Retro Fabric Style

Thought I'd use this fabulous turquoise floral retro fabric to create a cushion. I combined it with a 50's red rose design and a Sanderson print...One of my favourite colour combinations. 

The back.
It's such a lovely print for summer, I thought it would make a cheerful little hand bag ...
so that's what I made next!
Lovely vintage button to fasten...
and lined inside with a classic Sanderson fabric.

Another wonderful summery textile is this flowery print by Bevis, called 'Bunbury'...
which I used to make a pair of cushions, perfect for a deckchair or garden bench.

I made a shoulder bag too - Ideal for trips to the beach...

And a peg bag to cheer up wash day!
(In my shop as from this Thursday.)

    1. Thanks Pam - a slight departure for me - but I love these fabrics for summer.
      The cot at the shop is an old 50's one made in Wales!
