I'm trying to make some more items for my charity craft stall on 1st May.
This weekend DBF and I made 34 jars of Chilli Chutney and I made 5 scarves. The chutney is in the spare fridge in the garage, waiting for another day when I can do the labels and dress some of the less pretty jars with fabric. I'll share those another time, in the meantime here's the scarves.
each is approx 2metres long (and half the width of the fabric) and can be worn looped 2 or 3 times round the neck.
(I bought this fabric on Preston market with YorkshireLass and some other ladies at a sewing weekend in 2008). I still love the print but decided that the 100% polyester was not something I wanted as a top or skirt, but I may keep one of these scarves for myself.
trousers in Debenhams as I needed some plain black trousers for choir. Astonishingly the fit was pretty good, they were comfortable, washable and smart. I have a lot of trouble finding RTW trousers and often have to alter them so I was over the moon and just bought them.
You can't see too well but they have front slash pockets, back welt pockets, front zip, belt loops and belt and a tiny section of comfort waist. So I've decided to spare myself the pain of sewing trousers right now and just buy some more of these. They come in grey, navy, taupe, beige and natural, so I am definitely going to buy the taupe and navy as well and have a think about the other colours (grey is instore but the taupe, beige and natural seemed to be online only at the moment, maybe they will come in store nearer to the summer).
