Butterfly & Greedy Fox


I haven't posted much lately so I feel as if I need to catch up by posting lots of stuff in a few days! As you have probably noticed, I am a rather sporadic blogger & crafter! I tend to craft, flickr or blog only when the mood strikes...

This was my inspiration for the following shabby chic butterfly potholder. A vintage bedsheet, super yummy striped linen from Japan and linen rickrack from Finland :o)

My friend claimed ownership of the butterfly as soon as she saw it sitting on my side table! There are two others that will hopefully make it into my shop!



Here it is in its natural habitat...


This is what I brought home after a visit to Dressew in downtown Vancouver. The entire bottom floor is trims, buttons & other notions!

Hey Fox... Those are MINE!


I think he's in heaven... I know I am :o)

Wow, your butterfly is great. I love the idea and how you did it. I wish I could sew like that.

Now that is just about the neatest potholder I've ever seen, Lurraine! I'll be watching for one in your Esty shop!
Cheers!

So beautiful your butterfly! I have your book with the pattern. I will make one with your instructions and I will show it to have your opinion, o?
The things you have brought are lovely! I am full for buttons, ribbons and fabrics!
Good inspirations for you!

I love your choice of fabric and trims for the potholder, Laurraine. You have a great eye for "putting things together"!!

That fox of yours certainly looks like he's in paradise...careful he doesn't take off with your goodies!

So glad you're back again - I've been missing all of your gorgeous creations. Please call next time you go to Dressew and I'll meet you! (although, it looks like you've got enough trim to last a few weeks now - teehee).
