home - making

ambika, my little sister and the other half of this blog is taking a break from here as she needs to study for her book keeping qualification and has an exam very soon. so hello, it's me again...

inspired by this and this i used some old lace doilies to decorate a curtain that covers our balcony door. and i'm really pleased at how it turned out.

i also made this simple envelope cushion cover with some gorgeous poppy fabric that was given to me by my mother in law. i think it may be a laura ashley design.

i added a strip of denim fabric from one of j's old pair of jeans to make it look a bit more modern, and backed it in a grey colour.

still lots more that i want/need to make for our home. but i'm slowly getting there.
