I was determined to use up some more of the wool left over from making my knitted blanket. I keep finding more of it in my little sewing room and just when I think it has all gone I find yet...another ball of it!
I did find making the handles a little tricky as I was not really sure what length to make them. I added picot edging around everything.
I was not really sure how big to make the squares, and next time I make it a little smaller.
Beautifully modelled by Sophie.
I have put a bit of leftover plastic canvas in the base which I covered with some white felt, just to support it a little. Not sure if it should actually be lined on all sides. Something to thin about for next time.
500th Post Giveaway
Next time will come around very quickly as I have decided for a change to make another one of these for my 500th post giveaway instead of sewing an item. It is not made yet but the wool has been gathered together. If you do not want to use it for wool, sewing etc, then it would make a cute little handbag for the summer. So if you would like to enter then please leave a comment here. If you would like to feature a link on your blog to this giveaway for a second entry then let me know that you have done that so that I can keep everything fair. Entry for this giveaway will remain open until NOON on Sunday 30th May 2010 (UK time). So that I can announce the winner.
Right, off for some beauty sleep, not feeling quite so worn out today, must be the better weather perking me up a little.
