Here's what Ros had to say about her tutorial:  After I made the bias binding last week, I had about 18 - 20" of piped cord left over... not enough to pipe around a cushion... but too much just to bin, so what to do with it? I sat there twiddling it and started to make a flower shape, but really did I need another flower brooch... err no! And then it came to me, a handbag charm and for this you will need:

Ros's Bio:I live by the sea, in Essex, in Leigh-on-sea. I have been making things since I was a child, earliest memories were embroidering squares of binca matting, making felt egg cups and ripping back my knitting when my sister had picked up a dropped stitch... yep, it really did have to be all my own work! I am a dreadful hoarder, with stashes of wool and fabric hidden around my house, together with the projects that I have not yet finished. I am currently making cushions, quilted, appliqued, stencilled... actually just anything that I will enjoy crafting.
