Cushions and The Blanket



now for real: a peak into our new home. I actually finished these wood-cushions just before we moved. I had a feeling they would look good here, and it is always nice to see the images you have in mind become reality. it's very heavy cotton Ikea fabric, closed with large faux leather buttons. 
the polka dot cushion is a ready made one from Ikea as well.

also on the couch, the baby boy blanket in progress. I am nearly there. to be honest, I love this blanket so much that it will be hard for me to part with it. luckily I know it is going to a very good and loving home. the simpleness of this blanket, it's colors, the heavy and soft feel... I can highly recommend starting a similar project.

  1. Hello Maaike! Everything still looks beautiful around here - and congratulations on moving into a new place. I understand your pain with all the post-move admin. It always takes longer than you think it will. Gorgeous blanket - I'm not surprised you are already dreading giving it away! x x

  8. Het mooie boomstamstofje van Ikea waar ik zoveel leuks van wil maken, maar helaas geen naaimachine en naai ervaring.

    Ik volg je nu al een geruime tijd met veel plezier en heb je daarom genomineerd voor de Liebster Award, zie mijn blog voor meer informatie.
