You might recall that I have a passion for these African prints or wax prints:
I’ve been hoarding many yards of the fabrics and hesitating to cut into them. I made one dress last year, and the famous Giraftan, both of which I ended up liking very much.
A large scale project was what I needed to put some of these huge prints to good use. This is a simple envelope-style cover where you slide the comforter in, flip the top over, and button it closed.

I made a few pillows too.
This cacophony of color might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but my home décor has been taking a more “global” turn the last few years, with carved masks, woven wall hangings, and a jungle of house plants. I like how these colors and patterns add to the aesthetic (if you can call it that LOL).
That was a big accomplishment.
Still, somehow, after working non-stop for three days, I still have a big stack of projects to do!
