Happy Friday! I am so excited to finally share a big secret project I’ve been working on in the studio. A few weeks ago Sew Mama Sew gave me the opportunity to sew with a new fabric line called Whip It Up from Ink & Arrow Fabrics as part of a kitchen sewing challenge. I’ve been showing little hints on IG on what I’ve been working on but today you get to see it all!
Aren’t these patterns and colors the cutest?! Once I had the fabric in my hands I kept thinking of retro-vintage kitchen decor. The blends of black, white, orange, yellow, and aqua are casual and fun. There are salt and pepper shakers, utensils, phrases with kitchen instruments, and more. So after sketching and getting ideas I went decided to create a simple tea and biscuit setting.
My vintage teapot has it’s own built in warmer. In between the trivet I added a layer of insul-fleece that holds the warmth from the teapot. Half circles budding open around the sides create a little lilypad!
What is a tea without a biscuit or other sweet treat? I used Insul-Fleece again to make this simple fabric box. It is literally a large square that has the sides pinched and sewn. I’ve seen versions of this with ties twisted on top, but I stitched about 1 1/2″ down from top to secure.
And the scones? Oh yeah, these have been a treat in our house for years. We usually add chocolate chips, but you can easily add other things as well. I did not create this recipe, but if you want to try it out here it is: Petite Vanilla Scones . I have even substituted vanilla yogurt for the sour cream with great results!
The mug rug came last to sew up. It’s about 10″ x 12″ finished and has enough room for a cup and saucer, napkin and a scone! The tea bag and tab accent was made using wonder under and hand stitching the string. Now I’m all done and ready to enjoy some quiet scones and tea before the kiddos come home!
