Today I want to share just a couple of my handmade items with you. The first one is one of my most favorite pillows I’ve ever made, created using laminated fabric. The other 2 items are the most recent camera straps I’ve created.
Isn’t this fabric just adorable? I’ve had it in my stash for awhile. I bought it because I loved it and just couldn’t leave it there. I didn’t know what I would do with it but I knew I had to have it in my stash for when inspiration struck. This fabric is laminated. The lamination gives it a waterproof surface like oilcloth but it is soft and easier to work with than oilcloth. This stuff is designer cottons that have been treated with a lamination. It never cracks like oilcloth can and you can iron it from the wrong side because the wrong side is the cotton – the lamination is only on the right side.
Mid-January I started creating some new things and decided to turn this fabric into a pillow. I’ve never made the laminated fabric into a pillow but isn’t it great for on a porch?! I’m thinking if it doesn’t sell soon I may just keep it!
The camera straps are made from a vintage grain sack. The stripes are a lavender/brown color. The tags I used to embellish them are new but vintage inspired. I bought several packs of these cute tags at Sew to Speak a few years ago and have had them in my stash just waiting on the perfect things to use them on.
All three of these items are in my etsy shop
