She is quite cute though.
Here she is in front of my 12 1/2" ruler.
I duly changed the needle and gave the works a quick defluff, disgusting amount in there again.
I had some more of the fabric and decided to have a little play.
When I am pottering around the house I like to wear an apron, with pockets. I do not always have pockets in my skirts, tut tut, and often pick bits up to put them in their rightful place, when I get there.
I quite like a gathered, full skirted apron but, bad me, often wipe my sticky hands on it. I do have one or two straight aprons and fancied another, prettied up.
There is the result of my mornings play.
Room for a couple of bars of chocolate.
What do you mean, where are the dusters?
Both pockets are the same size as the original and fully lined, as is the apron. The ties wrap right round my model who is a size 12/14. On me they tie at the back!.
As part of my £5 challenge to increase it as much as I can for the Dogs Trust, I have decided that I would like to sell this. ( I can always make another)
I have doubled the initial £5 by the way, and sold another item.
I am open to offers and will post anywhere as it does not weigh much. The highest postal cost is Australia which will be around £2 so please keep this in mind if you wish to make me an offer.
On another note it is fairly grey outside but not cold, it is a bit too damp to hang washing out just yet but I live in hope.
I am off to Ammanford later to have a trawl round the charity shops. I want to look for some synthetic fabrics to practise on, Jersey being one. I have all the proper needles and feet for this but want to experiment on reclaimed fabric before buying new stuff.
I had one of the steaks last night, my word, I think that it was the most tender that I have ever eaten. Tonight it will be soup, there are lentils in it so I will not need bread.
Now I must scoot round and get ready for my shopping trawl.
