This week has all been about Party Prep and a little Patchwork.
My first completed project of the week was this Pinwheel cushion, which I gave you a sneeky peek of HERE.
Japanese Sevenberry fabrics, the prints are so pretty and it has to be said, very Liberty-ish, don't you think? It was only after I completed the cushion that I realised that the centre pinwheel had gone slightly array....grrrr why didn't I notice and even more annoying, why did I have to put it right in the middle!!! Oh well....deep breath, I know it really doesn't matter in the bigger scheme of things!!
Poppy's party preparations have been going well. It has to be said, I did get slightly carried away making felt bows, I'm going to pop one in each of the party bags and use the remainder as little prizes for some of the party games. All that I need to do with these now, is to glue them to some ribbon covered alligator clips and then they'll be finished.
I also made Poppy a party rosette, a bit of annual tradition and for each of the party goers, a little 'Bitty Bloom' flower brooch. My tutorial and templates for the brooches is HERE and to make Poppy's rosette, I stitched the Bitty Bloom to a circle of fabric and felt and added an extra sprinkling of buttons, ribbons and lace. Next job, to sew a party dress, but more of that next time.
Continuing on with the P theme and to finish, I discovered this the other evening after Jamie had gone to bed.....can you tell that he loves planes.....
Poppy meanwhile, has been practising being a pretty Pixie (check out the Pyjamas underneath!)
They do make me smile!
