the smurfs are back!

I collected smurf figurines as a kid. So I was a little bit excited to find an original 1980's smurf duvet cover at Vinnies last week. Had absolutely no idea what I planned to do with it but I knew I had to make something. It was pretty gutting having to cut it up, but, needs must, and this is the result!
I had some fabulous yellow binding that was about a hundred years old (not far off!) so coupled with my smurf find I made some flags. How cute would they be in a boys room?! I personally think they work whatever age but I'll pop them in the shop as a new Kitty n' Kitsch nursery accessory.
I'm now on the hunt for some more of my childhood friends, Holly Hobbie, Strawberry Shortcake, Snoopy....oooh yeah, the list goes on.....
(in fact I just purchased some original Holly Hobbie fabric from eBay. watch this space!!)
