So now that work has finished and Christmas preparations are fairly well wrapped up (!!) I’ve managed a bit of ‘me’ sewing the past few days.

The other night, while I was wrapping presents, I sat down on my heels and ripped the backside right out of my cotton pj bottoms!  Talk about draughty!!

PJ bottoms in dotty fleece

So out came the dotty fleece I had bought ages ago (always intended for PJ bottoms) and within an hour I had some cosy new PJs bottoms!  That was the draught sorted!

Next, this wee make only took half an hour!

Microwave bowl cosy

I’m always burning my fingers on a hot bowl of microwave porridge each morning, so I found this tutorial and in no time at all I had a microwave bowl cosy!

It works a treat, so I’ll be making a few more of these!

And finally, I unearthed a tunic pattern I’ve had knocking around for ages! Here’s my progress so far.

My first tunic - progress

Apart from a few simple skirts, tops and pj bottoms, I’m very inexperienced when it comes to dressmaking.  But I’m enjoying taking my time on this, trying to make sense of the pattern (!!) and going off pattern more than once!

Despite this, it’s a good fit so far and I’ve a few more ideas on how to dicky it up more! I’m loving the vintage sheet peter pan collar with the denim chambray/cotton!

Hope you have had a great weekend!
