Oh....orange

Genevieve

Hurrah, I have made something with my sewing machine.  A guinea pig called Geneviève who will be accompanying my clever niece as she embarks on an adventure of her very own...to university!  I wish them both the very best of luck.  Goodbye niece, and farewell 'Ginny'...

So, after running up and down pillowcases with bright orange thread because nobody ever uses orange, I decide to make something orange.  Clever me.  But I did love this spotty fabric that my Mum sent to me as soon as she learned of the new sewing machine.  I also invested in a pattern because whilst I would love to make soft toys, I really don't have the first clue about it all.  Luckily, I found a wonderful website where I can download PDF patterns to print out and also sell the items I make at craft fairs and online.  Fantastic.  You can find this guinea pig pattern and many, many others at Bit of Whimsy Dolls.  I shall certainly be going back for more!
