Now all the recipients have their presents I can show you what I made, starting with cushions/pillows. This one is for my brother. There are lots of little clues for him in the fabric . Iconic brands- he is a graphic designer, Peanuts Dr fabric- he has had a lot of trips for allergies this year but is all sorted now
ironic references to coolness- he lives in London
random words and mispelt Japanese London fabric
Food and lego- a fine combination!
Something a bit calmer for my sister, she is a poor sleeper so this is a intended as an aid, a balm to sleepness nights. The fabrics relate to the forest surrounding sleeping beauty so a bit of Joel Dewberry Herringbone Modern Meadow , some dandelion clock seeds from V and A, a bit of vintage orange, some Lecien Folklore tucked away in the meadow and Suzuko Koseki at the very edge.
I stamped the linen and heat set it with an iron- the hush label came from a scarf.
And the tiniest was a little mini log cabin lavender bag for my swap with Ingrid, I thought she would like the little bird and its fruity garden.
