This weeks makes..
I'm getting back into my usual routine and am spending at least part of every day behind my sewing machine - yay!
This weeks makes have included a gift for a tiny new baby born ten weeks too early. I made it from the softest minky chenille and girly floral fabrics but am convinced that its going to be much bigger than she is. I've had the idea in my head for a while and managed to put it together in an evening. There are things that I'm definitely going to change for next time though.
I also managed to put together another idea that has been floating around in my head for a while - a cat collar!! our cats regularly come back home minus their collars and I really begrudge paying €7 or so for a collar that I don't really like. A month or so ago I ordered a whole batch of safety clasps and so when Mr Marmalade (guess which cat the children named..!) came home sans collar last night, it was a perfect time to put ideas into practice - and this is the result :
I am ridiculously pleased with it, though next time will do a double thickness of ribbon to make it a bit sturdier.
And here's a picture of the fat man himself wearing it!
This week I have also struggled with and given up on 'the dress that nightmares are made from'....
Will show you more next time!
