|Time flies ... she's starting Pre-Primary!|
It all started with reading the school stationary list and realising at the 11th hour that Miss 4 required a Library Bag for school this year.
Me: Oh you need a library bag!
Miss 4: Can I have a Unicorn one?
Me: Absolutely, no problem at all. I know just the pattern! (Then going for Mother Of The Year Award) How about I print out the pattern, then you can colour in the pattern all the colours you love and we can match Mummy's fabric to the picture? ... and then I sew it up for you!
Miss 4: Awesome Mum! You're the best!!
Me: I know
Husband: Rolls his eyes ...
So here's her picture ... everyone say "Awww" .. thank you.
I happily tuck Miss 4 into bed shortly after proclaiming that the Unicorn (not the whole bag) shall be finished by the morning.
Now, did you notice all the blue sky in the Unicorn picture above? Lovely isn't it? Shame I didn't have any blue fabric on hand ...
Me: Uh Oh
Husband: You're stuffed!
With panic settling in and my MOTY Award fading into the distance, I desperately searched every nook and cranny for blue fabric ... then realised I used it all up in Husband's Half Hexie quilt.
Me: Death Stare
Then, with the fabric fairies shining down on me, I find some rainbow dot fabric on a white background. Bingo! Unicorns, rainbows ... match made in heaven, right?
|Rainbows and sparkly thread saves the day!!|
I finished it off with some (very badly please don't look too closely) FMQ'd flowers using a gorgeous glitter thread (see above) ...
.. and even managed to FMQ her name! (...and yes, the thread broke at the 'G' and dragged the yellow bobbin thread up and made a real mess of things!)
My FMQ writing is at about the same level as her hand writing ... she's 4 ... but ...
|First day of Pre-Primary|
... SHE LOVES IT!
Me: Ha! I am the Master of the Universe!
Husband: You got lucky
Miss 3: I want one too!!!! (cries hysterically)
Me: (... remembers she has another child that wants so desperately to go to school as well and that really she should have made her one at the same time so that she wouldn't feel too left out) .. ohh
Husband: No words ...
So ... stay tuned for the 'up and coming' Mermaid Library Bag!
Me: Must go buy some blue fabric ... mermaids ... there's bound to be water.
