Boys Fleece jumper in grey and black. How do you make a jumper when you don't have enough material in one colour? Stripes! I patterned this one from one of C's other jumpers, then cut the stripes from the pattern and added seem allowances to the pattern pieces. Easy! Took a few hours to sew. It's fleece, so you don't need to finish the edges! 2013

This is a minature version of the vintage 20's handbag bag C and I made together. It's from "Making Vintage Bags" by Emma Brennan.   He absolutely loved holding the pattern while I pinned it to the material. Loved counting thr material strips, loved watching me iron the pieces together, but wasn't too fussed on watching Mummy unpick the handles for the second time. This was destined to be a sticks and rocks bag...which is what it has been used for over the years. And it still looks great.
