Firstly,you have two stitch through three layers of fabric - one a very stiff cotton, one a very thick blanket, and all the while your sewing machine is protesting loudly and needle-breakingly.
Secondly, you then realise that you have to hand quilt the three layers of fabric together because the bloody thing still keeps sagging.
Thirdly, you have to hand stitch a sodding zip to it.
And you all know how I feel about zips.
Can you tell Puppy was terrified by my swearing whilst making this project ?
Never mind, it's done now, and this was made at the special request of my little nephew Harvey who is quite certain that I can stitch anything in the world . Happy Birthday Harve !
I'm sure there must be a much easier way of making something like this, but if there's an arse-about-way of doing things - then I'm your girl.
I think I can safely say this is on my list of things I'm never going to make again, and thinking about it, I'd love to hear what you will never ever be attempting again.
(Unless you are emotionally blackmailed by a sweet 5 yr old of course).
Have a happy weekend all !
