I was planning what I was going to make with those beautiful soft silks and wasn't really aware of how weird I looked :)
I think my grim bus journey back to Glasgow after the Retreat may have influenced me slightly when I was dreaming about what I would make. Let's just say that a lady was asked to leave the coach before we even left the bus station because of her grumpy, abusive behaviour, and about half an hour into my painfully uncomfortable journey, the man who was wedging me up against the window was asked by the conductor to stop eating the food out of his plastic container "You're stinking out the whole coach, mate!"
I decided to make myself a little luxury travel kit :)
I used almost all of those gorgeous silks (including the strip that tied the bundle together) to make a little travel size pillow, an eyemask, a tiny lavender cushion, and an infinity scarf to keep my neck cozy :) The pillow has a little pocket to store the eyemask and the lavender cushion.
I used a baby-sized pillow from Ikea, and some leftover flannel from backing a quilt to make the back of the scarf, and line the inside of the pillow and eyemask. The whole kit is soft, silky, cozy and I hope will make even the most horrendous journey (or camping trip!) a little bit more luxurious :)
Thankyou so much again to the lovely ladies from Liberty for being so generous with their beautiful fabric!
Once I finished making my Kit, I kept up the Liberty love and used the kit I bought from Elizabeth and Diane at the Fat Quarterly Retreat, and made this necklace. What a great little project!
Hope you're all having a great day!
