I wanted to make something special today, and I decided that I would need to make my own fabric for that too - so I grabbed my bleach spray and started to experiment with it on fabric. Apart from the fumes, it was all good fun - and I was happy with the outcome.
I wanted to create a sea feel, a wavy feel and a little droplet feeling to it. The picture itself explains why... as a child I always enjoyed searching the beach for starfish, and treasured them at home - such beautiful creatures. I didn't really know by then, that they were dead, but it probably would have killed the magic for me...
And when I found this quote the other day, I had to stitch this picture straight away. Couldn't wait for the kids to go to bed and get started. Took 2 hours to make (this includes the fabric design)... so not that bad really! I am getting fast at this now too - a piece a day, I am finding it so hard to keep up with blogging, facebooking, instagramming and what not... this social media is killing me at times :D
I am going to the beach on Saturday - 2 weeks in Italy... hope to catch up then with my blogging!!
