There is nothing quite so lovely as natural linen when it is teamed with bright colours.

Indooroopilly Shopping Town, Brisbane.

Sewing Machine Cover

The scraps made great pincushions
Pattern in the book 'Scandinavian Stitches' Kajsa Wikman 

And needlecases
 My youngest nephew is starting kindy this year and he chose this 'Hungry Caterpiller' fabric for his sheets while we were holidaying at Hervey Bay

I am really pleased with how they turned out.
He has top & bottom sheets as well as pillowcase & drawstring carry bag

Fabric from 'Dewdrop Inn' Hervey Bay

For the name just print the desired font on a piece of A4 paper at the size you desire

Trace the outline
from the wrong side
so that it is mirror imaged

Trace this onto your vliesofix

The next Linen project I am going to make is a jacket in coral pink with cerise piping.
 Watch for my next blog at the end of January for pictures.
