Sew something simple. Primitive stars. Really I’m using up some calico remnants but you might say I’m being forward-thinking, organised and thriftily sewing bits and bobs for Christmas. Your call.
The template for you:
The inner line is the seam allowance. I like to sew it the Tilda way – trace the outline of the template onto folded fabric, sew round it and cut it out afterwards.
Leave one side open when you stitch round so you can stuff it. Finally, close the open side up with ladder stitch. Decorate as your heart desires.
Well, weird choices of interests today. Was watching Harlots while doing a bit of sewing then came back to my ‘office’ and listened to The Passion of St Matthew on You Tube. Passion everywhere! A bit incongruous but there you go.
Then watched Greg Davies doing his impression of Chris Ewbank (Eight Out of Ten Cats) reading classics and laughed like a drain. Not my Lovely Girls Laugh…
Then watched a clip where Jimmy Carr asked what Susie Dent had been doing, apart from looking up Glory Holes (more Eight Out of Ten Cats), and laughed like a double drain. Whatever that may be. If there is such a thing.
