It comes in a little table too. You can hide the machine away if you want to.
It came complete with the original accessories and the original instruction manual and best of all, it works! I was a bit worried that once I plugged it in, it might explode but it seems to be running perfectly. What a result! Thanks Emma. Do you think I should recreate the promotional brochure that came with it? I just need a nice Christmas jumper and a cheesy pose! Who dares me??
Remember my Pinterest Challenge entry last month? The floppy dinosaur hoodie for Sam?
well I just couldn't resist buying this gorgeous Belle & Boo postcard. So sweet. I'm so going to have to make the tail now!
I also couldn't resist the other postcards they had. I just love Belle & Boo illustrations. They really capture the innocence of childhood for me. The Belle & Boo website is absolutely gorgeous. Go and have a look!
Poor Sam has damaged a ligament in his leg this week meaning that my sewing plans for the week have been scuppered due to GP and hospital visits. He is on the mend now although still finding it difficult to walk. Poor thing. Although in reality I think he is actually enjoying playing at being an invalid. He just lies on the sofa watching DVD's shouting orders at me! I did manage to get one commission made this week. A Bunk Bed Tidy. This is the first one I have made and I'm really pleased with it. It just velcro's onto the top bunk railings. I tested it out on Sam's bunk bed and it fitted really nicely. I'm just waiting for some feedback as to whether it fits different makes/styles as nicely. It has 3 pockets for those night time essentials.
One for a teddy/soft toy
One for books
and one for a drinks bottle
Our bunk beds actually have really useful shelves at the side of each bed but the bunk bed tidy is perfect for bunk beds that don't. I'm going to make Sam a pirate one in the new year anyway I think.
