I bought Meg McElwee's book Growing up sew liberated a while ago and I've been trying to find some time to get sewing from it. The first project I tackled was the hooded play cape, a little something to pop under the tree for miss E. I was lucky to be given a lot of fabric earlier this year when a friend was going overseas. I used some of that for this cape, a lovely blue silk and a pretty patterned fabric. I'm pretty sure she'll love it and I can't wait to see her running around the garden in it! Lets hope the weather on Christmas morning is much better than today, it's raining and raining and it makes me stress a little about the big family Christmas planned for my little house! Rain, rain go away!
