Well its been weeks and weeks since I started sewing my lovely raspberry gingham, powder blue/duckegg
gingham and laura ashley linen bits and pieces and finally today got around to photographing some of them.
Shame I didnt iron the piece of gingham on the left of this pic......
I printed words onto white and natural linen, the one above has faith, a silver hope charm, and then charity
Some are hop and lavender pillows and hearts
I also made some sweet little bags with Laura Ashley Clarice and lined with cream polka dot lawn, and these have appliqued faces or scenes on with vintage mother of pearl buttons and guipure lace Also some little brooch pillows or can be used for pin cushions.
I love this red gingham one, with faith and charity words and a rose printed pocket
I made loads and loads of victorian style hanging boots (my mum used to call these Luton boots that she wore when she was a little girl-shame she is no longer here to see what I have been sewing recently)
Am keeping some bits(made far too many, got carried away! And am running out of friends to give to!) So might put some on ebay later as it is free listing today, thats if I get time, West Ham are playing Man United, so will be watching the match, then its tea time for the hordes (dad, brother,son and daughter) so I might get to list some before midnight! Come on You Irons and beat Man Utd today!!
