July Reveal - Mollie Makes 42

Hot off the press today, Mollie Makes 42 and I can reveal my latest craft tutorial is featured.

It's a vintage caravan, plushie / cushion tutorial! Some of you know my like for the humble vintage caravan which turned into a fabric design, well that was the starting point for creating these cushions.

It has been in the making for many weeks and I've been keeping hush hush as requested by Mollie Makes until publication day, phew that was difficult!

I've spent quite a few hours burning the midnight oil with this one although it was somewhat less painful than the Nutcracker man tutorial which dragged on for months in the cold weather working times.

I'm really delighted with how this has come out and it should be pretty easy to follow and make if you fancy a go. 

After I had made my sample caravans I waited for some fine weather to trundle around Scarborough and Bridlington to take some lifestyle photos of them.

The caravans below were shot at the beach huts in Brid and these particular cushions are for sale in my Folksy shop along with some new colour caravan fabric.

Just a couple of final shots using my favourite charity shop pink chair.

I think I've done caravans to death now!!
