A truly beautiful Minxy mix of charm, inspiration, practical advice, and pretty projects to simplify and beautify your life and home. - Jane Brocket, The Gentle Art of Domesticity
What have you been up to this Anzac Day long weekend (apart from the dawn service, of course)? We’ve enjoyed a few long, lazy meals with friends, and in my spare time I’ve been working on this big sewing project which I’ve finally completed.
About a month ago my friend Colette got married, and I promised to make her a duvet cover using fabric she’d chosen (one of the projects inside The Crafty Minx). Last weekend we went on a shopping expedition to find most of the material above – Colette’s favourite was the Amy Butler roses print below, which I’m also loving.
To match the duvet cover I edged two pillowcases with the roses and some paisley for Kendall.
I do hope they like it – the green’s for Kendall, and the pink is to match their antique bedroom fireplace (panelled with dark pink tiles). There’s no tricksy zips or buttonholes to add, either – I made ties instead, which do up into pretty bows at the foot of the bed…
And it’s all wrapped up & waiting on their doorstep, for when they arrive home this evening.
