Click for fun fabrics and trimmings.........

Friday, 5 June 2009


I'm loving making these fabric pictures, the houses for Debbie in my last post and one for me. But inspired by this - I made a piece of scrappy patchwork (those CK samples are good for this kind of thing!), cut out a tea cup shape - template found online as my freehand skills are very limited!!).
I have another cut out ready to applique one for me. I think I enjoy painting the frame just as much!!! (this one in LA duck egg).
This one was made for the SCC kitchen themed swap for bibbitybob.

I made a carrier bag holder, and reversable tea cosy in co-ordinating fabrics. I like the panel effect of the holder (so much I now have one!!)
Bibbity did ask me what fabrics I used (sorry it took so long to get back to you), the stripe is Globaltex Lulu stripe which I got from here.
The floral is globaltex too, from Dunelm, I will try and find a link for you, but I bought a while ago in store...

I'm glad you liked what I made and I only stalked you a little bit to discover your kitchen colours lol!!

I made a cupcake canvas for my swap with pixiedust and you're right, they're great fun to make.

Good to have you back.
Have a great weekend

You've have been busy, and what lovely things you've made too.
I have the floral Glogaltex, made cushion covers with it, it is pretty isn't it.
