love that …
A very sweet friend sent me Ross’s marvellous new book “Weekend Sewing” for my birthday and this morning I just had to have a stitch. This wonderful folky look is just my style – and Kaffe’s riotous flowers were perfect for the occasion.
Oooh very nice. :-)
It’s been such a treat to wear – I did add bobby pins at one point to hold it in place, but I think they may well have detracted from it’s funkiness. Amazing how a pair of bobby pins can make me feel as if I’ve stepped backed to the 50s and have my hankie pinned in place for mass! So no bobby pins for me.
Abby was smitten – and a quick rummage through the fabric pile produced this Japanese sweetie.
Sacha’s here for a sleepover so she needed one too …
Then Char joined us on the back porch for dinner – so she too was invited to plunder the fabric pile and is now looking most chic in Charisma.
Mum flatly refused one – a wee lack of felicity there perhaps :-) – but Toph seemed keen. It took a bit of finicky-stitching to produce a head scarf that fitted – the first attempt will be lucky to fit one of the American Girls.
However, when the girls collapsed with delighted giggles over Toph’s new found sweetness, she became all huffy and demanded we remove it straight away! Never mind, Lucy was madly interested and has strutted her stuff around the house all evening.
Good on you Lucy!
So if you have the book, quick – grab a fat quarter and have a go – they are such fun to make and even quicker than hemming a napkin!
