Camper Van Dreams........

Hello there, welcome to my creative space today......
Please excuse the mess, I've been a little busy.

I've been busy snipping, stitching, crocheting and having coffee with friends which is why I haven't finished this Camper Van cushion, BUT
I'm sure you'll get the picture...

Take some woollen blanketing, yarn, felt and thread...

Snip, stitch and crochet...

Use your machine and 'write' something.......

Add some polka dot fabric to make a happy string of bunting....♥♥♥

Hmmm, just realised as I looked at this pic that I need to add a little more stitchy detail to the camper van before I sew up the side seams!!

And there you almost have it, one Camper Van cushion!

Well, it will be shortly...

Before I plug the sewing machine in I'm heading over here to see what everyone else has been up to.

Thanks for popping by, so glad you could visit and 'hello' to all my new followers......

Wishing you all a creative day,

Claire ❀❀❀

  2. That is fabulous! Everything about it is just perfect - the fabric is lovely and that bunting!!! Just wish I could go free embroidery on my machine (is that what you have done?). I can't work out how to drop the foot.

  3. What a beautiful cushion! Love the bunting at the top and all the details!! Great job!

  18. VERY cute!! I think I feel a project coming on...

  19. oh, it is just delightful!! I need to get me a new machine that I can free sew with, mine is just too clunky and doesn't flow, I can't even do a circle with any ease!

  20. Oh yes still have me baffled at how you do you machine writing xxxxx

  21. CUTE!! I love the bright red crocheted edge you added to this one!

  22. Super Claire - I love love love your camper van and the bunting is too adorable. Have a lovely weekend. Liz xx

  23. beautiful claire!!!everything you make is perfect!!!!have a lovely weekend.. xxx

  24. Oh. My. Goodness!! I bloomin' LOVE this cushion (or soon-to-be cushion)....full of character and I adore the colours. Your 'writing' is amazing... I had a few attemps on my machine long ago but I found it SO difficult, even just simple shapes, etc. I also got put off when my embroidery hoop wouldn't easily fit under my needle and I had to actually un-screw the foot attatchment off whenever I wanted to move my work :( very annoying!
    But I waffle on sorry, just wanted to say... Love this cushion. Lots :)
