Well let’s start with the good news, I am currently temping at a legal media agency, so am no longer a burden on the state... now if only I could get a full time job, life would be perfect!
One of the lovely things about working in the West End was being able to nip into John Lewis to get some bargains in the sale and better still I was able to buy them with gift vouchers. And this is what I bought a metre of each of the fabrics below, which will be transformed into little outfits for girls together with some matching cottons
Here is one of the little dresses which I finished over the weekend. I love it because it brings together two of my favourite crafts, sewing and knitting. The bodice is knitted in cotton, using a moss stitch background and a cable stitch, delicately finished off with a picot edging and the dress is worked in cotton. These dresses are for 6 - 9 month olds but can be made up to fit a three year old.
And here is another dress which I will put together tonight... I love the grape colour of the cotton. So now that you have seen these, how about taking a look at Wendy’s Handmade Monday and see what everyone else has been up to?
I am going to pop them up on my Etsy shop, do hope that people like them.
And finally, I delivered the rag wreaths at the weekend and Sarah is thrilled with them, which is a big relief.
