Something a little different today... a tea towel transformed!
Admittedly it is a very pretty tea towel from Ikea.
The tea towels come in a pack of two from Ikea and are called EVALILL - the details are here.
(I love the Ikea names for things - Mitchell has a chair called JEFF!)
Anyway, I espied these tea towels on one of my shopping trips some months ago
and thought they were way too nice to wipe the dishes.
I chose to make them into a cosmetic bag/iPad case.
The little loop already in place works brilliantly to secure it shut with a button -
in fact I glued one button on top of another to make sure it was thick enough.
The pièce de résistance in my opinion, is the decoration including that butterfly.
To create the pink and white flower just cut the flower twice and roll the colours together.
Stop by tomorrow - I should have the full printed instructions plus a further item I made that complements this one...
Big thanks for all your kind words yesterday and especially to Gemma who gave
some brilliant advice regarding Bella's ear medicine - really useful, thank you.
Take care friends.
