Little M was playing along side me and asked if she could make a lipstick case so we cut off the cuffs and she had a little go on the machine with me, she loves that. She was so proud, she made her sister one with the other cuff...
She was waiting patiently to show her dad when he got in from work. "Look dad, I made a lipstick case." she enthused. "Is that my pink shirt?" he enquired. "It had a hole in the back," I said. "I know," he said, "but I always wear it with a jumper on top!!!"
Oh wowsers - I cut up his shirt!
but we gained a new shirt skirt for Little M - We love making those.
More squares for the girl's quilts. I nearly cried when I cut up those strawberry boden trousers which had been handed down through 4 girls to us, the oldest girl being 14 now. The other ditsy print is a pair of my pyjamas that had seen better days. (can you see, I cut up another shirt there but that one had been donated by bloke for the scraps pile)
In reality, there was nothing more than the collar left.
We showed him what else we had made from it and we all laughed about it like characters from a 1950's American sitcom, but I did feel a bit bad deep down. Ooops-a-daisy:@
