Happy Mothers Day

 Happy Mothers day one and all, hope it was good to you. I had a very nice day and a lovely lunch with family. I am kicking myself I forgot to take a photo of mum's present but it is the same as the above which is for the MIL except different fabric. I am very pleased with how they turned out.
 I did promise more craft in the last post - well here it is - softie heaven or possibly hell lol. Don't ask me why I have made soooo many - some will be toy drops but hmmmm the others, not sure I am just pleased I have my mojo back. I think maybe in the back of my mind I have been toying haha with the idea of a market stall. Something always holds me back though - let me tell you self doubt sucks!!!!!!!!!!!
These were my little test for myself - underwear. I have never worked with knit fabric before but this pattern was so cute I had to give it a go. Okay so they are riddled with mistakes but it really wasn't as bad as I expected and kinda has me itching for some more projects in knit fabric. Pattern can be found here http://www.etsy.com/shop/monkeysbug for those interested. They most certainly have the seal of approval from Hudson who still hasn't stopped wearing them (yes I have washed them).

Anyway I am off to make some hair accessories for the make believe market stall.

cheers

Well I'm glad you got to wash them! Happy Mother's Day :D I think you need to just jump in the deep end and have a go at the markets.. you know you'll never know if it's something you like until you've tried
