Autumn in the air
My youngest is moving into her "new" room. I can't say that I'm extremely happy with the outcome, but again - it's HER room and she is ecstatic about the outcome. She had the final say on everything and for her first design - not so bad. But it also means that I'm not doing anything with the sewing machine. So I thought that I can share one of my last year's creations.
1) a blanket from thift shop;
2) yarn leftovers from stash;
3)the only thing I bought was lining for the cape.
I used an old woollen skirt for the base in the shoulder part so cape sits stable there. Quick stitching to make it stable and then just all the different autumn colour yarn lines.
Sewing machine was not used at all in this project. All just a thread and a needle, very old fashioned way. LOL
