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!
