Horace the Gargoyle and Cottage Makes

 Horace the Gargoyle has an important job.
 The hold the bag containing various bird foods.
A Great Tit came in onto the bedroom window sill one morning so I used the bird fabric at the top, and Mary Engelbreit  garden fabric for the rest of the outside.
I added a pocket to the inside just in case I want to use it when gardening in Spring. The pocket should be enough for seed packets.
There has also been this make from a vintage piece of Diary of an Edwardian Lady "Wild Flowers."
It covers the little practice amp, and goes with the curtains in the living room which also come from the Diary of an Edwardian Lady range.
Da dar! Finished with a plain cream lining and a green dotty binding. The main amp will get the same treatment when the odd metre of the same fabric I tracked down, arrives.

I am liking this going away from plastic bags in the cottage and trying to make it cosy and pretty for these colder months which we spend more indoors.


  1. Came to say hello, bad blogger, happy to see all your lovely work, xoxo

  2. You are making your new home very stylish with the fabric covers and bags!

  3. I absolutely adore the Edwardian Lady fabric. When the kids were little Beth was given a single duvet cover in that fabric and I have held it close just wondering what to do with it, never giving it up. I am sure one day I will think of something.
    It's a good feeling getting rid of all of the plastic bags, we also have very few here at home. I am just trying to find some suitable fabric to make some fruit and vege bags for when we go shopping so that we don't have to just the plastic bags they have.
