My cherubs have been busy creating gifts for their grandparents using fabric markers. They had a fabulous time creating pictures to use on apron pockets and they’ve drawn pictures to use on home-made baubles too. I’ve used duck cloth to sew the aprons using pattern pieces and instructions from Home Sewn Home which I borrowed from my local library. It’s a really useful book full of great ideas and simple instructions for things to make around the home. Me thinks I might borrow it again!
Not to be left out Toddler O. (formerly known as Baby O.) sat on my lap at the machine for much of the sewing action, and when he wasn’t on my lap he was under the sewing table playing with buttons and pins… and generally creating chaos.
Thanks to Dada Dave who helped out by modelling the finished aprons.
Today I hope to finish sewing the baubles and then it is off to the post office to get these gifts in the post, and with that there’ll be a great sense of relief that one more task is ticked off the list.
