My beautiful Bernina has been whirring away today as I appreciate my last day to sew for the next two weeks. I was hoping on making two bags for my shop, but at this rate it may only be one and a half. I found this beautiful vintage fabric about a week ago, the sort of find that makes me truly appreciate pre-loved cloth, so it was cut up almost immediately to make bags. I suspect I may keep one of these for myself.
In between bags a skirt for Mia, who is a true girl with her love of dresses and skirts – she will go weeks avoiding trousers, I don’t know where we would be without stockings in this cold weather. I used the idea mentioned on tiny happy of cutting the top off a large t-shirt and then simply adding some elastic for the top after ironing over the waistband. I have made Mia one of these before and she just loves them, I think she thinks of them as Dancing Skirts. Have a lovely weekend everyone x
