I'm sure everyone would advise you that when embarking on a new hobby you should start at the beginning and learn the basics. Well that's what I intended.....by making a cover for my grand-daughter's new Nabi....
Yep. I bought the book 'Sewing for Dummies' and diligently read the introductory chapters and knew that I wanted to give this a serious chance of succeeding (the hobby that is). But, I also knew that I had two projects I desperately needed to do.
BTW, do you like the cupcake material? Isn't it cute.
Next stop, the bread machine. For those of you who have followed my blogs in the past you will know I like to make bread. So much so that it is not feasible to keep the machine in a cupboard, but it was taking up much valuable space on the kitchen worktop. So I decided to move it into the utility. One very fluffy problem.....Simba!
We have 2 cats, and they sleep at night in the utility. Benny is smooth coated but Simba, well during the winter he becomes even more fluffy and grows a mane that would do any lion proud.
Being a bit OCD I was 'stressing' about cat hairs and hygiene.....so decided a cover was needed asap for my machine.
I've had this material for years. Can't even remember what I had bought it for, but thought 'that will do'.
Again I found a pattern which I was able to adapt. It even gave the formula to work out how you calculated the amount of fabric to cut.
Note to self......should have read that before I made the Nabi cover, lol.
The only problem was I couldn't understand the instructions. So armed with pins and material I hot footed it up the hallway to the utility and pinned it around the machine.
Chuffed to bits.
Just to prove the other needles haven't been idle.
You may remember I showed you, about a year ago, a purple cardi I had made for our English grand-daughter (Little Lady). Well I immediately set to making another in a larger size in pink......
Then Mr Mojo went AWOL.....
Finally in about October I decided to finish it but by now Little Lady had grown (isn't it so annoying when they do that, lol), so it became a Christmas present for #1 Scottish Grand-daughter.
