As a general rule, my makes revolve around fabric. Any fabric. Bright and bold, pale and pastel, floral, spots, animals, anything! I can spend hours routing through websites and Ebay looking for something that is just right for my requirements. I'll quite happily demolish a duvet cover or curtain to get at what I want!
For the most part, everything I make I sell. Either on my website www.simplydivinethings.co.uk, on Ebay at http://stores.ebay.co.uk/simply-divine-things or on Facebook www.facebook.com/simplydivinethings. I do like getting my teeth stuck into various projects and will try anything once. I tend to have several projects on the go all at once and like a butterfly I will flit from thing to thing as the mood strikes.
This bag is intended for my nephew's birthday present. Now granted his birthday isn't until May, but I kind of needed a male gift bag prototype to photograph for my website, as up until now I only had plain white ones for boys and girls, and a pink/lilac design for the females. Any feedback on this design is welcome.
I have also lovingly looked through my Cath Kidston fabrics. Spotty designs, Paisley, Provence Rose, Mini Cowboy, I love them all! I can't seem to pick my favourite to make a sunglasses case for the new spcs I picked up in Boots at the weekend. I know I already have two cases, but one more won't hurt right?! Especially not if it's Cath Kidston.
I have more makes planned for the prints, and this will include pictures like the Ikea Rosali prints here. Such a great and affordable way to brighten your home and available in a huge range of sizes from 6" x 6" up to 24" x 24" in my shop here.
I just wanted to add that I ordered a hand crafted Rosali purse for my sister in law's birthday present from a lady who runs Sewn To Be Treasured on Facebook. It was very well made and only served to grow my love for the versatility of this print.
From Fine To Funky, a new business who has come up with some lovely designs for utilising Cath Kidston prints. I for one, am a fan of hers.
That is all, for this week at least. I've got a busy few days coming up. I have a photo collage and frame to work on for my sister, and a funeral to go to on Friday to say goodbye to my beloved Grandad, who sadly passed away two weeks ago. Take care everyone and happy making x
