Old items

I have been having a bit of a sort out of things lately including photos and came across some of the items I made a few years ago so thought I would share them with you.

I made this Cross stitch picture for my dad as an Xmas present

This cross stitch was made as a wedding present for a work colleague

I can't remember what this was sewn for and can't find a picture of the front.

Veil I made for my now sister-in-law front view

Veil made for now sister -in-law back view

 The cover above was made to replace the old one. When you buy these mobile wardrobe (we use ours in the caravan awning) they come with a plastic cover which only just fits the frame. After about two uses it normally splits so I used it as a pattern before it broke to make a new cover out of calico. I then took the old zip out of the plastic cover to reuse but had to replace one section which is why there is two different coloured zips. I also made the cover slightly bigger so that it isn't so much of a struggle to get it over the frame. I also made a bag for the poles and cover to fit into when the wardrobe is dismantled.
Lastly this is a cushion cover that I made as part of my Art & Design GNVQ college course.
