In the lead up to my illness, I sewed some flannelette pillowslips for Mollie's class. Another mum was going to share the sewing, but her son has been sick, so I just did all of them. No photos of those. It's not that exciting seeing 35 white flannel pillowslips, but it will be exciting once the children paint them. They will paint them with dyes and each child will have a special cuddly item to take with them to Winter Festival. This is the first year the children go to Winter Festival. Children from big Kindy (Moo's class) through year 12 all go away one night. Each child makes a lantern for the lantern walk that they will have in the evening. It will be the first night that Moo has been away from both me and Colin in her whole life. I hope it will be super special for her.
My dyeing has been halted by this rainy weather. I finally brought the bits inside, so they will dry out, and I can dye them. If you have a rainbow redondo skirt coming your way, this is the hold up! (and me being sick)
A post with no pictures is not very exciting, so I will share some WIP's. On Sunday I got out the embroidery module and went to town. Initially I had planned to do the two apple appliques, but then kept going.
Then I decided to make some buttons to cover some holes in my jeans.
But that wasn't enough. I decided to rip open the legs of these jeans and add some embroidery
More to come with the jeans.
All of the embroidery designs are by the very talented Nic, of Luzia Pimpinella, and can be purchased at Huups.
