It’s my Mum’s Birthday today! – Happy Birthday Mum (she’s not computer literate, but just in case!).
I have been making gifts for some family and friends birthday presents, and Mum was no exception.
She has a Border Collie X dog, whom she adores, so I have been on the look out for fabric with border collies on it for months. Sadly, I couldn’t find any. I did manage to cater to her border collie love though, with a stunning compact mirror from @_Littlegems “Pawfect Pets” range on Twitter. She’d crystallised an image of Tia onto the front of the mirror (so this is also handmade) – but sadly I forgot to take a photo 😦
Anyway, because I couldn’t get any border collie fabric, I went for Mum’s next love – she has a rabbit. I managed to find a pretty fabric panel with rabbits on, and made this into a cushion cover. It’s backed with black Kona cotton, and is in an envelope style:
I also did a handmade card for my Mum. I haven’t done many of these, so am still experimenting with different techniques. Mum was happy with this decoupaged card though:
I have an exciting project coming up! I’ve signed up to do a cushion swap, and the deadline is drawing very near, so I need to get a move on. So I should have some new pics for you soon.
Don’t forget my lavender pillows are available for sale (see previous post for details).
Please share my blog with your friends. Thanks.
