Some of my sewing projects

Today I found this fabric in my local C.S. 20 yards of it for £15 :) I think the local curtain makers in town had a sort out as its brill. My OH built a floor to ceiling shelf cupboard for me so some of this will make a curtain to cover the front :) Some small patchwork cushions I have done for the stall in March. They are only small ones to dress the bed with but I thought they might sell better than bigger ones. I keep making these fabric boxes to keep my fabric in as Im running out of storage room and these are ideal for the smaller bits. This is another buttercup bag (5th one I have made)

These are quilted tubs I made for my daughter (horse mad lol) and her friend (she calls me mummy Sue as she spends a lot of time here lol) I filled them with girly products and some silly bits for xmas. I wanted to give them something they could use after too
These fabric box bags are fun to do, the red one was stuffed with pamper bits for my DIL (she loves baking hence the cupcake t-towels lol), the other one I made a craft hamper for my darling princess.


  1. You've been super busy, lots of lovely makes and a new grandbaby as well.

  2. Oh I love your cushions lots ~ my two kids fight over yours and the little one takes it in the car on any long journey. Your buttercup bag is a beauty, that fabric is lovely. I must make one of these for myself are they simple to do?

  3. Thank you :)
    The buttercup bags are so easy to do you must make one :) there are only 2 pattern pieces to the main bag and lining and Made by Rae's instructions are so easy to follow (if I can do them any one can lol).

  4. Well you have been busy!! What a bargain on the fabric!! Lovely stuff. Really love the quilted tubs, particularly the horse one. (I used to be mad on horses when I was younger until I finally realised my dad would never buy me one and eventually the novelty wore off!) x
