Fun day Monday.

What a fab fun day Monday!!
Wipso and I cut curtains this morning ready for her to sew tomorrow.
Then we had delicious, home baked bread buns for lunch before T arrived for our crafting afternoon.
We made more pillow case dresses.
(See blog below)
Above is my latest.
Wipso - not satisfied with one pillowcase, came armed with 2 duvets, which she had purchased at a charity shop. She then proceeded to make 3 out of the 10 we had cut out!!!
T and I plodded on with our little efforts.
As T is a relative newcomer to sewing, I helped her with each process - what a lot of skills she picked up too....
  • attaching bias bindings
  • making bias tie straps
  • making a pocket
  • putting in elastic
  • using the overlocker
I think we should be running workshops Wipso!!!! We could even throw in a course on making Roman blinds too! lol

Thanks for a fab day.
Will you have room to blog all your ten little frocks???

Gorgeous dress! I'm having difficulty finding the 'destructions' for making these little dresses. It's such a great idea I'd like to at least try one - it would be nicely ironed though :)) Di xx
