There’s a local lady who is very talented in the art of origami, she has also worked as a play ranger in our local park, and over the years I’ve got to know her quite well. Kat creates beautifully folded, elegant arrangements by sourcing a variety of high quality and reclaimed papers to produce stunning combinations of colour, form and shape. Kat’s business is called The Paper Florist and not only does she sell flowers but she teaches workshops for children and adults too.
A couple of months ago Kat asked if I would make her a cheque book cover. I said I’d be happy to but it would have to wait until after Christmas. So last weekend I got my brain into gear and came up with a pattern, cut and stitched and this is what I came up with:
Fortunately for me it was not quite what Kat wanted, so I get to keep this for me (unless anyone else wants it!). I use at least 2 cheque books and to keep them in the same place seems like a sensible idea.
Kat came round last week and explained to me what she wanted and chose some fabrics from my stash, and yesterday afternoon while everyone else was out I came up with this:
Pretty simple but hopefully just what she wants! I love her choice of fabrics (Amy Butler Belle range), I have decided to try and stop being precious about the fabrics I have and just get on and use them. I told Kat she could choose whatever she liked and I didn’t hide any from her first!
I was thinking of writing a tutorial for this but I’m not sure if anyone but me (and Kat!) still use cheque books so I’m not sure if it’s worth it. Would you like a tutorial? Just leave a comment and if I get a couple of requests I’ll write one for you.
