I've been flat out writing an assignment that was due in today. I submitted it very early this morning and decided to reward myself with a day of sewing anything I wanted.
This morning I hatched a cunning plan. I decided to unpick a pair of my favourite PJs and use the pieces to make myself some lovely new ones using some of the Heather Ross Clothespin People print I've been saving for a while.
The unpicking went well and I realised that I didn't need both legs. Just one leg is enough to use as a pattern.
One thing led to another and before I knew it, I had made myself a Noodlehead divided basket with the spare leg and a half yard of fabric and other bits and bobs I had in my stash.
I'm ridiculously happy with my new basket! It's a fantastic pattern and I really love the Pyjama fabric. It's lovely and soft and worn. Making something new and pretty out of something old makes me happy, and I still have the other leg and a pair of PJs to make :)
I think I might be having a 'Me' sewing day tomorrow too :)
