Following on from yesterday, I had not done any sewing on the day, but had chosen what I was going to make. Hippo on Parade from Jodie Carleton's Creative Cards was my choice. I made my hippo this morning using a pure wool skirt from the op shop for the hippo.
I really like him! Jodie has a wonderful range of the most delightful softies to make. Her pattern pieces are just beautifully presented and instructions are exceptional. Love her work. I cannot wait to see the girls stuff finished.
I had forgotten today was our sewing day, so what a surprise I had when they all came! Just lovely! Here they are making a purse.
Tilli was especially sociable today too, talking her head off and asking everyone for attention at some point, even walking on the table between the machines. Not at all worried that there were a couple of girls she had not met before, Lovely!
Threading the machine.
putting the pieces of the purse together.
Ta Da! Finished purses. Very clever girls. I can show their faces as they are all adults on facebook!
Softies started. We ran out of time, they stayed as long as they possibly could, Good indication of fun! These are the patterns they are using.
link here where I have written about them before.
I am looking forward to seeing the finished products. (they will e-mail me pictures). These they have made for themselves and they will make some for me for my charities too.
I can honestly say I am looking forward to our next meeting in a fortnights time.
Thank you girls!
