Attractive Handmade Decorations for the Home

A spot of customisation

Today was day 1 of a child free house and it feels so quiet – no friends door knocking, the dull sound of electronics and TV’s in the background, the clank of lego being tipped out, the bickering…..,requests for endless food and drink – I actually miss those sounds! even though they drove me mad.

Jack went back yesterday and Toby had his first secondary school day today and boy was he excited – despite the early start to walk to the bus, not relying on me to remember things, learning how to do a tie! and not returning till 4.30 each day.  We took a photograph of him in exactly the same spot as we did when he first went to school 7 years ago – how time flies.

I’m really looking forward to his return and the success of accomplishing so many ‘firsts’

Anyway, with the onset of chilly mornings, I thought I would customise an old denim jacket.  I’ve had it the best part of a decade and really wanted to jazz it up a little.

I sewed a CK patch I’ve had for a while on the arm

and with some Liberty print bias binding I then sewed this around the cuffs.

and then round the bottom edge

I’m pretty pleased with the overall look and has given my old jacket a new lease of life.

Have a great weekend!
