Sewing Marathon

Right at the end of September it was September Niece's birthday. Thankfully, she loved the doll.

Inspired by the success (or driven by the guilt of having been to a fabric-end-of-roll-sale last week & being seduced by fuchsia pink woollen fabric & some similar turquoise woolliness & some black & white...- a woman can never have too many little wool skirts to wear with woolly tights in a British winter...) I decided to get creative with my fabric stash.

I made a fabric cover for a notebook

& another with the trimmings from Emma's curtains

& another one with a fancy bookmark thingy

& then a mouse (still needs eyes & whiskers...)

& a few lavender bags

& then my coffee had gone cold so I made a little jacket for it...

& another for it's brother

(are cafetieres male or female or am I just going a bit doolally?)

Definitely a boy ... he's wearing blue ;D
Loving the mouse! You have inspired me to thread up the sewing machine this afternoon and see where my needles take me :D

I don't know how you make all these so fast! You must be a whizz with your sewing machine. They look wonderful and naturally cafetieres have gender. I can't imagine why I would swear at my kitchen appliances when they go wrong, if I didn't believe they had some vestige of life. ;-)

You have certainly been industrious. Lovely things too!
Happy weekend

Holey dooley - you have been so productive! Well done using up all those scraps too.

Isn't it satisfying to see a pile of industriously worked hand made items. Well done you for being so productive. & yes as teapots are most definitely ladies then cafetiers are boys!

I love the idea of a cafetiere cosy. And the mouse, I want to make a mouse. It is all so lovely. Annie

I don't know if you get boy and girl cafetieres but I do know that I think of my big one as mother and my one cup one as baby...either way, the jackets are great (and maybe I've been drinking too much coffee).

Good grief. Your needle must be on fire woman!

Downton + wine tonight?

I can't believe how much you have made! Did you collapse exhausted on the sofa last night?

No collapsing from me but the machine's not sounding too good!
