Here are a few of my latest creations I have been busy making ready for the Cotswold Vintage Fair next Saturday.
I must admit I am rather pleased with the French Vichy check cushions and was very tempted to keep them. I actually plucked up the courage to use this beautiful 19th century fabric I bought from Donna when we did the fair in Totnes. I have also been modifying a pattern to make hot water bottle covers, a bit fiddly but worth the effort.
I thought people might appreciate a hot water bottle with a vintage fabric cover, something a bit different from the norm, and lovely to snuggle up to on winter nights.
I have also found a small part of a gorgeous antique 19th century cutter quilt I bought in Devon a couple of years ago. I didn't realise I had any left as I had made my friend some cushions when she had her shop. I have made a large, rather shabby cushion from a piece, and probably have just about enough to make another.
Another hot water bottle cover, this time made in a vintage quilted 50's fabric.
I still have some making to do this week in the shape of fabric coasters filled with cinnamon and crushed cloves. When you place your coffee mug on them the heat makes them smell lovely, very appropriate for Christmas I thought! Hope you have all had a great weekend.
