    #bpSewvember Day 30! We're done for another year, thanks to @bimbleandpimble for organising such a wonderful set of prompts again. Next up for me is a cot sheet in this gorgeous cotton/linen blend from spotlight. Hoping a simple make will be a quick make!

    @mrsnickipea I have a tutorial on my blog. For a fitted sheet any size. If you're not in the mood for figuring out all the maths.

    Yes- and today I made a pretty oilcloth mat to go under the high chair - none of that tacky baby stuff, and with a non-slip backing 😊

    I had the same issue with ours! Best of all, some got such little wear that essentially they're now yardage again #notthethomasones #allthedachshunds

    @_indefinitearticle_ it's proven impossible to find a 100% cotton sheet big enough to fit our mattress, one that was supposed to fit doesn't fit at all! This way I get to choose awesome fabric as well, no pink rabbits or elephants here 😜

    @allthewhimsicalthings loosely, the tessuti one, in that I French seamed and tapered the corner seams, otherwise I'm just figuring it out for myself.
    Nice, what tutorial are you using?

    I use clear elastic if I don't bind a knit neckline - hmm, I'll have to add that in as an option!

    @_indefinitearticle_ every time I sew a knit neckline I wish I had some, I think it's going to make a big difference to those garments πŸ˜€

    @lulybelle @rivkrinsk wonder tape is wonderful indeed! Great for hemming knits especially, they don't press well so this double sided tape holds everything in place while you sew the hem, then just washes out.

    #bpSewvember Day 29 - superpower - starting new projects!! My nemesis is completion 😜 this bunting was actually finished in time for last Christmas, and I bought hooks to hang it, I just never quite got around to putting it up. Maybe I'll finish the @sewaholic Christmas trees I cut out last year in time for next Christmas?

    Went in for the #melbournefrocktails bonus round and got a scarf neck cardigan done in time to go with my dress. So pleased I won't have to wear the 3 year old version with holes! 😁

    #bpSewvember Day 25: chore - I always think hand sewing quilt binding will be a chore. The quilt is so close to finished, but a few evenings work is still ahead. However, it's actually quite meditative, goes by quickly and the result is worth it.
