Second sewing failure: I had a rare few hours of baby wrangling free time on Saturday afternoon, because my husband volunteered to take Anna to watch his old cricket team play in the grand finals (both of them out of my hair yay!). So I put the botched UFO aside and started working on a BWOF dress (yeah I know it's burda something or other now but I like acronyms). Got totally stumped by the usual less than illucidating BWOF instructions and really needed to research on Pattern Review to see what others had to say. But I didn't want to spend my free afternoon on the internets, because you all know how strong a vacuum it is, with one blog leading to another, so I set the dress aside (momentarily, not for years) and was desperately searching for something, anything to sew before the little hurricane returned home.
Third sewing failure: y'all know it's easter this weekend right? Well since Anna is only 15 months old I don't want her to take part in the annual chocolate gorge fest just yet, so I decided to make her a little rabbit softie instead, softie being the newfangled term for stuffed toy. I decided to use this vintage Woman's Day pattern from the stash:
So evil bunny on steroids is going to be de-stuffed and put in the scraps bag. I have however googled bunny softie patterns and there are about a gajillion of them out there, so I'm sure I'll find a suitable subtitute.
