Bluebirds On Roses by Elea Lutz

One of my favourite fabric designers Elea Lutz has a new collection out and it's sweet as can be. Flowers, strawberries, bluebirds - and a lovely mix of blues, pinks, reds, and yellow. Sweetness indeed!

I made two projects with these fabrics. The first is an 'Ultimate Pincushion' - the pattern for which is in my book Zakka Home. This is a large pincushion at 6" square - I designed it extra big like that as I was tired of having a multitude of pincushions on my desk, for all the different types of pins I use (regular pins, fine patchwork pins, long quilting pins, decorative pins..)

The pattern in the book has a patchwork design for the pincushion top - I decided to leave out the patchwork so I could showcase this beautiful blue floral fabric. Isn't it lovely?

I also made a bag with a drawstring cover, which I will be using for my crochet WIPs. We've had a sweet little addition to our family recently - a ragdoll kitten called 'Sugar'. We are all absolutely smitten with her! She is a clever little minx, and boy does she love my yarn! I needed something to keep my crochet safe from those cute little fluffy paws.

I did not use a pattern for my bag - I kind of winged it as I went. But there is a good tutorial here to make a very similar one. My bag is a slightly bigger size.

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I made with Bluebirds on Roses by Elea Lutz for Riley Blake Designs - this collection is now available in stores worldwide. Tomorrow I will run a giveaway for a bundle of these fabrics on my Instagram feed - keep an eye out if you would like to enter!
