tie purse

Posted on

Whenever I’m in a charity shop, I always have a rummage through the selection of old ties. Having acquired a few of the things, I figured I should probably start turning them into stuff.

heart balloon cushion

Posted on

What with it being summer and ice cream weather, I was wondering what to do with the scraps of ice cream patterned fabric that I had leftover from a previous cushion. I started to cut out the individual ice creams and then tried spreading them out across different fabrics. It didn’t quite work, so I cut some fabric out to back them and started trying to group them together.

ribbon cushion

More cushion action, once again using my seemingly never-ending supply of remnants from C & H Fabrics.

The fabric is absolutely beautiful, really light and perfect for the reason I was making it – as part of a wedding gift!

wedding heart card

Posted on

Inspired by the two G/Jems, I decided to investigate the exciting world of fabrics and book pages on cards.

glass decanter vases

Posted on

An idea I had for my wedding was using glass decanters to display flowers. They are really cheap to pick up (about £1 from your local charity shop) and you can decorate them too if you like.

I used strings of pearls (also harvested from the charity shops), ribbons, buttons and brooches to decorate mine.

Firstly, I looped the necklaces round the decanter and put brooches on the plain ones. Next, I thread a pearly button onto two ribbons and tied them together in a bow, as below.
