London fabric...

As soon as I saw this "London" fabric I wanted to make something with it,

so out come the sewing things and scissors and I was off!!

There was just enough to make 4 cushion covers for the chairs in the kitchen and I backed them in a red gingham which goes with the soldiers, boats

and busses which just happen to have "Cath Kidston" on the side

now all I need is for Mr Lucey to paint the wall a pale blue and I'll be happy (I think)

I made sure I had enough left over for a bag, well why not?

I sort of rushed it and had a mishap stitching the handle on it, Mr Lucey said "looks like you made yourself a nosebag" haha very funny.

I love these little bags they're so quick and easy to make and have just enough room for your purse, keys and other bits us ladies like to carry around with us.

The sewing machine has been put away and the pasting table is coming out, as I bought some wallpaper when I went to Harrogate but more on that next time.

Thank you to everyone for the anniversary wishes, you're all so kind,

Love Lucey

HI Lucey

You are so clever, I could probably manage the cushions but it would take me ages. Love the bag.

Hugs RosieP x

WOW....you are so clever....your London cushions and bag look fantastic. Because I live only 20minutes away from London, I guess I wouldn't look for London faric but maybe Paris !!!!
Thank you so much for your comment. It was lovely to hear from you.
Enjoy the rest of the week. XXXX

Love that London fabric. The chair cushions look lovely, as well as the pretty bag. Wish I had your talent for making them. ;)
