Amy Butler Anna Tunic

Hurray! I have finished my Amy Butler Anna Tunic. It has taken ages - mainly as I can only do a tiny bit of sewing at a time while children sleep and I keep getting sidetracked by other projects. I really like this tunic - it is very comfortable to wear and covers a multitude of cake eating. I am not sure if I look like a demented 1960s housewife in it though. I want to make it again but have a hankering to make it in white or a tiny weeny stripe.
I feel proud because I learnt several new skills using this pattern - making and fitting button loops, and gathering the fabric to fit the yoke. I am now in the middle of making applique cushion covers for presents..but thinking about sewing clothes!

ABC picture

I made a couple of pictures to go by I's cot. I used bondaweb and the iron to fix this abc fabric onto an old canvas. I found this fabric last summer and I love this fabric and my little girl likes to point out and name all the animals and objects on it. I wanted to make the picture again but bigger showing all of the alphabet, so I went back to the shop but they didn't have any more of this fabric.
