Its been a week of Summery makes for me (yes, its just around the corner - how time flies!)
Strawberry Fields Basket
Strawberries are one of my favourite things about summer... we grow lots on our allotment and as you can see from the pic at the top of the page, they have found their way into our garden too, even the hanging baskets!
Very soon those pretty white flowers will be red juicy strawberries and i will be busy picking, washing and hulling (and eating..) them, as well as turning them into jam and lots of other yummy things (thinking of having a go at strawberry wine this year... i'll keep you updated on that one! :))
With all this on my mind it seemed like the perfect time to do something with the pretty strawberry print cotton i've had in my stash for a while... the result is two new storage baskets (one for me and one to sell!)
The base and lining is made from hessian so its nice and durable with a country style rustic feel.
It is 20cms tall (as a guide it will comfortable hold twenty apples).
I think it would work equally well in a kitchen or craft room, i'm thinking of using the one i'm keeping to give strawberry themed gifts (jam etc) at Christmas time!
This one is available from my Etsy shop now priced £18.
Strawberry Fields Forever Sign
Strawberry Fields... a Beatles classic and the perfect summer time anthem i think! I couldn't resist making a sign to match the basket with these famous lyrics embroidered on it along with a couple of little strawberries.
I'll be listing it on my website, Etsy shop and other outlets tomorrow priced £11.00. I hope you like it too!
Butterfly Meadow Inspirational Sign
I've also made a sign with some of my Butterfly Meadow fabric (thank you for all the kind comments about the basket i made with it last week!). This one features an inspirational quote which i think would be really pretty in a little girls room or crafting/creative space...
Along side the quote, 'Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful' i have embroidered a little butterfly.
This sign will also be available from my Etsy shop, website and other outlets really soon priced £10.
That's all from me for this week... what have you been up to? I look forward to finding out over at Handmade Harbour!
Thanks for dropping by :) x
