We had another beautiful half sunny/half cloudy winter day today. Did I garden? No. Go for a walk? No. Stay inside and sew all day? Well, yes actually.
Most of the attraction for me in making stuff is the wonderful fabric I can use, and because I am so fabric-oriented, some fabrics can get boring to me, very quickly. So I finally cut some new boxes for socks(es) out of new fabric I bought the other week. The elephants are supremely cute. I may have to get more fabric and make a box for myself. The toys one has very unisex vintage sheeting as the lining, so this is suitable for boys. These are in the shop now.
I made the flower brooch from yesterday's post, but it was a massive fail. Only because I used the wrong fabric and the wrong thread, mind you. If I'd actually had some cotton lawn and upholstery thread we would have been cooking with gas. I was thrilled to have an excuse to my hot glue gun for the first time in ages. Gosh, I lead an exciting life, don't I?
I'm going to design my own, I think. Something a little flatter and a lot less petally.
Is petally a word? It totally should be.
