A cool 60's curtain made great cushions for my friends new house.I have a half finished quilt, half stuffed softie and girls skirt waiting in the wings. Let em' wait I say! I am so determined to make clothes, however keep getting distracted with birthdays, gifts for friends of friends and alterations (for the next door neighbour, for example). Not that I begrudge doing those things...I remember saying to my friends three years ago now that I wanted to make all my clothes. Three years later I have finally cut a pattern out for a grown-up's top. Not kiddies, not cushions or softies... No more distractions! It's time to just do it!!

Regarding those t-shirts I made last weekend...
I backed each number with some iron on interfacing (even though it didn't seem to stick). I used quite a stiff cotton for the number two and a thinner cotton for the number four. The two was easier to sew.I made one a few years ago for a friend with fur fabric. I found this was actually easier to sew. Maybe because the fur allowed me to do a messier job!!
I've had trouble loading the photo's so here is a photo of my pooches to keep you happy.
