Amelia did get her ears pierced the other day, and she was so brave, not a tear. I was so impressed.
Doesn’t she look grown up.
Today I mocked up the bottom half of my mug bag design with a scrap of calico that I had lying around. It already had some pellon ironed on to it, and I wanted to test out how large I needed to make the size of the base area.
I also wanted to test out how appliqueing onto a backing, with batting adhered to it already, would look. This little flower was just the quickest thing I could whip up, because of course, there will be a teapot. I am still thinking through the design, but I know that the base I planned with take a range of mug sizes.
We are going into the second week of the school holidays, so I am not sure how much crafting will be going on, but there will definitely be lots of park visiting and drawing and lego and trampolining.
