WIP Wednesday

A while ago my friend Jan from Sew Surprising made herself a gorgeous wall hanging of a cupboard with plates and cups etc. Really lovely!! and then I also wanted one.....

So I got busy designing a cupboard with plates and dishes - paper pieced - but of course and this is my finished design...



The whole thing measures 52 x 76"
 
 Now I need to go and find some fabric that will make the wood of the cupboard stand out... maybe also a few 'fussy cut' pieces for jars and so on...





I can also divide it into 2 halves and only do the top if needs be...













The bottom of my cupboard has doors with glass, so I can even change up the background colour for that half.....







Let me know what you think....


Thanks for stopping by!

that's quite a project, janeen! best wishes on it. getting the fussy cut pieces for your jars and plates will be fun, i bet.

Yvonne said...

oh Janeen, this looks just wonderful.I think it is a brilliant design. I like that is a bit messy. In dutch I would call it "speels", maybe you understand that? It will look wonderful when it is finished.

Susan said...

I like it. Great idea, but sure looks like a lot of work. I don't think it is a beginner project.:-)

Sew Surprising said...

I love this and can see its one I would relish doing, if your looking for woodgrain fabric Joel Dewberry has an amazing line :)
