I am always on the hunt for things associated with the guinea fowl, if I am not actually hunting for their eggs!
- Guinea fowl eggs!
- Guinea fowl meat.
- Guinea fowl recipes.
- Guinea fowl sounds!
- Guinea fowl info.
- Guinea fowl books.
- Guinea fowl art.
- Guinea fowl blogs.
It was on one hunt for all things guinea fowl that I found some fantastic guinea fowl fabric.
I found the fabric on the Sew2Speak website, where the author Ruth had used fabric with a guinea fowl design to make postcards as part of her class. Ruth’s article was very helpful as it explained exactly where the fabric came from. The fabric is from the African Fabric Shop. I was so inspired by Ruth’s postcard and the African fabric, even though I am not an experienced seamstress, that I quickly contacted the African Fabric Shop to purchase some of their fabric.
Here is a picture of the lovely guinea fowl fabric.
I am now the proud owner of 1/2 a metre of this bright and cheery electric blue guinea fowl fabric.
My initial thoughts were that I could make a cushion but now that I have the material I think fabric, washable placemats and coasters would be more suitable and original! As I am not an expert seamstress, I will let you know how I get on, but it could take some time, so watch this space!
