SAL 16: No fishing!

Oh no, so sorry everyone but I am afraid I have made no progress what so ever on my little fish! It is getting to the end of the school year so I have been busy making thank you gifts for all my parent helpers and TA!

Although the pattern is simple enough, I do have quite a lot to make! I am using the ‘Wee braw bag’ pattern by Laura Zuckeruss and materials that I have in my stash. This is how far I have got – still got another weekend or two to make something for my super TA!

I have also been trying to make myself a little armchair tidy for sewing in front of the tv – it is coming along nicely – but I will save that for another post.

About wybrow1966

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school. We had a wonderful, white-haired lady who came in once a week to teach the 'girls' how to sew. I am not sure what the boys got up to during this time - but I never once felt as though I was missing out on anything. Now, as a primary teacher, I often give up evenings to teach enthusiastic children how to embroider. I am now just about to embarked into the world of blogging. Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....

    Your work on the bags is sublime. Wish I could sew something actually useful like that! Meanwhile, I find your needle point project in you last post so interesting. That will be amazing. I started my journey in needlework with needlepoint…did it for decades before branching out.

  11. You’ve done quite lot already, haven’t you!

  12. Catherine says:

    You always put so much effort into these gifts! They look fabulous, even if they are quick and easy as you say!
