Delay - sorry!!

Sorry for the delay in posting about what I was making yesterday - Matt went out last night in London and had a considerable amount to drink so he couldn't drive back from the airport this morning, so we had to go and pick him up. He then went straight to bed so I didn't have as much time to sew as I had anticipated! By the time I had finished it was dark (not that it got very light here today) so the photographs are terrible but hopefully soon I will have better light.

Ta da - a Christmas owl pennant!

Ain't it cute? I got it from this tutorial here and she also does some 3D ones that I'm going to try soon! It took longer than I thought it would and I would do things slightly differently next time but all in all I am pleased with how it turned out. The colours of the fabrics I chose look a little muddy and washed out here so next time I think I will go for brighter colours with different wording. The possibilities are endless!

Right best go and sort out things for the craft fair tomorrow like where exactly in Preston it is being held and useful things like that :)

You could do names for children's bedroom doors, very funky. Or rude words to go in rear windows of cars to drive off the ones that stay right up your @***!!? Or there's always good-old Happy Birthday!!
