That ‘all sewn out’ feeling is starting to disappear 😉
I delivered the stoles (see my last post) to my friend and I think it’s fair to say that she was very pleased with them. This same friend has just moved house so my hubby and I visited her family today and took another little hand crafted something to welcome them into their new home.
I made this a little while ago and had it stashed away ready for when the move happened.
The embroidery design is a freebie by Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly and can be found here. I love the designs Bronwyn creates – such a talented lady.
Now, what do you do when your student son comes home from university with his favourite jacket looking like this?
I suppose I did what most Mums would do and I took him shopping for a new one but we searched high and low for a suitable summer weight jacket and struggled to find any. Why oh why do shops not stock summer jackets in summer? It is a mystery!
So I decided to do a bit of frugal stitching. I checked the sleeve length and cut off the jacket’s cuffs, then I carefully turned the raw edges in
and stitched them together…
and now we have a jacket which will last another season 🙂
In the meantime I must keep a look out for when shops sell summer jackets! – any ideas?
Until next time,
