Ma Belle Mère...

...kindly gave me a bundle of Cath Kidson patchwork fabrics for my birthday. They have sat quietly in the armoire in the hallway for a couple of months, patiently waiting for a burst of creative energy...

...and that moment has arrived! No longer is it a bundle of fat quarters ( term for a specific size area of fabric, not referring to my rear!), but behold, 38 children's bibs, and 10 glasses/ pencil cases! All in time for Christmas markets....

The bibs are interfaced with a thick cotton to aid soaking up spills, and are fully reversible ( rear sides are co-ordinated in gingham or checks) and are 6.50€ each. The glasses cases are also nicely padded, close with a magnetic fastener and have a decorative button to finish ( naturally Cath Kidson as well!) There are just 10 glasses cases, all different, so for buying purposes I have laid them out in 2 rows of 5, let's number them 1-10, and I have photographed the set from all 3 sides to show the fabric variations. These are 8.50€ each. Worldwide postage possible.
Praise be to mother in laws! X

Christmas tree?

I've been busy getting things finished for all the up-coming Christmas markets, and stumbled across a vintage bottle drying rack at a local vide grenier. It cleaned up well, sprayed silver and is now filled to the brim with lavender filled keyrings and tassles, it looks almost like a mini Christmas tree. All I need now is a fairy for the top!
(Keyrings are 3€ each)
