For awhile now these fabrics and red crochet trim have been grouped together just waiting for the right project. Every so often I'd rearrange them, waiting for that 'light bulb moment'.
Need is often my inspiration to make something new, and I needed a birthday present. This is the third present I've made this month - yes it's a bit like Christmas all over again.
Red is Brownyn's favourite colour. I know she's been admiring this fabric, as comments were made about not having it in her stash! I'm sure you know that feeling when a friend pulls out a piece of fabric to die for and no matter how hard you look, it's all gone. When this happens I have to comfort myself with the knowledge, there is another gorgeous piece of fabric just a purchase away and if I'm really lucky maybe a snippet of it will turn up in a gift.
