I've been busy sewing T-shirts for small people. These ones here were all for birthday presents. The owl design is mine and the two white t-shirts are for my nieces (one of whom is two today - Happy Birthday Eleanor!) The car and dog designs are from Cath Kidston's Make book and the dog t shirt is for a lovely little boy we know who celebrated his second birthday on Valentine's Day.
When I photographed them about a month ago it was so VERY cold and grey and about to snow. I wore my ski jacket and hat to go out into the back garden to peg them on the washing line. (I felt like a bit of an idiot if I'm honest and hoped very much that the neighbours weren't looking). The light wasn't great but I had to do it then, as they needed to be wrapped and despatched to their recipients.
These were inexpensive gifts, but ones that were made carefully with thought and love. I have a lot of little projects like this on the go at the moment which is fortunate because I do get awfully restless without a bit of crafting to keep me out of mischief, and start plotting house moves and new babies and generally worrying John. It's better for all concerned if I am busy. But that darn Kiss tapestry wont sew itself.
