A lazy Saturday

 A lovely summer day so I stripped the bed first thing and I have now got the bedding gently blowing in the light breeze. 

Yesterday I sat down and made some bedding for a pram bought for £2.00 at the charity shop., it's a Mama' and Papa's. I can't wait for Alice to see it now. She is only just turned two but she likes 'pretty' lol.

Here it is with carry basket underneath. The dolls were 50 pence each and have been washed lol.

First I made a mattress

and then a pillow

next we need the dollies

and they need a blanket to keep warm, I appliqued the elephant on it. 

Now we need a quilt to look pretty, this is reversible

. All have been made with stash I already have. 

I can see we will have to take them for a walk tomorrow even if it does rain !!
Enjoy your weekend.

Today is going to be a gentle sewing day, I am repairing the last of three Union flags belonging to the Church. My grandson doesn't half bring me some jobs, he turned up with three flags to be washed, repaired and ironed,(8ft x 5ft ) ready to go back to fly from the tower. They had all frayed with the wind !!
