A trip to Ikea

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

I thought I'd share a couple of the bargains to be found in Ikea.  I took a trip there yesterday and had heaps of fun.

Once a year I always pick up some of their lovely linen. 150cm wide and only $12.99 a metre
There are often some lovely fabrics suitable for quilt backings at $6.99 - $7.99
And their duck down cushion inserts are a bargain.
And of course I always enjoy one of the warm cinnamon scrolls to give me energy to shop...yum yum
I've fallen in love with these Hexie Log Cabin Pot Holders.
Many thanks to Caroline from Sew Can She for sharing her design with us in a great tutorial.  Please follow this LINK for the pattern.

Hope you have time for some sewing today
