Scrappy Beach Huts

Hello and a big welcome to all of my new followers! I have had such fun browsing your wonderful blogs and have loved picking up ideas from you all or just stopping to go 'Wow or oooooh' every now and again.

Just a quickie today, beach huts made from scraps of fabric. What I like the most about this picture is the colour combination.You know the feeling you get when you play around with colours and then suddenly you just think 'Yeah'.

I framed it using a frame from those wonderful people at Ikea, it seemed to set it off quite nicely. Now I just have to think about where I'm going to hang it.

 Happy crafting.


  1. I love them, I think we should all have a beach hut in our lives, I have a shed in the garden and I keep threatening to paint it stripy.

  3. Hi Caroline, I love your beach huts, they're brilliant. They look great in the frame too. I really must find the time to have a go to. My new darning foot is a bit redundant at the moment. Can't wait to see your next project. Lesley x

  4. Where to hang it - how about in my house?!!! It's another beauty Caroline. Vx

  5. Thank you ladies. Jan couldn't agree more, you can't beat a beach hut and I think it's a great idea for your shed. Gill I love your 'new shop' had a browse last night, I don't see how it can fail. Lesley thank you and yes find time I'd love to see what you're going to conjure up. Vicky thank you for your lovely comment I'll have to do another one.

  6. Hi Caroline,
    I absolutely love the beach huts, anything to do with the sea is a winner with me as I can see it from my windows. I really like all the hut fabric choices and the sandy coloured background is perfect. Have a nice weekend.x

  7. They look lovely - what a good idea!
