Hot hot hot!

Wow, the weather has been glorious here for ever.....long may it continue lol!
I haven't got a lot of sewing done, but thought I'd share what I have made.....
I needed to make up a Romance bag for the tutorial I'm doing to go with the pattern pieces I've already put up, so this is what I came up with! It's the Big Romance pattern....and a phone case I self drafted to go with it!
then, as my lovely man bought me the 'Sewing Clothes Kids Love' book, I thought I should get some more use out of it other than just the Feliz! I decided to have a go at the Imke hooded top for Jamie. I upcycled it from two of his Daddy's tshirts - the stripey one had a huge logo/pattern on it that would have been cut through and looked odd if I had left it, so I self drafted a square yoke for the shirt that eliminated the problem nicely!
Jamie likes it, and I'm pleased with how it turned out, so that's good - I'll definitely make it again.
and finally.....yes, it's been in the 80 degree range here....but sometimes, a boy just needs to make fairy cakes.
So we did.
I love to bake with Jamie - he's so enthusiastic, and gets so annoyed every time we have to actually COOK them before we can eat them - he's so funny!
Thanks for looking

Getting an early start...

Well for some reason, (and trust me, this NEVER happens!), I'm making an early start on things for that most dreaded of C-words... CHRI...
