Completed ‘honeymoon’ makes

The ‘honeymoon’ bed runner was hand placed and quilted from vintage upholstery fabric swatches, Laura Ashley scraps from the stash and a little modern gingham, embellished, as usual, using a collection of vintage mismatched buttons.

Also on the bed are a couple of cushions, crocheted from scraps of colour coordinating yarn.  Just a couple of giant granny squares, crocheted together to form the frill.

Then it was time for handmadebysoo to try a little ‘up-cycling’, adding a modern Laura Ashley hydrangea fabric cover to a vintage Lloyd Loom style linen box.  There was no need to do anything to the original paint finish.  Even the braiding was saved and re-used.

And finally, it was time for a little fun!

Referring to an old favourite pattern for knitted cats (http://betsy.imagin-itis.net/fibrcraft/kitten.html) handmadebysoo knitted these three woolly kittens as a finishing touch to amuse the honeymoon couple.
