Second #applique cushion this week (one more and then I'm done!). I made them using scraps from my fabric stash so I'm pretty happy with them, budget-wise πŸ˜‰ #handmade #family #authorsofinstagram
A lil bit in love with my new floral stag cushion. Appliqued a stag head onto a bright background with floral fabric using thick wadding between layers to make it nice and comfy :) #handmade #homedecor #scottishstyle #kiwiknowhow #authorsofinstagram
Spring cleaning our wardrobes and pantries today yielded more than I imagined. We donated a lot of stuff but I also retained a large pile of clothing to chop up and recycle/have fun with. First project was super-quick (20 minutes!) ...
