We were sent a lovely charm pack from Robert Kaufman, some grey solid, cream solid and a little bit of trim. The challenge was to make something mostly using solids. It was a fun way to go out of my comfort zone as I usually use at least 20 prints per project. It made the process much faster and easier which was great!! Not a lot of thinking which can be half the battle for me. :)
I made a lovely table topper. Would you like to make one too? Here is what you'll need~
