Following my recent post where I launched my Hearts version… I’m so excited to say that I have now finished a Stars alternative of my Bespoke School Uniform Keepsake Cushion for school leavers. This version may be more suited to boys uniform.
I’m feeling quite emotional as my youngest daughter is about to finish primary school. It feels like the end of an era! I’m not ready to have two children at big school!
I really wanted to sew something very special To mark the occasion. Something that she could always keep and treasure forever…
I love the finished design of her lovely Keepsake Cushion with her school uniform fabrics and I’m already working on a Stars version more suitable for boys uniform – watch this space!
I’m so excited to add my new range of Foldaway Shopping Bags to Dotty Owl! These are really unique as they feature a plain white appliqué heart where you (or the children/grandchildren) can use the non-toxic fabric pens provided in the pack to get creative. They make great gifts! Click here for lots of lovely pictures and to find out more!
I’ve been busy at Dotty Owl designing and stitching my new range of Glasses Cases! They make lovely gifts as you can choose to have a pack with 3 ‘kid safe’/non toxic fabric pens… the kids can get creative and the result is a lovely unique design – they make fab gifts! I have also used some new UV colour changing fabric which I’m so excited about! Check out all the lovely styles here.
I’ve just made another Pleated Zippered Pouch as a Mother’s Day gift. I wanted to sew something special to show off this beautiful antique flower brooch purchased from Susibelle. This lovely antique shop is based in the Vintage Look, in the beautiful town of Henley on Thames.
I love the colour combination and the recipient was thrilled with it! More information and pictures (lots of alternative styles too!) here.
Hooray for another Pleated Zippered Pouch! – I love this fabric soooo much! This was another end of term teacher gift… I couldn’t resist adding a Swarovski heart button for extra sparkle!
I hope you like it. More information (and previous versions) here.
I sewed these cushions for end of term teacher gifts. They can be personalised with children’s special artwork – or anything else you would like added! The other cushion shown here was a gift and I added the photograph of the sheep to the heart.
