blue nightshirt

I finally finished my button holes and sewed on the buttons for my blue nightshirt. It fits much better than my previous pink one, but I still had the same issues with the inside of the collar not sitting quite right. Would have helped if I had taken some more photos of this stage. Isn't that the definition of insanity - doing the same thing but expecting a different result? Funnily enough it looks lust like the pink one, but bigger.
The blue version 
This is the closest you'll get to seeing me in my nightie!

emergency birthday presents

The benefit of sewing is that theoretically it is easy to whip up presents for people. I'm never that organised but after making pirate curtains for Mr J's bunks which have now dismantlement I had an excess of pirate material.

I made a quick drawstring bag and tucked it away for emergencies - a quick addition of some chocolate made is a useful and well liked present.  Should probably make some more...
