Last week I was very excited to receive a gift from Dear Stella Design – a gorgeous bundle of Rae Ritche’s latest fabric collection Dreamscape! Dreamscape was released in September and builds on Rae’s previous gorgeous collection Moon Garden. It features soft tones of navy, purple and cream – making the collection perfect for so many projects (especially when you see that the collection features sweet mama elephants and their babies, galloping horses and an elegant floral design).
I think the collection would be especially perfect for a handmade gift for expectant parents!
So I decided to make a gift for my friend who will be having her third baby and her first girl. I adore pink pretty prints however she does not. So when I showed her the collection she fell in love with the pops of navy and purple. And the soon to be big brothers adored the cute elephants!
I decided to make her a few cushions for the nursery. I used the pattern from Kerri Horsely’s book Lovely Little Patchwork. I have made this pattern before and knew it would work perfectly as I really wanted to showcase the elephant print (and the 5 inch square centre would be ideal).
I separated the bundle into the light and dark tones and was amazed at how different the two cushions looked. It was a real lesson in the impact colour and print placement can have on your project!
Hopefully I have inspired you to create and if you adore Dreamscape as much as I do ask for it at your local or online fabric store.
