On Saturday I was lucky enough to get a last
minute place on the Hope & Elvis workshop
The studio is full of inspiration ...
and things from the past.
There are cases full of fabric, buttons, lace, and papers
to choose from.
Last year, while in Cornwall, I collected some sea
glass. At last I have found a way to display
some of it.
I then moved on to this picture transfer.
Picking fabrics that complemented it.
Louise showed us how to make pocket inserts
so I had a go myself.
But now what should I make it into?
I decided on a cuddle cushion in the end with buttons
and a cosy pocket to keep my hands warm
while watching tv.
Then I started to rummage through the driftwood.
I had chosen this selection of fabric to work with.
Perfect for a sailing boat don't you think?
Bunting and sails ...
tied onto the driftwood ...
and part sewn, part glued onto a
feather cushion covered in an old
Not the most practical thing I've made
but I love it all the same.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
