This is a prototype for a ‘range’ of hot water bottle covers I’m going to make to sell at the markets!  Real groovy 70’s style pictures on fabric, overlaid on 100% upcyled NZ made blankets. Peace baby!

One minute it was summer, next minute we’re right in the middle of winter! Brrrrr!

Thought I had better whip up a hotwater bottle cover quickly.  Something I can keep in the lounge… you know, matches the decor!  Plus needs to be snugly.  This is a 100% wool baby blanket bought in an opshop… a little bit of old New Zealand that we all love, complete with the blue ribbon trim.  Tidy!

I started this piece last weekend, Easter weekend, and had to pack my sewing room away, as I do every week, and turn it back into my office.  So I was pleased to be able to finish it this weekend.  The last pieces of orange and red flowers come from a lovely fabric I just cut out to make a top ~ so best I get on with that now!

The evolution of the piece…

Something a little different than I usually do.   Maybe I’ll start a new one for tomorrow.

So you know how I love doing the freemotion sewing, well, I have a Pinterest Board called “Gorgeous Shops” and I thought it would make a nice subject for a picture.  With this one, the fabric behind the windows is the same as my summer duvet cover so the colours match perfectly with my room.  It is pretty.

So yesterday, Thur 26 Jan 2017, mum gave me some old lace handkerchiefs for my free motion sewing.  I asked if she would like something made from them and she said that would be lovely and could I do a lady.  So I chose the prettiest three lace ones and made this, this morning.

To mum with Love xx

So, for my birthday my husband bought me an iPad Air (which I love) but no case. So I just whipped up this one (which I love!) complete with pocket for my mobile phone…
