Anyway here it is.
Not great photos I'm afraid on such a gloomy day but you get the idea.
I still have loads of these owls cut out from this project here so I chose one for the pocket. My blanket stitch is getting a lot neater the more I do it.
Such a useful top I think. Leggings and a long sleeve T-shirt are all that is needed for a cosy, comfy girls outfit. The fabric choice is a bit drab but it was free from my house clearance mate so it was a good way to test out the pattern.
Would I make another one? You bet your life I will. I will choose some fun, funky and out there fabric next time.
I had a few questions and I thought I should take the trouble to answer them (that or go and hoover anyway!)
The tracing paper I use is from amazon here great quality so much better than the tissue paper you get in commercial patterns. It is really wide so no joining is required. You can fold it and it doesn't stress on the creases. A good investment.
OK so tracing one of these crazy patterns...I use a highlighter pen to go over the lines of the size I want so that I can see it clearly through the tracing paper. Then when I want something else off that sheet I use a different colour highlighter so that I don't stray onto a previously drawn line. This is what the patterns look like.
I have tried for many years to sew things and they have always looked a bit hand-made but with this Ottobre magazine every item I have made has looked really professional.
Oh no! They're back... Ah well at least I can get a model even if she has wet hair! Oh woe, the gloom of the light today.
It is a bit big but I made the next size up as we are OK for clothes at the moment, the hand-me-down community of my mates is still going strong - but for next Autumn - Perfect.
Keep crafting everyone. Jo x
