So finally the skirt is finished! The last bit took ages because the craftsy course suggested I stitch the waistband and hem on the machine, but I didn’t want a visible line so I hand stitched it all invisibly. I think it was worth it.
Here is the finished item….
In other news I have finally managed to get three tea cosies into etsy. I had a target of 5 this month but three out of five ain’t bad! I just love making tea cosies, here photographed with part of a lovely tea set I bought in vintage shop Flax and Twine in York. (Amazing place -if you are visiting York take a look).
Here are the three I’ve managed to get on:
Love this mad rainbow chunky wool. Forget where I got the buttons… Whitby I think.
Granny squares rule. This was going to be a cushion but it changed its mind.
I’ve got about another three half done… Always the way!
Happy crafting weekend!!!
