The Itchy and Scratchy show

Whenever I mention any of my sewing/crafting exploits to a friend of mine - his standard response is "don't tell because I don't care, I'm not interested!"

I have been telling him that he should take an interest (or at least humour me with a polite "oh that's nice") or I would make him hessian underpants.

Some people just don't listen.


So on his birthday on April 1st (an appropriate date some might say!) a pair of lime green hessian undies were included as part of his birthday gift.

The three-year olds chose the colour - lovely!

But I wasn't too unkind.

Remember the great Santa suit washing fiasco last year?
I rescued the pink faux fur that I cut off and apart from using this for the trim, I lined the gusset with it.

Oooh comfy!


But what to do with the pom pom from the end of the hat, well what else would you do?
It was a few days before Easter when I gave them to him after all.
