A couple of weeks ago I received a suprise ‘thank you’ package from Heather in the form of some fat quarters of Pooches and Pickups!! This is Laurie Wisbrun’s new line for Robert Kaufman! I can’t tell you how excited I was. I’d seen lots of people in ‘blogland’ making lovely things with it but hadn’t got round to getting some for myself. So, Hooray for Heather!!! Today I had the urge to use some of it in a fun little project. I seem to be having a run of inspiration for little projects at the moment 🙂
I drew a pickup truck, kind of like the one in the fabric (‘kind of like’ as my drawing is not very good!) and then used the pooches and pickups for some raw edge applique.
Then I made an envelope back with the blue cotton fabric and turned it into a cute cushion 🙂 Now I just need to find someone with a small boy to appreciate it!
