As I am sure all you Mums will know already, tomorrow is World Book Day, so as is customary round these parts, all the children will be going to school dressed as book characters. Last year I created the Where's Wally extraordinaire, for dear son, this year he wants to be Dumbledore.
So out came the Nativity outfit, perfect robes eh, and this morning I made some accessories to match, hat, hair and beard...
The fitting went down well, I just have to tweak Meg and Mog in the morning!
I did do some proper sewing too - one large (10"x 57"currently) block that I will show you on Friday, and I also started on my March Brit Bee block(s).
As soon as I found out it was kitchen-related paper-piecing, I bagsied Kerry's teapot from Fat Quarterly 8; so this morning all full of bravado I made one!
|Ceri is this OK?|
FYI I foundation pieced this, but used freezer paper templates to cut the fabric - best of both worlds I reckon, in my oh so vast experience!
So now I have no fear; however getting an idea onto paper and working out how to go about dividing that up is still some way in the distance, but I am still rather chuffed.
Oh, and I am pleased to say my Mouthy Stitches pouch arrived with its owner safe and sound today, one less thing to worry about x
