After a successful morning at the shops which saw me get one or two gifts ticked off my Christmas list for those difficult to buy for people I took myself off to the sewing room and finished off sewing up 2 1/2" squares of blue fabric into slabs for the next fabric basket.
As you can see I also had a play with some pink fabrics for the next basket. Putting those squares aside a start was made on finding suitable fabrics to make some childrens' aprons for the first hospital auxiliary stall which we have now been able to hold since the beginning of the year.
These aprons are a very popular item and sell out quickly. I had better get a wriggle on and get them made as we have 2 stalls back to back next weekend and another one on the following week. I could have made a start on them at some point during the year but with COVID and the uncertainty of the future of our stalls I held off.
Thanks Wendy for having us all "around" again. Time to head on over here to see what others got up to last night.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
Those are pretty fabrics you've chosen for the aprons. Little ones love to wear aprons to help in the kitchen and i'm sure that yours will make some little people very happy. Have a fab weekend :)
The aprons will be lovely as the fabric is very pretty...
& so will the "blue" basket once it's complete.
EnJoY this HoT weekend...xox
The blue squares look wonderful, and the apron fabrics are super cute.
Well done getting some Christmas gifts.. I haven't even thought about it.....
Your blue basket is nearly done and you have nice girly fabrics for the aprons...
lovely sewing Karen, it's great to hear some other regular events are happening again
Your blue basket will be lovely. I am sure the aprons will fly off the table. Glad you got the tricky people sorted...its so hard sometimes!
Pretty fabrics. You have a production line of lovely baskets happening there.
Well done on crossing those gifts off the list, I always find Christmas shopping hard. Sounds like you had a good time sewing too. xx
