New cake pattern! A simple, fresh pattern inspired by summer picnics and the cute little cafes around Clifton.
It’s new pattern time, and this time it’s in the form of this cute summery birdy print. My style is slightly evolving here at ELE and I’m constantly changing the way I design and construct my patterns. This one focuses much more on silhouettes rather than detailing but still works pretty well I think!
So today I was sifting through my fabric bag and found I had lots of leftover scraps of ELE pattern fabric that were really no use for anything, so I thought instead of throw them away why not make bunting?! Myself and the other half have recently moved into a new place that to cut a long story short needs a bit of tlc! So what better way to make a place feel like home than some cute bunting, lets just hope it’s not too girly for him!
My sewing machine was being annoying today so I hand stitched the lot, using string instead of ribbon as well, normally I wouldn’t spend this much time hand sewing as I hate it but I must admit it was quite relaxing.
I actually like the hand finished look as well. The overall result is pretty cute and has cleared space in my fabric bag so winning all round!
Yeah sorry about the photo quality, my camera didn’t want to play ball today either. Damm technology!
Hello everyone! now I know I’ve been away for a good while now, due to life getting in the way unfortunately! But I am back with a pattern that is slightly different to my usual designs as I’ve added words! This cute simple pattern is hand drawn and I think would look super cute as curtains or wallpaper for a studio!
At the moment I am currently working on a project for a competition, I’m not giving too much away as my entry isn’t finished and sent off yet! But I thought there was no harm in giving a sneak peak! So in true ELE fashion I have used repeat pattern, these are cute little food based patterns that were quick and easy to create! Stay tuned for more info on the competition in weeks to come!
