My parents are big tea fans so their tea cosy (left) has taken a bit of a battering over the years.
I decided to spruce it up with a layer of my 2CV fabric (below).
And here’s the revamped tea cosy, resplendent with its little cars!
For my latest foray into textile design and home sewing I made myself a cotton dress to wear to my dear friends’ June wedding in London.
As usual I had the fabric digitally printed by Woven Monkey in the UK having made a white, red and pale green version of one of my cockerel variations; as my dad once said I’ve certainly got a lot of mileage out of that cockerel!
I decided to finish the hems with red bias binding to match the cockscombs….
…and luckily enough found a pair of my favourite Fly London sandals in the exact same shade…
The dress stood up well to the festivities – just a couple of armhole stitches popped during the disco phase!
And the wedding was absolutley wonderful.
