I was asked to make a kindle cover for someone’s Christmas present , she loved cats and her favourite colour was red. This is what I made her. She really loved it!

Sunshine through my window

25 Jun

After seeing so much bunting around for the Jubilee and helping to make the Palmertson Road bunting, I realised just how much I love it and thought about making some for myself. As we live in a rented property with dreary grey carpets and magnolia artex walls, a little bunting does wonders in brightening up an otherwise very average room.

So far I’ve made a small piece to hang in our front room window so it can give me a cheery greeting when I get home. I plan to go bunting crazy as Andy has stupidly given me free reign to ‘do what I want’.

I used a mix of pink cottons and corduroy to make my double sided flags and joined them all with a lovely polka dot cotton bias.

I have also been asked to make some wedding bunting for a lady so I am looking forward to going white and gold fabric shopping for that. Pop back soon for an update on my progress!xxx

A touch of pink.

My lovely friend is obsessed with pink. Pretty much everything she owns is pink, different shades of pink, but pink none the less! She asked me to make her a full length apron for gardening. It had to be pink and garden themed.

Here is what I made her.

 

She also wanted me to make a draft excluder after seeing a tapestry ‘Home Sweet Home’ one on Amazon. I tried my best to replicate it! I used a lovely soft pink spotty corduroy for the main part of it and used pink fabric scraps to¬†appliqu√©¬†the ‘Home Sweet Home’.

I really need to invest in an embroidery foot for my machine as this was fiddly to say the least! It is most¬†definitely¬†a ‘shabby chic’ ¬†look which I feel needs improving, but my friend was very pleased with the outcome and I guess that’s what counts at the end of the day!
