Le Challenge #22 - WOOD


It's been over two years since the start of le challenge. Nat and I have made projects for every theme during that time and, even if it was a little late, we always make something to show you in the post where you link up your finishes. I'm impressed with us. 

Life can get in the way though and Nat will be skipping this month because she and her littlest have been poorly. She's doing better now and will be back in the game for the next challenge :)

So here's what I made:

knock knock... {fabric inspiration}


We hope you've been getting on with your projects for the theme 'wood' but here's some ideas to help spark some creativity...


head Into The Woods with fabric by Lella Boutique


or be inspired by stories set in the woods, like these gorgeous patterns: 



this growth chart has a great woodland theme


you could be more literally and use wood patterns as inspiration: 


or even woodcuts


or you could be inspired by beach wood, like this Driftwood pattern


and the possibilities for creating things literally made of wood are endless!!

I have to admit to not starting yet (ekkk!) but there's still one week to go until the link opens and I have an idea brewing.

Pop back on the 15th of May to link up your finished projects based on the theme 'wood' and a random winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop :)

If you are new round these woods then please head here to read the what we're all about and the 'rules'.

How is everyone getting on? Any more ideas you'd like to add leave a comment!

Naturally a new theme...


Let's go for a walk down to the woods, a bright example of this month's theme

We hope you won't be stumped by this month's theme:


Definitely not the most obvious theme but we are hoping you will really push your creativity with this one! There are many ways to incorporate the theme WOOD (my childish self is giggling) and to actually use wood as a material obviously.
