This week's project is a sweet little picture frame, designed by Ayumi of Pink Penguin fame. I really love reading Ayumi's blog and admire her work, so decided I would have a go at making the frame.
It called for very thin chipboard that I reckon must be something else in the UK, not sure our chipboard is available in such thin sheets.
So, I used a thinnish, corrugated cardboard. I chose a selection of pink scraps for the patchwork.
Once the cardboard pieces were cut to size, and the patchwork made, it all came together reasonably fast.
Once finished, I wasn't convinced I'd do it again, but a friend called in today and thought it would make a lovely companion gift with a baby quilt, and of course, she's right, you could use up scraps from the quilt and have a co-ordinating set.
Just after that, I showed it to my daughter and was surprised at how much she liked it, so much so, she immediately claimed it for Ava's room!! Result.
I did actually intend stamping on the bottom of the frame (with ink, not my feet), but it has left the building rather quicker than I imagined...........
Vintage photograph will be replaced with something a little more up to date.
