London, United K...
My friend Laura moved into a new flat so I wanted to make her a present for her new abode. Nice idea, pity it took me about 6 weeks because I’m so easily distracted, and couldn’t figure out how to sew up the ends – I did it by hand in the end and it actually turned out rather neat, which surprised me :)
Still, they have turned out quite well and she loves them, so that’s good!
They’re reversible, and made out of bits of fabric, sequins and stretchy lace from my stash. The Chinese-y print fabric is from an old stretchy dress that I no longer wear but just had to keep the fabric because it’s so cute.
