I HOPE THAT WE CAN FIX ALL THAT WE'VE DONE
Right then...I sincerely hope that someone...anyone..can see this blog! After changing Internet providers, I tried to alter the email addy in Blogger settings - all without the aid of a safety net or large gin!! So, fingers crossed...here's hoping :-)
Bunting making is like buses - you don't make any for ages then three come along at once! These are for a friend to give to twin girls. The ribbons have been sewn on, now it's time to part with some buttons...
These two photos make me happy - sad, huh?!
I loved this combo of fabrics so much last week, that I'm using up the leftovers to make a craft tote...I am so mean when it comes to fabric, cutting really carefully to ensure maximum output per metre! There was JUST enough to get all the pieces needed. That yellow paper has my calculations from when I first worked out the pattern - I daren't lose it now!
A bird's eye view down into the construction - it always amazes me how backwards bag making is! How you have to do pockets and embellishments first and the actual putting the bag together is the very last thing. That took me a while to get my head around and also how the fabric is usually inside out and back to front! Scary stuff :-)
The nearly finished article! See, I still get things wrong - should have sewn the buttons on the pockets before attaching them. I can still do it now, but it won't be as easy. Doh!
I'm ploughing through my granny squares to make a blanket for Crochet for Kidneys. Just another 18 to do!! It keeps me out of mischief, doing these...cough.... Why are you laughing? Are you insinuating something? I can be good, I CAN.
Ok, you're right, I can't! Full of mischief and getting worse each day. Wahoo - it's like a switch went off in my head after turning 50. Grin. Watch out world.....yeah!
