Months ago I re-covered 2 canvases with burlap (I didn’t like the creation from a previous crafty exploit). I had two ideas for these two new burlap canvases, but couldn’t decide. Many would describe me as having ‘thing’ for butterflies and birds. Previous ramblings featuring birds and butterflies are testament to that. Before making a decision between these two beautiful creatures, I wanted to see what they both looked like on the canvases, so created them both in a kinda draft format (so excuse all the pins holding everything onto the canvas). There has been a gap of three months between the first option and the second. Rather than get my nickers-in-a-knot making the final decision, I thought I’d let my blog readers decide for me. **MILD PANIC SETS IN ***
In follow-up to my previous post Sewing Things… I have added a few more items to my list of things I have made with my machine. I can safely say I am getting back into the swing of sewing again after 20 years away from a machine.
With so many friends having babies lately I have really struggled to find quality (and aesthetically appealing) nursery decor for presents. I don’t know about you, but I can’t buy a present I don’t like myself, and because of this little idiosyncrasy I was left with no option than to start making nursery decorations to give as presents. (there will be several future posts about the options I have come up with)
