Just a very quick post, before I go to make dinner, to share with you the sweet little lavender scented patchwork pincushions I've just made from vintage French and English fabrics.
From my stash I found some lovely vintage French blue Toile de Jouy which I combined with vintage ticking and linen, and some English vintage pink and pale turquoise toile fabric.....the fabrics are so pretty.
Filled with soft filling and a little lavender, they just need the open bit stitched together which I shall do tomorrow in natural light.
They will then be listed in my Etsy Shop.
The little hessian pincushions below were put into my Etsy Shop today.
They are made with vintage white linen and backed with blue and cream striped ticking, and the frayed hessian patches are stamped with sewing-themed words, and stitched to the linen with red stitches.
They too have a little lavender inside to give a gentle lavender scent when in use.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
