A while ago, I made bedroom curtains and cushions for her....
and as I had a little of the fabric left over, this was my starting point.
A fabric storage pot for a bedside table but it needed a friend and something to sit on.
I don't think your can ever go wrong with wicker and as my friend is a language teacher I thought these little bits would be the perfect combination for her bedside table.
But then how to wrap it all? I must admit I did huff and puff on this one. In the end I used a tip from my Stampin' up chum. Wallpaper lining paper! Yes you did hear me correctly not the most inspiring thing in the whole world but when you stamp, or roll in this case, an inked image onto it, it comes to life. So that's my topical tip for the day! I always keep a couple of rolls it's like brown parcel paper, so versatile. So about half an hour and 3 metres of linen thread later.....
....... her gifts were all packed and ready to go and thankfully she seemed quite pleased :)
Had a glorious evening last night with the TV all to myself I decided to have my own little 'Downton Abbey' fest and catch up on all those recorded episodes I had not seen, the problem is ever since I saw the skit that Victoria Wood did for comic relief, I can't quite take it as seriously as I used to.
Now I'm actually going out to celebrate another friend's birthday tonight who specifically requested "a fabric picture of beach huts please", when I asked her what she would like. So I'll share that one with you next week until then have a great weekend x
