It was not only wet but VERY cold.
Still it gave me a chance to catch up on those projects i had on my to do list.
Firstly we made Union Jack paper chains....funnily enough i brought the kit when the Royal Wedding "stuff" hit the shops and i had my scrapbooking head on. It sat unused but now adorns our living room.
Then we made THE Union Jack!!!
The boys had lots of fun with pva glue:
It now hangs in our living room window.
Next project was my sewing machine cover.
I am ashamed to admit this has sat all pinned and ready to sew for ages but i needed to wind a new bobbin and that is a job i hate so kept putting it off.
The pillow case was a bargain find and the green band was taken from a childs skirt (Charity shop find).
The back detail...buttons are purely decoration BUT they are orange so enough said!
Next job of the day was a phone cover for Charlie.
His plastic cover broke last week so let him pick his own fabric:
Thankfully he chose a fabric i have plenty of, the first attempt fitted a bit too snugly! The matching button was made using my itop tool.
He loves it and i have to admit quite pleased with myself.
While the smug feeling lasted i decided to make him a laptop cover too.
Again he picked the fabric.
(This is a favourite of mine but because of the large pattern it has limited use.)
Once it was made i needed to make a fastening. I decided to go with buttonholes and more covered buttons.
Another successful project.
A great crafty weekend.
What did you do??
Anyone go to London to see the Queen??
