A Little Beachy
We have just returned from a very relaxing week camping in our new caravan at the beach. We sold our previous caravan and bought a new one in Autumn last year so this was our inaugural summer holiday in our new caravan.
In order to inject a little personality into an otherwise beige environment, I dug through my stash and came up with some beachy colourful remnants of fabric to make some holiday inspired cushion covers.
The blue linen was a piece that I bought to make one of my boys some curtains and stitched stripes of natural wool to add texture. After hanging my sample I quickly changed my mind and a large piece of this fabric was tossed into the cupboard for future use. The beige linen backing was a sample that I had previously ear marked for cushions for the house. All of the other fabrics are remnants from various projects.
The first cushion was actually inspired by a similar one I had seen on the internet (source unknown) but the second cushion was copied off the shape of our actual caravan with a little bunting thrown in for good measure. I did have a wee smile when I arrived at our holiday spot to find an actual caravan site decorated with a very similar bunting!
I am very happy with how these two turned out and did have plans for a third in an equally summery design but the demands of Christmas got in the way. Maybe this can be my project for next summer!
