Been sewin’ like a BOSS!
I started sewing about two years ago and although I’ve sewn a lot of things I tend to keep it pretty simple. Squares mostly…square tote bags, square patchwork quilts, square stuffed toys and even squarish tunics dresses, easy peasy, can’t really mess up a square!
Today I tackled my biggest challenge yet, squares with pants.
I’m feeling rather proud of myself as I resisted the urge to pack it in half-way through and carried on not really knowing how it was going to turn out, I don’t follow patterns and I rarely read instructions so I get more failures than successes most of the time, today though, I think was success! A WIN! Hooray!
So todays illustration may not be too pretty to look at but it represents an enormous leap for me…
Its the monkey pieces!
As I said, I don’t really use patterns so these are the bits I drew to work out what I needed to make this fine fellow.
The monkey and the bag of blocks were made for a very special little boys first birthday, Happy Birthday E! xx
Feeling pretty chuffed with myself.
