Poorly twin slept right through the night (in a cinnamon and menthol coma) and woke up raring to get back to school - so the flipside was, I got to go and help again, dashing my plans of shouting "Are you OK?" periodically from my sewing machine for the day.
I was tasked with supervising the making of paper chains, and in true 5 year olds' Christmas style, easier said than done, and the less said the better!
So having posted parcels to New Zealand and Brighton, I dashed round Tesco (alone!), and was left with a whole hour to play before pick up time.
I pulled out the next-in-line from my zippy pouch pile; it didn't start too good...
But I managed to get this for one of the girls, finished just in time...
The sun was so low it was hard to capture the true colours, especially the Kona something-or-other lining, but I expect you all know the Heather Ross FFAIII guitars.
The zipper ends were not as perfect as my last attempt, too bulky, but fine nonetheless.
For those that have asked, I always refer to Kat's tutorial when making up these zippy pouches, purely now for the order to layer the fabric/zip - priceless xxx
Hubby did his bit, helping out at Beavers this evening, and I have just ironed more school polo shirts than I care to remember.
Now for another evening of teacher-related Christmas makes, with a little Kirstie's Handmade Christmas and CSI for balance...
