|Hands free transport for Bear and Rudolf|
I recently bought a copy of Oliver and S Little Things to Sew - mainly because I'd seen finished projects from it cropping up all over the place in blogland, and knew it had a nice hat pattern in it that would come in handy for summer holidays.
|I'd recommend this book to new sewers and more experienced ones - |
nice things to make for young children, and clear and easy to follow instructions
So I made one reversible bucket hat...
|Unexpected sewing related bonus of having three children? |
You increase your chances of the hat you've made fitting one of them!
...before my older two daughters got hold of the book and spotted a picture of a little girl with her teddy in a sling.
The conversation went something like this:
"Mummy, you're really good at making things"
"Will you make us one of these?"
"Er, okay then"
Last night I got together with some friends for a sewing night and catch up, and took a bag full of things to make the carriers. Knowing
life would not be worth living if I finished one at a time the girls would be excited to have their carriers at the same time as each other, I tried to make them in parallel, factory style.
Flagging, I left the ladies to it, and took my three almost finished carriers home with me. And so, never one to resist the lure of an almost finished project - and a sewing machine still sitting out on the side from where I'd left it after coming home - I quickly did the last bits while the girls finished up their breakfast this morning.
