Reindeer wrapping Paper

I love this time of year. It’s a chance to add glitter to my already colourful existence! I’ve been enjoying making Christmas wrap and cards with the knowledge of what I don’t sell I can use myself! 🙂 The wrap below has just gone onto my Etsy shop.Paper 1 Paper 3 Paper 4 Paper 5These prints were for some glittery reindeer cards.P1030697

Using Off Cuts – Table Runner

I am at my most creative when I have lots of different bits and pieces around me that I can use and I can compose a symphony from from the colours and pattern.

Here is some thing I made from doing just that!Runner 1 Runner 2 Runner 3 Runner 4 Runner 5 Runner 6 Runner 7 I’m very pleased with this, what do you think! 🙂

A Special order finished

I’m pleased to say, a very special, special order is ready to go on its way to Germany. The lovely blue printed pillow covers that I was doing are finished. I had to look carefully for my contrasting fabric, because as you know I like to re-use and recycle!

These have been made with re-purposed vintage cotton sheets, dyed with tea and then hand printed. Contrasted with re-purposed denim.

Here are the three finished pillow covers.
