What with one thing and another, I’ve been pretty busy this last week with less time than usual for creative pursuits. Having said, that I have made a start on two new projects that I mentioned in my last post. First up, I have chosen fabric and started cutting out and sewing the apron for my mother in law:
The pink fabric will be used to make the waist ties, pockets and binding. I think it will be quite pretty in a retro sort of stylee.
I am gathering supplies to make a doll from “We Make Dolls”. Opinion was divided between whether I should make Supergirl or Fleur. I have gone for Fleur in the first instance simply because she is easier (no arms and legs ). I’ve cut out the main body and head pieces, and am pretty pleased with the colour combo:
Waif, too, is making a start on a new sewing project. He is making an owl stuffie this time around. It’s a lot bigger than the penguin he made, which he was able to complete in one sitting, so he is learning the art of patiently doing a little each day:
Sewing is a great exercise in learning patience, I find.
