When my Big Sister moved to London she left some clothes, a bed and a jewellery box in my possession for safe keeping. The bed I have since given birth on (and apparently she doesn't want it back now??), the jewellery box is away in a hidey hole and the clothes have long been worn. 5 years is a really long time in the fashion world.
I kept this sweater of hers and actually wore it a few times, but most of the time it sat in my sewing box haunting me. I loved the colour, a bright pink, but the shape and style really didn't suit my figure (too much hip hugging going on).
A few weekends ago on a Saturday night at 11.30pm I received the sudden inspiration to chop it up and use it as a cardi (I always thought I would turn it into a cushion).
I added strips of fun cotton fabric to the insides to give the knit strength and I love it! Perfect "maternity" accessory, I was going to put buttons on the top but as it turns out with my growing figure I can't even close it! Whoopsies.
Big Sister, hope you dont mind :) (seriously?)
You may remember this skirt from that time I told you I made a skirt!
Bump was 21 weeks here :) (any girly name suggestions??)
