Craft a Week Challenge -Week 13 & 14

I’ve not posted my crafts for the last 2 weeks (slapped wrist!) but you know how life gets sometimes. I have however been a busy bee and sewing up a storm so this is a double dose for you and hopefully I’ll get back on track this week!

So, I’ve been up to a few things ┬áincluding…

Audrey had these gorgeous Polarn O Pyret dungarees but they got a bit short so I changed them into a little dungaree dress by opening up the leg seams, trimming them to an appropriate length, flattening them out and sewing them all down (you must remember doing this to jeans in the early 2000’s to make skirts?!)

Then last week Audrey had to make an Easter bonnet for nursery for the Easter Parade…

We used an old egg carton and filled it with ‘bedding’ for some chicks and stuck it to a ribbon covered alice band. I am yet to get any pics of Audrey in the bonnet as we left it at nursery but I’m very pleased to say she won her first bonnet competition!…watch out Philip Treacy!

I hope you all had a great weekend and got up to lots of crafty goodness!
