If you haven't found it already you really should head on over to the Sew Mama Sew site and take a look at all the wonderful projects and inspiration.
Yesterday they posted a tutorial by Vicki which was so pretty. I decided to have a go and make one for my hubby for Valentines Day for his morning cuppa! I didn't have much time so I didn't do the patchwork, however I reckon it would have been quicker than the hand stitching of the letters, which I rarely do! I opted for denim and red gingham, hopefuly that is manly enough! The denim was leftover from my daughter's jeans that I turned into a ra-ra skirt.
Thanks for looking, let me know what you think, with a link to your blog - I'd love to come and take a look at your blog too (I'm nosy like that!!). Have a great day.
