Hello again. Inbetween sorting out a Steampunk outfit and re-enacting I have been able to make a few things. Firstly a ring pillow for Ellie’s best friend Becky from University who got married this week.
The theme was linen and lace with dark blue so I used some of my vintage crochet stash and Jenny of Elefantz’s monogram patterns as well as some flowers from an old pair of sandals that had worn out to fit in with the something old something new, something borrowed and something blue.
I am very pleased with how it turned out, I love the combination of linen and crochet and lace and have been saving lots of other inspiration pictures to my Pinterest boards.
Was very pleased as well to find a fabric stall at the Steampunk market selling another version of one of my favourite haberdashery fabrics. The lady was called Jill from English Rose and she was very lovely. You can find her Etsy store here.
I have got this print in grey and black and cream and black and have used it for the cute baskets and now have a whole metre in blue and cream as it was such a bargain 🙂 I also bought another print that I had seen on Ebay from the stall, love that sewing machine.
I am aiming to make a few more fabric baskets this weekend as Yarndale is only a few weeks away so better get crafting! Have a lovely weekend and thanks for visiting.
