This week has had to be a slow week for the family as we all came down with the cold that started with the twins on the weekend….in true Mummy fashion i had to look after everyone while sick myself and it seems i am the only one to have developed a really nasty lingering cough and flare up of asthma….i am glad that the rest of the family have escaped this but gosh i could handle a good lie down about now, lol! Why do Mummies not get sick days!!!
What is cute though and reminds me of why Mum’s just keep going at times like this is Tara echoing me every time i cough and then smiling at me…..she seems to have the eyes of an older person sometimes i swear!
Wanted to share an easy little sewing activity i completed on the weekend. My poor old machine is still holding up but i fear it won’t be too long before i need to scour the second hand ads for a ‘new’ one soon! What do you find handy in a machine? This model has only basic stitches but i often ask myself if i would need more when i only sew basic projects anyway…something to continue thinking about but always interested in your opinions!!
For a while now i have been concerned about the amount of plastic wrap we are using in lunchboxes and thought that fabric sandwich wraps sounded like a great idea so started doing a little net research (shame i kept getting sidetracked by new and interesting blogs!!) and found that….
1.They are very expensive to buy…no idea why…they use very little material….popularity i guess?
2. There are many, many tutorials for lunch wraps but many were just too fiddly or time consuming for my liking as many of my projects have to be completed during nap times or they don’t happen!
I found this very simple and easy tutorial by Jill on her very creative blog…i so enjoyed visiting her blog and I’m sure you would too….she is also a fellow Aussie so even better!!!
I’m not going to write a tutorial because Jill has explained it so much better than i could and it is her idea of course but i thought i would share some pics of my wraps….i am really happy with how they turned out and they really were just so easy!
Have you made any fabric lunch or snack wraps? I’d love to hear how they work for you or your favourite design!
