Little Gifts Made to Order

Some special people I am closely related to by birth were offered the chance to pick out a fabric - ANY fabric - and chose a small item to be made for them. They recognised this for the unique opportunity it was, as I typically have quite a - how shall I say this? - hands-off approach to my fabric :)


Our budding chef asked for a pot-holder from lemon fabric with asparagus on the back, which I bound with blueberries. If we get hungry enough waiting for the food to be ready, I reckon we can eat the pot-holder...


Someone was totally swayed by this gorgeous fabric and wanted a slim scarf, to which I added a rose pin...


And a pencil case out of the perfect fabric for someone who loves art AND the environment. Plus some ribbon detailing too!


It feels good to start and finish projects the same week - not usual for me at all! Here's to a fruitful week ahead!

Linking up with Fabric Tuesday , Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Live a Colorful Life!

What great little projects, all of them! I love letting my kids pick their own fabrics from my stash, I'm always amazed (and usually pretty impressed) by what they come up with.

Nice job. :D And -hehe- I know what you mean about the "hands off" feeling.
