2 posts in 1 day- this afternoon's efforts

I couldn't resist this cute 'Echino' patchwork fabric with planes on it- Evie loves planes (and boats and trains!) I thought she'd like a "stirt" made from it. There's enough left over for a pair of pants for next year, or whenever she grows out of size 2. I made the skirt big for her to grow into, it is almost down to her ankles! I'm not a fan of little girls in long skirts- just looks like it restricts their movement too much, so she probably won't wear it much this summer. It was super easy to make, being a patchwork print, you just cut out along the lines, and everything's straight. I like a quick project :)

The hedgehog just wanted to be in the photo ;)

A little girl who LOVES planes - she most definitely is Andrew's daughter :) Has he taught her how to WETFUS military jets yet?

Twas a dorky air cadets thing about identifying planes. Ask Andrew - he can let you know the details:)
