I signed up for the Christchurch Bloggers Secret Santa Swap organised by Juliet over at Tartan Kiwi....and catered by Miriam MakeIt GiveIt and who did I get in the draw? Juliet from Tartan Kiwi. No pressure - ha!
I followed the pattern exactly and they aren't quite a fail, but the fit is a bit meghhh. I need to make them again and make a whole bunch of little adjustments - like raising the heel and adding more over the toe and making the outer sole smaller than the inner.... Me - fussy much?
The peg apron is my tutorial one - but I added the little loop at the centre front to hang it up. That went down well, so I am somewhat encouraged to make a few for the market this weekend.
And what did I get??
Hannah from A Lost Seamstress gave me a sweet hand-worked pincushion and miniature tidy
and a knitted brooch in mustard....tiny, intricate, rich warm colours. Perfect. Thanks Hannah!
