In the mean time I have been making softie monsters for christmas presents. I made 2 for a friends children, Ellie's best friend in fact, and of course what ever Rhiannon get's so must Ellie so the second red one is in the sticky mitts of my daughter, who admittedly deserves a treat after having 6 teeth out. To all of you who have to see your children go under anaesthetic for more serious things my hat is of to you, I did not enjoy seeing her fight the anaesthetic, she was remarkably fantastic however and is pretty much back to normal.
I also made and apron to wear at my workshop. I found this mega fabric in my ocal Dunelm mill, it was a reduced to £2 shower curtain so ideal for an apron, and don't you love that print. I added these heart decorations to the pocket.
My inspiration was from one I saw Ruth Rae had made. I made up the pattern myself having bought one not so long ago and it stil not accomodating my ample bosom! I just drafted it straight off onto me! The top includes darts, and the whole is fully lined. The strap over my neck is some Hawaian nuts i sent for and adore! I added 2 padded hearts to the join of the string.
