Potspie's new shirt thing.

It has been a very long time since I made Potspie anything.  So I thought I would.  We go down to Kenya for some meetings tonight, and will be there for a week and half, and it will be colder than here, so the idea is she could wear it over a long-sleeved T-shirt.

I really enjoyed making this - I had gotten stuck-in-a-rut on a quilt (that I think I will just scrap actually!) and had been forcing myself not to start anything new till it was finished.   The result being that not much sewing was happening, such was my unenthusiasm for finishing it!  So, I decided to just leave it and make something fun, quick, and that used lots of nice fabric that I've been a bit paranoid about using 'cos I like it too much and don't want to use it all up, so end up never using it. (How silly is that!) (It doesn't help that being in Sudan I really can't buy 'more of the same', or even cotton print fabric...)


  1. How adorable, and probably even more so on your adorable little girl! I'm a bit curious about those cute nicknames for your kids.
    When you're stuck on one project, it's much better to leave it for a while, and make something fun.
    Happy new year, Lucy!

  2. Adorable! How very cute - love how you have patched it with your favorite fabrics. Luckily I can usually restash my fav fabrics!
