Boxy Bag..

Today i made a boxy bag. Im very pleased with my first attempt!

You are meant to use interfacing to make it firmer, but i made it with a thicker cotton on the outside...next time i'll try the interfacing!

What do you think? I think a duo fabric outer would look cute :)

Long Overdue..

This post is long overdue..as the title says!
My laptop has been broken for a while now and funding issues meant a fix had to wait! I now have it back and so im back to my blog!

Heres some things i've been up to in the past few weeks...

1. Making Union Jack Cushion.

I joined in the Great British spectacle that was the Royal Wedding, and my offering was this cushion. Pretty and now is pride of place in my Mini Cooper :) How very British of me.

2. Making Beds.

Well, Duvet Covers to be precise :) This colourful creation cost roughly £8 to make and was lots of fun. I suggest everyone make their own duvet! :) And matching Cushions ;)

3. Exploring New Cushions.

Some beauties I have found recently...

4. Last but not least..Owl cushions!

My sister loves these, so ive decided to make her one for her graduation in July.

Heres some inspiring ones ive found so far...

Its good to be back! Hopefully it wont be too long until my next post!

Love Lil xx
