Fridays were always my me day and I used to make and do in the afternoons. I called them crafternoons. However the afternoon has streched to all day today oh FUN. I started with a little paper hankie holder I think it looksFrench / Nautical/ Patriotic. They only take an hour and scraps. Maybe I'll do a tutorial. Anyway see what you think.
Anyway after that I went on to make a lavender pillow similar to the one I made Mum, from the same book in fact. However changes had to be made because I find it hard to come by the lovely vintagey colours of felt that they seem to use so much in the US. Here it is being made ... I used silk for the central pannal
and here all done.
I am very pleased to say the least. Beads are the glitter of the sewing world. I hope you like it.
Thanks to all those people finding the time to check out my blog, its a reall boost to see that others like and then send supportive comments about my doings. Cheers and Happy Friday.
