I had a date with my sewing machine today...

Look!!!!


My handsome boy models for you...

The Front


The back

I am quite pleased. I have never made shorts before & I didn't even have a pattern!! My first attempt at applique too...
What do you think? Connor was rather chuffed!

I remember that book! Fancy it being a material print.

Well done!

You are way too clever, and how did you find time with everything you need to do? Amazing.

I love that book, FANTASTIC shorts :) funny to see you in shorts and I'm here in a roll neck wool jumper with a frost this morning!! Great news that you've got buyers for your house too :) Hugs, Catherine x

Awesome job! My first pair of shorts I sewed (about 15 yrs ago) I sewed wrong and the space between the waistband and croch was about 2"!! I laughed so hard and never tried clothes again until about 2 yrs ago. I'm glad you had a great experience and weren't scarred for part of your life as I was!
