I had to adjust a gorgeous old velveteen skirt to fit better and, with the strip I had left over, I made this little pen case and patched K's favourite jeans. She is very much a jeans-and-hoody girl these days, but her jeans are always getting holes in the knees so hopefully these thick, velveteen patches will be sturdier than most! She is very pleased to be wearing them again- they'd been sitting by my sewing machine for weeks.
I think printed cotton velveteen must be the best fabric ever.
I came across this video last night- the oldest flash mob ever, which just happens to be in Auckland, NZ. Very cute, and it just shows there really is no excuse for not moving around more.
Have a great weekend.
