The sewing is continuing apace. Yesterday I tackled something ambitious. I used some more Fabric Rehab fabric to make a simple skirt for my friend’s daughter. I used the instructions for the Simple Skirt from Dana Made it – that lady knows how to explain things clearly with no fuss. In just over an hour I had made this gem. I know it’s a summer fabric so I made it slightly large in the hope it will still fit her then, though I admit I know little about how fast 2 year olds grow. It was hard to choose the fabric but the Hedgehoglets were so incredibly cute, I really hope our little hoglet likes it!
I had some pieces left from the week’s sewing so I made (another) notebook cover for a colleague who’s been really good to me this year during my ill health. This one turned out really well, and surely everyone who works on a nature reserve would like these little guys?
