At the moment I am working on my House Sewing Box. Maybe you have seen my little sketch in one of the earlier posts. When I saw Cath Kidston's Town House Sewing Box on Tilly's blog I could not resist and immediately wanted to make me one on my own. I didn't think that it would be so much fun. It is not finished, yet, but I would like to show you a little sneak preview!
These are the exterior embellishments for the facade. I got some inspiration for the windows and the door from a book called 'Faciful Felties'. I tried to embroider them by hand and machine.
The apple tree is similar to the one on the original box. I added a dog and its kennel, a clothesline with cloths, many colorful flowers and some ivy, which I want to stick on the walls of my house.
But, of course, first of all I had to build the exterior. I didn't use nails, as my wood was too thin, so I used some wooden sticks and glued the whole exterior construction.
After that I glued red felt on the walls and bright beige felt (which I first embroidered with red stitches to give it some kind of wooden touch) on the roof. Maybe you can see the embroidery by clicking the photo.
I am looking forward to get it all together, soon. Unfortunately, that will still have to wait a little...too many ideas and not enough time!
