I am on a roll today….
I’ve just finished a custom order. I put my Kitchen Bunting on my Facebook page, And one of my friends liked it as Much as I did!! **Smiles and does a happy dance**
This lovely bunting is made with linen, bought over at Abakhan Fabrics…. If I had any tips for people sewing linen on the bias, it would be to starch and press. I found it much easier to sew 🙂
So what is the next project you ask??
I’m making a few two tone cushion covers for my living-room… No doubt they will be used as missiles by my boys but hey, I’ll cross that bridge when we come to it!!
How is everyone today? It’s a overcast day again today… So no new photos to blog new projects. I have been sewing away at Lovely wee Lavender Drawer Scents.
I got the idea when I was thinking about birthday gifts for my mother in-law.
Here is set one.. They have been named “Divine Diamonds” I am a sucker for fine lace tape!
This is set two, and is named “Ivory Eye”
And here is Number three, She is named “Daisy Chain”.
And last but by no means least, My fave…..
This is “Girly Frill” This is my fave by far!
I made all these with linen from my stash, Buttons from my tin, the stuffing and lavender were all from the stash too! I bought some of the Lace Tape from Kaela, She has a fabby new shop with haberdashery to die for!! I mean look at the wee handmade trinkets **Squeek** I LOVE them!!
I have a few more of these in the pipe line, as I’ve opened a shop over on Etsy, It’s has no stock up yet BUT I am on a mission. Now that the boys are in school full-time, my sewing time just jumped up by 10 hours a week!!! I’m Like a new woman, I have a new sense of accomplishment on all sections of my life…..
I’m not JUST a mummy… I am a content mummy with a sense of accomplishment!!
How is everyone?? I’m back at my much loved Sewing Class, to get my juices flowing I covered my pin-board. And yesterday I made a couple of bunting to match….
I made 14 bunting, so figured 2 sets….
Bunting 1 in it’s new home, beside my newly covered pin-board!
Bunting number 2 in it’s new home…
A wee close up.
I’m glad I started this project my kitchen looks lovely, my stash is a little smaller and my mojo is rearing to go!
Has anyone else been revamping??
I have been sewing away aimlessly for a while, waiting for the boys to get into school full time…. And yes it’s about to happen, both boys will be in till afternoon as of Monday. To say I am excited is a total understatement!! I have to add I love my boys BUT it will be great to stop thinking of sewing and actually getting some done!!
Like every sewist, I have a list as long as my arm I want to be getting on with… Yes I’m taking about you!!!!!!!!!!! 😉
Today, I managed to get a project done that’s been on the to do list for the last 3 weeks!!! I used some of my fabric stash for it too, it’s been in the drawers upstairs for ages.
Pin-Board Spruce up!
The Pin-Board is from Argos £7.99 and the fabric is from my stash….
You can pick up a pin-board (40 x 60) over at Hobby Crafts just now with 25% off!! (£4.99)
So here it is…… What do you think? I know it’s not perfect BUT, I love it. I am now going to have order and I have shaved a little off that shameful stash of mines!! I plan on making some bunting with the left over fabric.
Have you been stash busting??
If this coffee burst stays for a while, I might just get some of my squillion other posts up!! (Fingers crossed)
