The same is true of the solid I've used for the other half of the cover. It's a very vivid teal with bright orange perle cotton embroidery.
This close-up of the embroidery is slightly closer to the actual colour but is still a bit bleached.
I used loops of orange ribbon for the fastenings at the sides. They just need to be wrapped around the button on each side to hold in place. I used clashing red buttons as that seems to be the way I'm rolling at the moment :)
Here it is all folded up and waiting for the second project to be completed(read started!)
The second item will have to wait a few days as I have to pull my finger out and make something for Yvonne's birthday (this Sunday!). I'm making a crafting apron for her, that much is no secret as I asked her what she would like. You'll have to wait until after Sunday to see that though... so there's no risk of peeking :) Catch you soon x
