  Two lucky people will get one of these.  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post.  Don't forget I will need your address to send the prize on.  So if you would contact me with a way to get in touch with you I will be able to send your prize on.  My email address is .

Aren't tussie mussies supposed to be filled with flowers, candy or cq embellishments??? LOL JUST KIDDING!!
These are lovely. Looks like fun. Did these originate during the Victorian era? I don't remember what I've read. Thanks for the giveaway.

Good morning. Thank you for putting me out of my misery. At least I know what a tussie mussie is. Why haven't I discovered them before. They're really cool. Please enter me in your draw. I would love to see one close up. Blessings Lesley

I would get the fussies without one of your mussies. I want one with lots of lace for my darling little Grace. Filled with candy would be dandy. You get a gold ring, they're just right for Spring. Please enter my name, then draw out the same.

HUGS, Shari
