art. house. mum.
I had some fabric left over from making the stretched fabric artwork for tickle the imagination. It was too lovely to not use (duck over now and have a quick look at Thea and Sami's unique range of hand printed eco-friendly fabrics). And my house is always in need of more order or places to hide the chaos. So finally I got to it and made these.
You don't really need pattern for these... it is as simple as it should be... just like making a paper box... and then adding a top of binding to hide the edge (of course you could make them lined and hide your inside seams as well, but the Thea and Sami linen had enough body to look good without the extra effort).
And then there are the linen tea towels which were donated to my stash a good few months ago. Not as sturdy, but still a nice way to hide a bit of mess.
So go on you, see what bits of lovely fabric you haven't had the heart to throw out... why not make something that's useful, pretty, cheap, and easy peasy to sew...
