That little bit of sewing

Remember I did some sewing the other day, and whipped up a cover my new toy (silhouette cutter).

Made one for my sister in law's birthday, which has now passed so I can share it here - I didn't want to spoil the surprise in case she happened to read my blog.

_MG_5810I guess I could have ironed it. ;-) I have a heap of tulle pom pom things that came on a hand me down shirt (god awful!) for the girls, which I cut up - singly they are very cute, so I stitched one on to show which was the front of the cover.

And for the sewing purists:  I couldn't find any black cotton.  I used a blue that matched the blue flowers on the fabric - which is real, old, proper retro fabric, that came from my mother's cupboard, and before that I think that it was in my grandmothers - destined for a house dress or something?!  (she died when I was six, some thirty years ago, so who knows just how long that fabric has been around!)

Man, sometimes I feel old, especially when I can say:  thirty years ago, when I was.... sigh.


  1. Nahhh, you're a youngin' still ;-)

    I like the cotton, looks good, bet she loved it!

  2. In a couple of months I'm going to be able to say, 'forty years ago'. OUCH. That tulle looks like the very thing my three year old would treasure to infinity and beyond...
