I recently did a 1980's themed swap and this is what I made my partner in USA who has received it in the post. I really wanted to make something using genuine fabric from that era but having nothing suitable I found several on ebay and put bids in . I lost the first three but managed to get this French material which was from the 1980's being confirmed by the printing on the selevedge when it arrived. So what to make. I hummed and arrrr'd but in the end decided to make a vintage desk writing set and included a fold down tray similar to the one I made for Bernie.
I edged this tray with hand made twisted cord and placed the button/ribbon fixings on the end instead of the sides. Pencil pot is trimed with single cord bow.
I completed the set with a writing paper box and cut and bound matching coloured paper to go inside. I again edged the box lid with whipped twine.
I would like to enter into the following challenges.
Dream Valley: They are asking for Buttons on any project.
Top Tip Tuesday: Asking for 2 or more ribbons/twine/lace/fabric.
I have used 2 different ribbons and made two diffrent twines.
