Take the aforesaid divine fabrics and the lovely rosey vintage one from Donna (which appeared in the lavender bags; now I've cut into it, I'm raring to keep using it!) Cut them into strips and patchwork them together. Ok so far.
Decide to combine the patchwork with natural linen as this tends to set pretty, colourful prints off rather splendidly. Find the interfacing stash and get it laid out ready on the cutting table.
Ahhhh. Problem. A big, furry, purry problem of the ginger variety.
Hmmm, interfacing is so lovely and fleecy and cosy. Purrrrrrrrr!
Charlie-Boy safely disappeared (when he wanted to of course, it had nothing to do with me) and the bags finished, it was time for a spot of embellishment. Oooh, love this bit. Decisions, decisions...
Will it be ribbon?
A vintage brooch?
A vintage china posy?
A crocheted flower perhaps?
I could do with a sit down to decide. Or maybe not. Grrrr, more purrry fur.
Anyway, much de-furring later, the little bags are finally finished. Ta dah!
So I went for the ribbons and the vintage brooches. That saved having to choose between those two at least!
Aww, they're sweet, I love them! Hopefully, someone else will like them at the Fair or be kind enough to treat their nearest and dearest to a patchworky Christmas pressie (only 99 days until the fair!)
Have a fab weekend, everyone. Come on out, sunshine, you know you want to!!!
