Organic Textile Company and got on with it. There were some other firsts in this project, I had never made my own paper pattern before, never done an invisible zip (even had to buy a new foot for my machine) and never knew I had a good overlock stitch on my machine!
Here are a few more pictures
I have also been altering wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses. These are for two different weddings which just happen to be on the same day! I can't show any pictures yet as that would give secrets away.
I also got an order last week for a car seat inner to make with a newborn headrest, the fabric has been purchased and as soon as it arrives I shall be getting on with another job. It was very funny seeing my children's faces when I walked into the house with an empty baby car seat, my daughter especially thought I might have something to tell them - lol. These are the fabrics that have been chosen, I shall be using a combination of them to make a couple of sets
this one is a lovely cotton
this one a cotton/bamboo mix
and this one a single cotton jersey the same as that used for the clergy top
Other crafty news this week, we had our second church cafe, the Beacon this week and I got lots and lots of interest in the crafts I had on offer. The take home craft was sun catcher making
These will be squares that any one can pick up and do a few rows of, eventually I intend to crochet them together to make a blanket for one of the charities that our church supports. As you can see a few people got involved and lots were very enthusiastic about it.
I have also finally got round to properly blocking these two cardigans, the first one is for a 3 - 6 month old and is crocheted from my own design with fairtrade cotton, the second is a small newborn knitted with fairtrade cotton.
And today I have finished off with a bit of hooky. I have finally finished six sets of these lovely little rainbow birds ready for my next craft fair, £2.00 each or 5 for £8.00 - a bargain!!!!
