About Me

Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Fabric Book Project

Good Morning All

Welcome to my newest followers, Pat and Maarit, nice of you to join me, I hope you enjoy your visits.

This is the project I used the tray cloth on.

It is a Shabby Chic Fabric Book.

My very first attempt so abit wonky!!!!

I enjoyed doing it and will make more, Christmas gifts!!!!!!

The fabric under the try cloth is still the off cuts from a quilt cover I used to make cushion covers for the seat on a sofa.

The frill around the edge is from an underskirt that I also picked up in the charity shop for 20cents!!!

I covered a plastic ring in ribbon so that the book can be hung up.

I am still making stick pins and thought this would be a great idea for storing them.
Also, earrings can be hung from the lace.

I have decided to sew in some more plastic rings so that bracelets or necklaces can be hung on them.

I am going to take this with me to Loriens when I go in April, after she has had the baby. She is in hospital at present as baby is breech. This will be a gift for her to store her jewellery  in her bedroom, I hope!!!!
Pop over to see Jennings 644  on You Tube, she has some gorgeous  tutorials for all sorts of stuff.

  12. Hi Wendy
    Not heard of a fabric book before (Probably because I can't sew for toffee). Very pretty. Hope Lorien is ok.
