Nau mai, hoki mai and welcome back !!!
(If you keep up with my blog, you'll be asking yourself, "hey, haven't I read this post already?" to which the reply is, "Yes you have." Unfortunately I deleted it when I was supposedly pressing delete to a double-up on another post. So, I've retyped and revamped this one in its entirety.)
We had such glorious weather on Saturday morning that it felt very much like Spring. It felt like such a great reason to start sharing what little bit of sewing skill I have with our eldest daughter.
Although I had already decided on our project, I decided to search on the internet for more inspiration. I came across this great website:
SewKnowHow. No good for me, but perhaps worth your consideration if you live in Te Wai Pounamu.
Anyway, back to our projects ...
Due to lack of sewing notions, we improvised and used a marker pen to draw the outline of our project.
As soon as whaiāipo arrived home, tamāhine 1 was straight out the door
to see if her dad had remembered rice. "Will 5kg do?" he asked. We all
laughed. "Well," he said "maybe you'd like to make more heatpads and
sell them as part of our fundraising for Taekwondo." Actually, that's
not such a silly idea dad!!!!
And here's the heatpad, in it's pillowcase. Incidentally the entire heatpad is made from an old pillowcase. :-) At the moment I would like to use material found around the house rather than spending money on new material.
Thanks for dropping by
