My Christmas shopping's all done and wrapped, the cards are written so all I can do now is to sit back and wait for news of my British Airways flight. To pass the time I got creative with some bits and pieces I had lying around:
Fun fur fabric remnant found in Mum's loft, bought in the 1960's to make me a pram coat.
The string tie from hand-made paper journal bought in India
A watermarked vintage silk damask cushion cover found at a jumble sale
With guidance from a 1970's dress-making pattern and the addition of a couple of wooden toggles from my button jar I created a cosy fun fur gilet. Now I can wear my summer dresses all year round.
