Last week was one of those weeks, and I am still catching up, so I still haven't managed to get the tutorial ready yet. We've had mice - and outbreak of lice (the joys of having young children) and we've had punctures and all sorts. I am still trying to catch up with the mountain of washing and ironing that has created, but i thought I would show you a few things I have made that haven't made it to the blog yet.
You probably already know I love black and white, but I also love red and white. The cushion and little quilt cover are my youngest daughters. Her room theme will be red and white once I get around to it. The quilt is make from a vintage cotton sheet and I used a red fabric pen for the design. It was one of those ultra quick spur of the moment kind of projects. The red heart on the cushion, is from a bit of fabric from my favourite skirt when I was a girl. It was actually Laura Ashley furnishing fabric. I wore it as a long skirt when I was about 8 or 9 and then as a teenager it was a not quite so long gypsy skirt. I loved it and have always meant to do something with it. I am sure there are going to be more projects on the way with this. It was just a quick fix with some Bondaweb (Wonder Under). Here is a close up of the animals. My little girl loves these.
