And Tajana made me……..
A beautifully knitted shawl in a totally gorgeous shade of blue and the sweetest crocheted brooch that matches perfectly.
I love them both so much – but that’s not all, she also must have spent ages embroidering this cute sheep and hen. I put it into an embroidery hoop immediately.
It now hangs in my studio to inspire me every day.
Tajana professes to be a novice when it comes to sewing, so imagine my delight when I unwrapped this to see all those tiny, perfect little stitches in such a pretty design.
For a while I wasn’t sure what to do with it but it’s far too nice to just leave as it is, and then I thought ‘lavender bag’ – ideal for my wardrobe and I will be reminded of the lovely Tajana every morning when I get dressed.
So here’s a quick run down of what I did: –
After folding the piece in half, I stitched just outside the outline and cut it out, leaving a small gap in the stitching at the shoulder edge.
It was turned to the right side and lightly filled with dried lavender.
A cut down wire coat hanger was inserted, then the opening stitched together by hand.
It’s already in my wardrobe making all my clothes smell wonderful.
Thanks a million T!
