A Galaxy Of Swirly Onyx

#34. For my bloggy-pal Ms Carpet.

She went slightly mad at Ikea recently and bought quite a bit of fabric for some super-creative home improvement projects.

I asked if she would like me to make her a piece of The Empress Dowager's New Jewels to match her new lampshade and draft stopper from her leftover scraps of Cilla Ramnek's crazy-swirly Saralisa fabric and she said, "Yes."

When we met up for drinks a few weeks ago, she brought me not off-cuts but at least a metre! And that was after she was done with her own DIY projects. Told you she went a little mad at Ikea. Haha.

Anyway, here it is. Her Galaxy of Swirly Onyx. Now she can wear it out together with her lampshade as a hat and her draft stopper a a belt.

And the generous Ms Carpet has decided that she wants me to keep the rest of the fabric! Thank you, sweets!

So keep your eyes peeled for new pieces in this loopy graphic print. Of course they will not be exactly like Ms Carpet's necklace because no two pieces of The Empress Dowager's New Jewels will ever look the same, remember?

Edit-to-add: See the "jewels" on their new mistress here.
