I had used the crochet corner to corner method of making Ariel in the middle and had always planned on making the other princesses to make a full blanket. Turns out I hate doing the corner to corner method. I fins it very messy having all those bobbins and threads everywhere. I found some rather cute Little Mermaid fabric and decided to just make this into a cushion. Again this turned out rather wonky but still pretty overall.
So utterly wonky and I was really not happy with it but when I look at it from a distance then it’s not to bad haha!
I really should have made this a little larger but didn’t have quite enough fabric to do so, but it’ll do a turn. Unicorn fabric rocks.
A few years ago I bought this sewing kit at a craft show and took one look at the instructions and stuffed it firmly back in the cupboard. Having recently brought out the sewing machine I finally decided to just give it a go, and hey presto it all turned out OK, and it even has inside pockets!!
Labyrinth is a childhood favourite movie of mine so when I turned up to a sewing class with Say It Ain’t Sew in Glasgow to find this pattern to hand stitch I just knew it was for me.
I knew this cover kit would go nicely in the office, I especially liked the candy stripe hanging.
Stitched this up on a sunny day in the garden and it’s now hanging in my mother-in-laws kitchen.
I dusted off the scary sewing machine and in full determination to win the battle I stitched up a dog collar bandana in navy spotted fabric. Below is some pictures of our model Buddy.
Well it comes and goes here in Scotland, but we have had some very sunny days recently. Here’s hoping I don’t jinx it!
