Time to get crafty

Filed under: Creative, Sewing — Tags: , — spottedblacksheep @ 7:46 pm

Need to get sewing tonight! Have two plain white tshirts to make pretty for the weekend and I’m leaving tomorrow night!

Thinking ribbon trim, maybe a wee bow or two and a lovely saltire too.  Nothing too elaborate!

It’s all part of mine and a friend’s daft costumes for Saturday night while we’re in London.  Going to be such a scream, and we’re going to be sooooo silly and very Scottish! hehe!

So, less procrastination and more action me thinks.  Hopefully pics later . . . .
