Last week I made the trip into my local fabric store to stock up on some spare bobbins. That’s all. No fabric, I told myself. No patterns. And I didn’t buy any fabric or patterns. But, and it’s only a little but, I did buy this adorable panel, (yes I know it’s like fabric but it’s not fabric).
It’s a screen print on some natural linen. I couldn’t go past him. His name is Pipsqueak. And believe it or not he’s made by two ladies who live in my town! How cool!
Originally my thought was to make a small cushion with him and back it in denim and have red pom poms round the edge but then I googled Cat and Vee and saw this in their flickr stream and I decided there and then to totally rip their idea off.
It’s Missy’s birthday on Friday and she’s having a puppy party, (so fortuitous). I looked for some fabrics in my scraps that would go with her quilt that I made her two years ago. No wait, 3 years ago!!!
I made her some bunting during the week to hang at her party and as my friend Sarah says it makes “everything look so festive and fun”. I decided to put some on the back and I think I’ll embroider a Happy Birthday. I used some natural linen from the stash which has quite a loose weave. If you look at it it crushes but I like its texture.
I can’t believe my baby is turning 6.
