In the school holidays Annie, who is 7, really got crafty.
She got hand sewing a couple of bags, then a bit of machine sewing (first time). She learnt abit of embroidery and was patient and careful enough to sit still and make THIS for her mum...
How stoked was I? She had wrapped it up and the first thing she said was 'I made you a present'. She later explained that she knew green is my favourite colour and I love tulips. Also, I am the only one in the family who ever (even if very rarely) uses a mobile phone- it's a mobile phone cover. She used the pattern from this book.
I had taught her running and back stitch but lovely patient grandma (my mum) taught her blanket stitch. Hooray for Grandma and THANK YOU Annie, I reckon it's great.
