Fabric Friday – Field of Daisies

IMG_3356

This Friday I wanted to share one of my favourite fabrics in my collection with you. Another Swedish fabric from Åhléns and I just love it’s simplicity. It always looks great on big and small projects. I think what attracted me to this fabric was the contrasting colours of the green and red.

Åhléns, like I said before is a great place to buy Scandinavian fabric, though their online store does not do them justice. So if you are ever visiting Sweden I would definitely recommend finding a store and checking their fabric section out.

I have been recently taken with the nautical/seaside trend and fancied creating some hanging sewn fishy friends to decorate my flat with.

So yesterday in fact I made this pretty fish from my Scandinavian daisy fabric and I think it works really well.

A while ago, using a decorative house design from Kajsa Wikman’s fabulous book Scandinavian Stitches, I created this little house.

In addition this little ellie now has a pretty appliqué ear.

I have lots of this fabric left to use on many fifferent crafty projects to come and I am sure I will treat you to a picture or two.

Happy stitching!
