Sew Many Ideas
Say hello to Stanley.........or as he's been rechristened in our house 'Bob'. If you are familiar with Cath Kidston then you'll almost certainly recognise him. I got the template from my Make It book full of Cath Kidston projects. I'd already cut him out ready to sew before my knee operation so all I had to do was put him together. I chose a duck egg blue linen background to show him off and for the back of my cushion which I made as a super simple envelope type I used some red gingham. I suppose I should have used some spot print fabric or some of the cute mini stanley fabric......... After I'd finished him I wished I'd given him a jaunty neckerchief a la 'Dangerous Dave' - maybe next time. This little project has kickstarted a couple of sewing projects which I hope to share over the next few weeks. I feel inspired to make an apron after visiting the Anthropologie website there are so many to choose from I want them all and they have such wonderful names.
