I’ve had my eye on these little house shelves for some time now, and have been planning to customise them with pretty fabrics. You can pick them up on Ebay quite easily and I’ve been excited to get around to doing them! πŸ™‚ I painted the houses white a couple of weeks ago, and yesterday I began working on the really fun bit – selecting and sticking in the fabric. These little houses are perfect for storing little trinkets, and I picked fabrics with small prints so that you can see enough pattern in the back. Continue reading…

I’ve been wanting to make a quilt for so long now – I follow so many people on Instagram who are brilliant quilters, and Tom’s Aunt makes amazing ones too so I’m surrounded by inspiration! Our dear friends Luci and Simon are expecting their first baby in just a few weeks, so I decided that I’d have a go at making them a special quilt.
