Going crazy with Patchwork, Father's Day and Fripperies

I love crazy patchwork with embroidery and whilst have done by hand before, my new machine can do it for me. Saw this design and just had to make up in the muted colour fat quarters in my stash.

The patchwork hearts are an old make but still love them, something vintage about the styling

The good thing about crazy patchwork is you can use all those odd shape scraps of fabric that often get thrown out. Another excuse to hang onto everything.

Father's Day

Mug Rugs, and Cards

Never sure how popular this day is but saw the mustache and loved the design. Can be done as Happy Birthday as well on the mug rugs


Alice in Wonderland Watch Fobs

Vintage styling with an image printed onto fabric, pearls, crystals and roses.

Shabby Chic decos all hand sewn with cheesecloth, lace, ceramic button and a pearl
