Downton Abbey Fabrics are here and the ideas are flowing, it's just getting the time...
So far I have made a clam purse - all for myself (for once), this was the first time I had made a clam shell, following a guide I managed to put it together, although sewing all the final pieces together was tricky once they started to curve.
Clam Shell Purse
|The finished clam shell|
|I used the main Downton Abbey themed fabric for the centre|
|I used Lady Edith themed fabric on the outside, mostly the fabrics styled on her are light colours including peach and greens.|
My next project... a Downton Abbey Quilted Cushion Cover
|I have gone for shades of blue and green for this one, there's a mixture of fabrics based on Lady Mary, Edith and Sybil|
The fabrics all have lovely designs and colours, I want to get a few more of The Dowagers fabrics which are much darker, purples and black patterns.
So my decision to 'use what craft items I have already got' is going out the window, I now have new ideas which require purchasing new craft bits...think I must have a clear out!!
