Sewing Wednesday

For now, Wednesdays have been my regular day off, until my contract ends at the end of this month.  After then who knows what I will be working, but making the most of my day off.  Having done the Tesco shop this morning I used this afternoon to do some sewing.  Last week I bought Molly Makes Magazine and had to have a go at the Betty doll featured on the front cover.  Here's mine.

Although it was a job to turn through the skinny arms and legs and stuffing the upper part of her body, she was fun to make and deciding that she needed some 'jewellery'  - well she had to be properly dressed! So sewed on a sequin 'earrings', put on a little pearl necklace and sewed a little ribbon flower.

I've also got around to making a new bag for my camera and in red, the right colour to go with my little red Samsung.  I've made do with a bag that's been too big.  The pattern for this came from an issue of the Quilter magazine which took just an hour to make, why I hadn't done this before I don't know.

I also went to a sewing Saturday (last Saturday) and made another bookwrap to add to this growing collection.

Last of all here's a pic of the new bathroom suite, quite a change from the old.

That was Wednesday, back to work tomorrow.
