Sometimes, I'm super lucky, and am able to have a little play with some new fabric a few weeks before it hits the shelves. You may remember last year I designed the Flutter By Butterfly quilt, using gorgeous fabrics from Melly & Me.
Just when I thought Melly couldn't possibly design anything cuter than the Snug as a Bug fabric range, she's come up with Sweet Home, and it couldn't be cuter!
I'd had an idea for a "Princess and the Pea Playset" rattling around in my brain for a while, and once I saw the Sweet Home range, I knew it was just perfect.
Of course the set includes a beautiful Princess.....
and a fat, green pea
Who, as the fairytale tells us, is secretly placed between the Princess's mattresses.
This playset also comes with a pattern for a draw-string bag, so that all the pieces can be kept safe until little hands want to play again.
Once I'd completed the playset, I wasn't quite ready to finish playing with the Sweet Home fabric, so I designed this creative card - a sweet little pincushion.
