In the Pink.

I hand delivered this to Fluff at the weekend so it is safe to reveal. The cry went up from Devon recently "Please can I have a cover for my brand new netbook. Can it be in pink felt with felt yellow/pink die cut flowers o'h and I nearly forgot buttons for the centres please Mummy. "


So here it is tucked up nice and snug.! I looked on the web for a design with a zip closure but couldn't find one so devised my own . I have taken loads of pics whilst making and will try my hand at posting up a tutorial on how to make one for yourself. (will blog later on in the month) I used some woollen check material for the lining from my stash that Mum in Law gave me (40 yrs ago along with the silk samples).


There are lots of parcels out in the post at the moment so as soon as I know they have arrived I will have more items to share with you.


I am entering this into the following challenge


C.R.A.F.T challenge who are asking for fancy floral.

  1. How lucky is Fluff?! I love the inside lining, Mrs. A. - very crafty and neat and smooth for the item. I love the fabric and the beautiful flowers. And you made the pattern yourself? Wow, that's sensational. I'll be looking for the tute!

  2. What a lovely Mum you are Mrs A! It looks great, and so soft and tactile too and the flowers are lovely.

    I too will be interested in seeing your tutorial.
