I have been having a cushion dilemma. I have 3 children who love to throw them around the loungeroom, stack them in piles and use them as their toys. As a consequence of all this lovin' the cushions I made years ago are looking dodgy to say the least. I have so many ideas for beautiful, pretty and not so practicle ones but am thinking that may have to wait. For now I'm going for durable but cool. This is the first one made from............you guessed it, an old calico bag that was used for dog cubes! I LOVE it, love the colours, the diagonal stripes on the side and the vintage/country look of it. AND I love that it came from Aunty Aggie's old farm house.
Hi. I'm Mandy and this is my little slice of life where I share my family life and my creative pursuits.
BOB & MABEL is the result of a creative itch that resurfaced after too many years ignored. After studying Fine Art and working as an Art/Photography/Welfare teacher I followed the path to motherhood. Since having No.3 I started playing with the growing mountains of vintage fabric and BOB & MABEL arrived!
