Actually this is a double bill as I never published what I made in May. This was a gift for Mother’s Day which was on 3rd June in France and I know my mum reads this blog, so I didn’t want to spoil the surprise.
My mum’s gift was a gardener apron as seen on Sew, Mama, Sew. I made it with taupe and purple flowery fabric, it worked quite well. So well that I did a second one for me with beige and red/pink stripy fabric. This is an easy project made out of two fat quarters. I made the pockets a bit smaller for mine as I plan to use it for my sewing stuff.
Kids pillow cases
In June I made some pillow cases for my kids. This is the kind of object I would like to sell in my shop but I didn’t have a clue of how to make it. So I made two basic ones from scratch, but I’m sure one could find good tutorials for this. The stripy one is for my daughter, it is made with a decor fabric from P Kaufmann. The second one for my son features a cheeky alien head made out of orange felt.
