I don't mind anyone reading my blog. I don't. But if you happen to share the same father as me, please look away now - at least for a couple of days.
Normally, I get annoyed in the face of endless pretty tutorials to make cute things for babies. It's easy to make small things look cute. I'd like to see the same kind of attention lavished on the older, poutier, youngster.
But since I've collected a couple of very tiny new female relatives recently, it seemed a good idea to have a go at the couple of projects in December's Mollie Makes, bought for me by a friend while I was in hospital with Eldest. Some little boots - which will probably end up ripped off and lobbed from the pram, if they even fit on the feet to start with (in my humble experience).
I cut down on the ridiculous amount of embroidery suggested for the boots. Less is more, especially with my humble skillz.
Also a couple of teddy bears from the same issue. I hope their faces do not alarm the girls; especially since Eldest's visiting friend took one look at them and pronounced them to be 'weird'.
The last of the Christmas making - a Kindle cover for my mother from this tutorial - was finished last night. Nothing to make now but merry.
