hooray for keeping scraps of fabric!

Friday again already, it’s the weekend! I have the second cushion cover to show you, this one is a heathery/aubergine colour. The third one is a lovely leaf green, but I must admit I haven’t started that one yet, I need a moment of calm where I can sit down and choose fabrics. This one is going to be listed in my etsy shop shortly. I had some fun last night making something for Holly, we are all going to a party tomorrow and her hair is getting a little bit too long to look its best (ok, she needs a haircut! I’ve done her fringe but don’t dare tackle the rest) She has decided what dress she would like to wear, so then I suggested that we put her hair up, the outcome is that I need to whip up a pair of hair bands to match this dress! I’ve not made anything like this before but had a vague idea in my head of what they could look like. We don’t have any time to go shopping so we had a look through my fabric stash and found some tshirt material in two shades of pink, and I managed to find an old white tshirt that I could add to it too. This is the prototype I came up with last night, it’s a bit wonky but Holly loved it when she saw it this morning, hooray! So tonight the plan is to make two more, ready for tomorrow. What are your plans for the weekend? : )

That's sweet! I'm in awe of your talents! Being able to just whip something up like that when needed certainly is a handy skill to have!
