I've been making these for a while now as I knew that if I left it to December then nothing would happen. Have a couple of buntings cut out but only managed to finish one in time!

I've just pledged - 'I, Gillian sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '12. I endeavor to wear four home sewn or refashioned items each week for the duration of May 2012' . Tomorrow it will be the green and black checked jacket I refashioned on the weekend. I have taken some construction photos, but got distracted by two hours of trying to get my over-locker to work! Eventually re threaded it with four different colours and went back to factory settings. Finally rechecked my seam width and put it back to what I noted it was before I tried my rolled hem - and it started working again. Then both the needles broke. So I decided to leave it for another day. Put a heavier duty needle in and its working great now. Don't have the heart to change the threads back to the same colour just now so will only overlock the insides. I saw this great tutorial last night on how to add a kick pleat to a straight skirt, so am going to try it out on some winter material I bought on sale last year. www.afashionablestitch.com

I have been trying to get rid of those annoying things in life - the little niggles. So I set aside two days,and finally finished this top for my friend. This is what happens when you say, "I'll make you a top as a thank you"

Unfortunately it is s only available from cittadesign.co.nz as aprons or tea towels. So I'm thinking cushions and canvas stretched print? Lots of colours to use as a jumping off point, and will go with the blue denim cushions I've made for the couch.
