This week's been all about making things with my latest fabrics... its been so exciting to see my designs in fabric form and immensely satisfying to see the items i envisioned when i first started working on them through to completion!
I have had so much kind support and generous comments from you folks about these designs in digital form (thank you!) and i really hope that you like what i've created with the fabrics... :)
Colourful Cat Cushions
Regular readers will recognise these colourful cats from recent posts about my cat fabrics and craft papers. I'm really happy with how this design turned out on the linen/cotton blend fabric from Spoonflower...
... and i'm also really with the finished cushion covers i made with it! (see photo at the top of this post)
I have used a double stitched french seam internally for strength and a neat finish and i've also added Free Spirit Designs labels which i'm really happy with too!
They will be listed in my shops soon priced £25.50 each.
Colourful Cat Tea Towel
I also made a tea towel from the colourful cat fabric - perfect for a cat lovers kitchen!
This will also be available in my shops soon, priced £12.50.
'Wash Day' Tea TowelI had a lot of fun with my wash day design and i'm sooo pleased with how its turned out printed onto fabric - really cheery and fun just how i'd hoped!
So far i've made tea towels with it.
As with all my tea towels it comes with a handy handing hook on the reverse...
...and arrives tied up with pretty string and tag -perfect for pressies!
This tea towel is also priced £12.50 and will be available from all my shops soon!
I still have some of this fabric left over... any idea what you'd like to see it made into..? :)
Gardening Fabrics, Hanging Hearts
If you popped by my blog last week you may remember me mentioning that i'd received the sample swatches of my gardening fabrics. Again, i'm super pleased with how they turned out and i couldn't wait to start creating with them!
These two rustic style hanging hearts are what i've come up with so far...
They each have a hand embroidered panel on the front and are stuffed with wool and some dried lavender too for a lovely aroma!
I love the calm stillness of the garden, even though the plants are busily growing and flowering and insects are busily pollinating (and eating my seedlings!) everything is at peace and its such a relaxing environment to be in...
'Peas and Quiet' encapsulates this for me, i hope it makes you smile too :)
Everyone needs reminding to water the plants don't they, especially at this time of year when thirsty little seedlings quickly suffer without a drink. Well, here's just the thing to hang up as a reminder for yourself (or anyone else you've trusted this vital task with!)
They will both be popping up in my shops soon so keep a look out!
That's it from me for this week. Do join me in exploring all the fabulous Handmade Monday blogs over at Handmade Harbour, there's always lots of lovely things to see :)
Have a wonderful week x
