When Life Gives You Lemons.

Or rather when a friend shares with you some of the latest range of Tilda Lemon Tree Collection, then you just want to do them proud and make something lovely and usable. 

I wanted to make something functional and practical for my home and what better than a couple of items for the kitchen.

Using a beautiful piece of gifted feed sack fabric I used an assortment of fabric pieces to add a bright and cheery  band to the bottom of the kitchen towel and then a couple of applique lemons above.

Using the left-overs I had enough to make a pot mat/holder with some using Insul-Brite for the batting. They are going to look great hanging on the oven door. 

Once I knew what I was going to make the rest was quite simple and easy to put together and I am thinking of making a few more sets to add to the gift box.

Here are a couple of tutorials from Pinterest.

Get this one here.

And these delightful houses by Kerryanne can be found here.

and of course a tutorial from Jenny who gifted me the fabric.

Can't wait to see what she is making from her selection of fabric!

Keep creating.
