Summertime Sunshine and Cardigans

Summertime Sunshine and Cardigans

When we think of summer, we think of the outdoors, blue skys, longer days, vibrant flowers in full bloom and picnics. Surrounding ourselves with bright, cheerful colourful fabrics can put you in the right spirit.

Tula Pink is a brand that comes to mind instantly, as well as others, that make you think of the Summertime. (The Tula Pink fabric shown below are all 100% cotton). If you look closely at this fabric, you may be pleasantly surprised by what you see, especially the fabric shown below on the bottom right.

It’s a busy time with the kids still on their school holidays, there’s some tidying up you want to do but you don’t know where to start. Country Home and Crafts have ornate patterned/decorative boxes that come in packs of three (each a different size and design). Great for tidying up paperwork and odds and ends and look great placed anywhere in your home.

Or…if you feel like doing something a bit more crafty, you could revamp a plain cardboard box (such as a shoebox) by covering it in self adhesive patterned fabric sheets. The self-adhesive patterned fabric sheets come in packs of 3, each roll has a different design. They are an A3 size so they'd also be useful for covering books and folders.
