Strawberry Fields and Monster Fish

I know I promised myself I would not sew another thing until the advent calendars were complete but today I found a loop-hole (and don't we all love loop-holes!) I was almost finished the Advent Calendars only to discover I didn't actually have the necessary cord or ribbon to see the project through. And so, I made Monty a pair of 'monster-fish' shorts instead. This should have been a relatively easy and straight-forward project but frustratingly was riddled with problems - bad pattern, missing pattern pieces, a shortage of material and lost visofix. Despite these many problems, I pushed through and got them done. They turned out much better than anticipated, so I'm surprisingly pleased.

Then on a trip to buy the necessary cord and ribbon, my daughter spotted the strawberries. Oh boy, does she love her strawberries! And so, I whipped up a little skirt for her this afternoon. She loves it!

Hooray! Both the skirt and the shorts passed the jumping test with flying colours!

and now to those advent calendars...

  1. Well, I'm a sucker for strawberry fabrics myself. Very cute little outfits there. Looks like a lovely afternoon in the back yard.
