I admit that this post is really just gratuitous showing off on my part but I’ve actually managed to complete a few projects recently and am very proud of them.
I started knitting a couple of years ago and learnt from a book. I am still totally shocked when I manage to create something and it looks like it did in the pattern picture. I am a little newer to the whole sewing thing, having restricted myself to curtains in the past. These are not as impressive as many people might think as they are basically rectangles of material, albeit large rectangles.
So, ladies and gentlemen (although I suspect mostly ladies) may I introduce my latest projects.
The bag and the pin cushion are from a great book I got for Christmas, Cath Kidston’s Sew, which has 40 projects to make. The bag material is included and already cut, so a bit of a cheat but I’m still stupidly pleased with the results. Likewise the teddy, as it is the first toy I’ve made and is for a friend’s new baby, who is not due until May, this will be the first time I’ve completed something for a newborn that I will actually be able to give when they are new born.
