The sewing machine is packed up and taken to Solva, Pembrokeshire every year where I endeavour to complete many of the unfinished projects that clutter my sewing room.
This year, however, I side tracked and started on some new projects, one of which was this lovely wrap.
I found an image of it on the internet and then found that I could buy the pattern from Cool Crafting
I bought the wool fabric from Lee Mills Fabrics in Swansea – the last metre – how lucky am I?
And the lining and buttons were sourced at the Autumn Malvern Quilt show.
The other project that I started whislt I was away was a Christmas table decoration.
And I compeleted it today at our Cutting Edge members day.
Not sure whether to use it to make the table sparkle or whether to wear it as a sun shade! Who knows…..
Next stop fabric printing and dyeing – watch this space!
