I ignored the groaning piles of washing-up and laundry last weekend, and turned my gaze resolutely from the evil, beckoning finger of the plasma screen, in order to sew some pants for the small ones.
It was quite exciting because I'd gone out and bought new fabric - something I rarely do. Usually I rummage through my big stash of random material when the sewing urge hits. But I've had cords on my mind lately, so I went and bought some proper supplies, including a sweet cotton for the cuffs, all butterflies and swallows, and rabbits wearing crowns.
I followed this tutorial, sort of, except where I couldn't get my pattern to match the picture, so I just cut into it until it looked right.
I am slightly disturbed by the fact that when I asked Ivy to pose for a picture she immediately started whipping out the Top Model moves. Complete with leftover face-paint.
