All things on a theme

red bitsOn occasion things get made in order for a particular reason, all along the same theme or style. Usually I try and come up with a consistent set of colours, text and the overall style of the project first, or sometimes I make the first item as use it as the inspiration for the rest.

Pinterest has been an very useful addition to this sort of thing, as had my boxes of ribbons, buttons, scraps, and embellishments. It’s sourced from mixed bulk purchases of beads, buttons salvaged from old clothes, ribbons from gift wrapping, charity shops, inherited sewing boxes and left overs from previous projects. And now also mostly contained into boxes and tubs and some IKEA Billy bookcases in our living room.
