Early Christmas present

 I had an early Christmas present last week... a massive donation of fabric from a friend who was given it from their friend...!! I love it when people have too much fabric and feel the need to give it away. This is just a very small pile of the amount I was given. So inspiring to be given piles of fabric!! I left it sitting in the living room  for a few days just looking at it, mixing and matching colours and imagining what I could make with it. So many ideas came up, I'll have to get sewing again.

Elephants and apples

 Some cute elephants on these cushions eating apples. These would go nicely in my son's room as he already has quite a few elephants in there in various forms! these are available here

Old favourites and new obsessions

 Still making cushions... I think it's addictive and somewhat theraputic!! I have so much fabric, so many colour combinations and options, it's never ending! A bit of pink with orange, an old favourite with a current obsession.....

Elephant stack

Today this Elephant Stack in blue is featured on the front page of the made it website. Always exciting when something is featured as I know more people view my store that way!

A friend for yellow sleepy bunny

I took a break from making cushions and made a friend for the yellow sleepy bunny I had made previously. It's a pink version! Not too many pink things get made these days but I couldn't resist these pink stripes on a recent pop in to a fabric store. I think I make things that could go in my boys rooms if they don't get given as a gift or put in the made it store! These will be for sale soon and I am making some pink cushions also! Pink is making a comeback!

Green raindrops

This is a pair of cushions I made as a custom order for a lovely customer! The raindrops have been appliqued on to compliment the raindrop fabric. I love green but wouldn't wear it with my skin tone... much like yellow!! Home decor and decorating is always a great option for green for me, as is dressing your children in it!
