I was inspired by a piece of fabric I unearthed whilst rummaging for something else. When I was just a young thing, I used to make my own clothes. This was a leftover piece of interlining fabric with a rather nice linen-look to it - proper vintage too!
So a day off was pleasantly spent matching up fabrics and trimmings and sewing up pincushions and lavender sacks.
These little wooden hearts were re-purposed - originally they had union jacks painted on them. We had rather a lot of them in the shop so I took a few, painted them white, then trimmed with fabric and lace.
This is my attempt at an Easter Bunny - it was a challenge as the fabric is quite stiff, not sure I'll be making any more, it was a bit fiddly. I think the ears are too big.
I used self-cover buttons for some of the embelishments. They are so easy to make and don't use much fabric, great if you only have tiny scraps of precious vintage fabrics.
Some hanging lavender sachets using checks and ticking.
With Mother's Day over now we are gearing up for Easter in the shop, plus preparations for our special event. Hope to show some more pics soon.
