Sometimes I find fabric that is just too fun to pass up. Sadly, it will sit in the stack until I find a project fitting for it. I might move it around my office. Pull it out a couple of times. Eventually, I get around to it because it is just as cute as can be and deserves to be stitched into a piece of work.
Last year this Michael Miller Gnomeville fabric came out. A quick order of the lot in half yards guaranteed this charming fabric would soon join my stash. I spent more than six month enjoying it in its folded state before it demanded to be worked with.
Patchwork and gathering. Rick rack and trims.
Here's what I came up with.
There is not a room in my house that this will match. It is just pure fun.
The fabric on the back is a panel that depicts the gnome town.
There are laundry lines, toadstool houses, gnomes riding bees (so cute) and loads more.
A quick envelope closure on the back for washing. Finished with rick rack for the edging.
On another note...Happy Harris of Happy Loves Rosie stopped by to help me out with a little blog updating. I am sure there will be more. I am one of those people who is never done. Anyway, Happy was a dream to work with and has a stunning blog as well.
I do hope that you all enjoy the changes and updates...I am loving the images.
