As a very busy person (Mum, Wife, Employee, general Secretary for my husband’s plumbing business, home maker, house keeper… You get the idea!) having an original idea never seems to happen. Which is why I love all the blogs out there – so much inspiration – and once again I need to credit another for giving me a shove down another creative road.
I love their quirky designs, and have used them to produce this triptych for Boy’s bedroom. Not as traditional as Casey’s choices, but perfect for brightening up a toddler’s bedroom and a lot of fun to sew. And quick too – a bit of instant gratification! Sometimes that’s just what the doctor orders.
I’ve embroidered onto bits of Calico (Muslin for my US and Canadian friends) that are either off cuts from making trial-run garments or have been salvaged from the trial runs themselves (I transfer all the changes from the fabric to the paper patterns as it makes storage more compact).
So what’s not to love? Something fun, beautiful and has a bit of recycling thrown in for good measure!
