My hand sewing I have been doing in my breaks at school, has been on this African charm. I got the pattern a couple of years ago, but it was only when I came across it recently, that I decided that it was an ideal small project to stitch. Apart from using the pattern shape I have done my own thing. The face is made with Delight, a soft, air drying modeling compound. I just knew that raffia would come in handy one day!
So I now have two sewing machines set up in my playroom. One to work on Che, the other to make something I can hand stitch at work-something to show soon I hope if it works out.
