Show & Tell -recent makes

Thank you for all your lovely comments regarding the Send A Little Love Swap, it would seem that you all enjoyed it and some of you would like it to become a yearly swap, which sounds good to me! I shall put a reminder in my diary for next year.

This post is a little show and tell of some of my recent makes.

Those of you with children especially teenage ones will know that they frequently ask for last minute gifts for friends and recently Rachel gave me, erm let me see about 6 hours notice that she needed a gift for one of her friends who was turning 18. The only brief I was given was that she liked turquoise so this is what I came up with.

I used some gorgeous glittery silver fabric for the numbers and some silver grey ric-rac.

I also added a little embroidered heart on the back.

Hopefully the birthday girl liked it.

This next make is definitely the longest bunting I have ever made. The whole alphabet!!

The bunting was for a brother and sister so needed to incorporate blues and pinks. I started with the stripe fabric and co ordinated the fabrics from there.

I manage to add some buttons too.

It was hard to photograph as it was so long but it looks fabulous in its new home!

    The bunting is lovely, perhaps with me just having the youngest boy at home I'm not asked to make any last minute gifts!
