Woohooo, so this morning, took Rye to toddler group and then afterwards I picked up the sewing machine.
On the green parent forum I was asked what I wanted to make and I was a bit blank; but I've suddeenly started thinking; ohhh I could make a cover for the 4ft ottoman beanbag - something nice and colourful.. and for the large pouffe. Then there's the dining chairs. I could make nice colourful covers... and I really do want to have a go at making my own bunting - especially as Rye's birthday is in just over 3 months time. It would be great to learn how to make my own skirts too.
As a big lass I've tended to wear darker clothes.. but these days I've embraced those exceedingly goddessy curves and love bright colours. Perhaps I could even learn how to make simple tunics, as I am a fan of long tunics... then of course learning how to make things for Rye too.
One of the first things I will be doing, once I've become a bit more familiar with the machine, is sewing a lining into this crochet bag:
Oh my gosh, I've had a thought.... a cloak. Embrace the cliche :-)
