Working On Something New ...

Hello my dear friends,

it feels like I haven't tried to create something new in what is seems some time now so when I found two pieces of tea stained fabric I was on the hunt for a new idea to use them in.
I love the embroidered edge and the fraying of these.

I had used this fabric in my primitive creations some years ago and must have placed the last two pieces ( I think these are the last two? ..) in my linen chest and forgot about them.

 I was thinking about a new creation using this fabric and it had to be something where I didn't cut the pieces in any way but used them as they were. I think I have managed to do so in the end using a combination of drop cloth, a vintage bits and pieces and of course not to forget crinkled seam binding.


I am not quite finished just yet but I should be very soon and then I will share my newest creation with you. So ... if you would like to see what I have made, do come back and visit me here at Todolwen very soon again.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.


  1. Dyeing fabric with tea gives a wonderfull vintage colour. I´m looking forward, what it will be.

  2. OK you've really peaked my curiosity Karen, looking forward to it!
