At the beginning of the week I picked up this piece of gorgeous vintage fabric from one of my piles of fabric (I really must get it organized!)...
... actually they were remnants as I had used it to make this fabulous pinny last year.
My intention was to make some simple wash bags out of the remaining fabric, but then this happened!
I haven't done much free style machine embroidery and this was a very long time ago, but it is something that I love and would like to experience more.
I was quite pleased with the outcome, and this little flower did actually end up being made into a wash bag, just not in the way I had originally intended.
|This is now available to buy in my Etsy Shop|
Once I'd done one flower, I had to do another! This time bigger as I'd decided it would make a lovely cushion...
... with some hand embroidery. A fabulous excuse to sit and create French knots!
And then came another cushion!
These are also available to buy in my shop, alongside other new products for 2012.
I feel a bit reluctant to part with them, but they wouldn't go with the fabric I have bought to make my curtains. I'll just have to make more for myself in different colours!
Also, a reminder that this little Foxy Loxy journal will be given a new home on 27th January. If you would like him to come and live with you please click on this link to find out how.
Hope you all have a fantastic week x
