A recipe for some lovely pinnies

This week my sewing machine has been frantically trying to keep up with me. I use an old (probably older than me!) Singer 237 that I was brought up with, and that I have always used. My mum thinks that I need a new machine, and for a few moments this week, I would have agreed. However, it has helped me produce some lovely pinnies this week.

I took some of this.......

then I added a little .....

a pinch of these .........


and a number of hours, of vibrating floor and clattering machinery ( I am surprised my children sleep!), later, I had some of these.....





I still haven't had chance to have a proper photo shoot with 'Bob' (?!!!! - my little boy named it) my mannequin, but as soon as I do, they will be up for sale.

Very nice:) I think my singer is older than my Mum, has just spent last couple of hours clunking away too.

I've never seen such fashionable pinnies! It truly is a pinny revival!
