My Mister Domestic Project Party Make

By August 28, 2019October 6th, 2019blog

Wow, this Project Party has been going ‘off’! So many amazing things being made by everyone! (And keep reading for a giveaway!)

Mathew, aka @misterdomestic, invited some smaller businesses / people to be involved in the launch of his new Catch & Release fabric line for Art Gallery Fabrics and I was lucky enough to be chosen!

There are some gorgeous fabrics in the collection, so much so I bought a FQ Bundle as well as the fabrics that Mathew had sent me!

So here is what I made!

One of my Flowering Charms cushions with five of the beautiful blue prints. The background fabric is AGF Pure Elements called Icy Mint and I couldn’t do anything else but quilt ‘water with bubbles’ as the quilting design!

(oh and that cutsie yellow FISH button was just sitting in my button stash waiting for just.this.moment!)

Whilst I was making the cushion top, I saw a post on Instagram of the Woven Stars Variation pattern by Wefty Needle…. fabric weaving that showed this amazing star pattern! I had resisted doing any fabric weaving up to that point, but that pattern had me in!

I did some practicing, and then I modified the pattern to make one really BIG star… and voila…. the backing for the Flowering Charms cushion was created!

(and I am now totally hooked on fabric weaving too!!)

And, because I am an overachiever… I also made one of the 9 flower versions of the Flowering Charms pattern

For this cushion I used the Paddle Rows print as a simple backing.

The photo shoot took place next to a little Winter’s Creek that runs through the farm behind our house…. Hawthorn trees fringe the creek and at the spot I chose, the creek widens out and there is a lovely grassy spot under the trees. Very picturesque! I did of course have to wait about 2 weeks for the sun to shine here (still winter here!).

And I took a little video of the running creek and the little spot I was doing the photo shoot on ๐Ÿ™‚

I had to lug two huge bags of props and the cushions over a fence, through a couple of gates, walk through the other part of our Winter’s Creek and through some mud… the things we do for a good photo!!! (and yes, they are some boxes holding up the cushions to ‘just’ the right angle!!)

Thanks for reading this far! We have a giveaway to help celebrate! [PLEASE NOTE THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED and Jo Matthews @misskenny from Instagram won!]

You can win a copy of my Flowering Charms cushion pattern and some Catch & Release fabric to make it!

I have included 5″ squares of 9 of the fabrics from Catch & Release, some Icy Mint AGF Pure Elements solid for the background, Mirage Blue AGF Pure Elements solid for the back (and binding) of the cushion and a zip and some buttons! This is enough to make either the 9 flower or 5 flower version of my Flowering Charms cushion!
