As of today, I kept this little blog up for two years, so I am celebrating.
I purchased fat quarter calendar fabric from Spoonflower to turn into a tea towel for a friend - as well as an extra fat quarter in the same print. The fabric is linen/cotton canvas weight. The print is entitled “2012 will be British” and is designed by French illustrator, Virginie Ozanon. The photo below shows the fabric turned into a tea towel.
Calendar tea towels make great gifts, to commemorate a marriage, birth of a baby, new home. This year the summer games take place in London - as well, it is the Diamond Jubilee year. I also turn 40 this year, but I don’t need a tea towel to remember that.Later this week, I will post about the doll house my girls and I have been working on over the Christmas/New Years week. I have been making little doll house blankets and pillows from scraps, practising my serging skills. My good friend loaned me her her serger while she and her family are living overseas. One of my 2012 sewing resolutions is to become competent at using a serger and perhaps invest in one.
I will leave with a few of my favourite crafty memories in 2011.
Thanks for reading this little blog and best wishes for 2012,
