This week under severe restrain I only bought one fabric to add to my stash.
The Trees from Jolly Farm- Henley Studio, Makeower UK
I love everything about this- the colours, the detail, the birds.
The blue is lovely too, maybe next week...
I added a little red apple to the front
I love the bright red dots. The stalk gets lost a bit in the other green but I did not have any solid green to match.
I also have been designing some new foxes.
Something to go with this Boy Fox
Here is a girl fox
The bow is removable and she loves roses and has a button nose.
This basket has longer handles for one hand operation.
And a jumping Fox
I have missed working with felt- this shade is called acorn and is so soft to touch.
I used plain stitching instead of the usual zig-zag satin stitch, and chose a bright orange.
Last year I loved making the Fox Autumn Leaves Purse but it took 2-3 hours to make.
I still love the idea of fabric photos though and creating a pretty scene.
This is work in progress
The fox is talking to her friend the bird. I wanted a blue bird, like the singing Disney birds and a big dotty mushroom! The fox leg was very tricky, I drew it about 6 different ways before settling on this version that I could actually sew.
So it has been very busy here! How was your weekend?
