Some lovely friends of ours moved to a new house just over a week ago, we’re delighted, it’s much closer to us, a walk across the park and we’re almost there.
Following on from moving house, their daughter celebrated her 3rd birthday and I decided I could create something for her new bedroom:
So I spent half an hour rummaging around my boxes of scraps to find some fabric with tiny prints on, the bunting flags are approx 1cm across the top. I should have measured the hoop so you have an idea of size, but I didn’t! It’s small, not tiny but small! The background fabric is some I got at the swap at the Oxfam International Women’s Day event held by The Craft Hub. I free motion embroidered the name on using my Janome rather than my hand operated Singer, and I’m rather pleased with how it went! To be honest I was too lazy to lift the Singer out of the fire place (yes!) and onto the table, I’ll put that down to being a bit poorly this week.
Anyway the present has been delivered and delight was expressed! I tied some ribbon to the clamp for hanging but did that after Tobi had taken a slightly wonky photo (not that I’m complaining)!
Oh yes and as I mentioned in the the title as last I have opened my Etsy shop! And hurrah made my first sale within minutes (that’s what friends are for!). I’d love any feedback (constructive please!), I hope to be adding more to it as time allows! I’m thinking vintage sheet FQ bundles, vintage sheet quilt kits and vintage sheet scrap packs. What would you like to see in it?
I should be back tomorrow with something for the Fugly Fabric Party…
