Just thought I’d show you the lovely fabrics I bought at Hickeys. I’m planning on making a few sleeves or caddies for a set of wooden kitchen utensils; wooden spoons and the like. The idea is to line and top cuff the vintage print with the pink spotty and add a hanging tab from the vintage print. Have been so busy today I haven’t even cut the pieces out though.
Think I should buy the utensils first to make sure the sleeve isn’t too long; want the tops of the utensils to sit proud (with their heads held high, madam). It’s the sort of gift I would like to receive. And, unless the utensils are made from reclaimed Indonesian floorboards, shouldn’t cost the earth, either.
A close up of the vintage print – it’s lovely.
