So I am not sure what has been at me this year but I have been in a real crafty slump. For Months now and there have been times when I have made things and totally forgotten to take any pictures or couldn't be bothered and so I haven't blogged them. Then I realised I hadn't used my sewing machine in SIX months. Enter my lovely friend Jane from Lil Pip Creations and her sewing challenge
I had actually pinned this pattern months and months ago and decided it was a great way to get back into it and make something that I have been wanting to do, so I bought the pattern on etsy.
Then I hunted around Mum's FQ stash, OMG I have never seen that many fat quarters in one place. I actually had a set here but decided it was too nice to waste on kids toys. I found these ones and Mum was happy to part with them for the kids so off I went.
The pattern was quite easy and a great way to get my sewing on after such a long time. The kids absolutely adored them. They've been sleeping with them, seriously love them that much. Not to mention having older brother who showed them how to really knock them down. I cringe at the thought of them playing bowls anywhere else.
Thanks for the challenge Jane, and by the way if you're into sewing for kids go and check out Jane's blog she has lovely things over there. If kids stuff is not your thing she has some lovely ladies accessories coming up for the next two monthly challenges. They're for beginners so if you're new to sewing have a try.
Thanks for reading,
