On the hunt for special materials I came across this yummy
striped heavy cotton and one with post-stamps, put the two together and voila...
I liked it so much and wanted more... so the next day I went back to the store
only to find out, a few hours ago a lady bought the whole lot.
I never learn!
I did buy the remaining 7 yards of this world-map material.
It has a lot of pink in it...
So I made bolsters, a lot of them...
pillows and cushions.
I love the stamps...
This is my favorite pillow 80cm.x 38cm.
I squeezed all the stuffing of a pillow to one side and
stitched it in the length so it became long, narrow
and super stuffed.
What else could I make with this yummy material...
Bags! of course, just the way I like it, a long strap so I can wear it across my shoulder.
This was the first one and I lined it with heavy padded material.
I added a bit of lace on the sides,
but it is too heavy and stiff.
Lastly, I always misplace my glasses and mobile phone,
I hope you have a lovely weekend.
