Excuse me for bringing this up but am I allowed to mention there are 75 days to go? I know we haven't even reached the 25th October yet but quite frankly something's started to happen here that's completely baffling me ... it's called 'organisation'. Never before (it's normally a mad panic with only days to go), and I may of course be speaking too soon but these are the fruits of my labours these past few days, which I'm thinking will end up as gifts for teachers. Maybe!
I cut one of my husband's old tee shirts into strips and wound them round a wooden hanger. I then used this perfect vintage French rosebud fabric to make a cover a la Cath K. I love it so much and am definitely planning to do some more, although I will tweak the instructions a little bit next time. I think the ends need a bit of careful shaping to make them neater but aside from that, it works a treat.
And some more pouches to get the practice in. For these I cut into the vintage stash, finding some good, sturdy fabrics, and lined them with plain thick cream linen.
Yes, I am supposed to be doing other things but we're allowed the odd indulgence aren't we?
So tell me, have you started anything yet?
