Variation on a theme...


I know I've been showing you a couple of these lately but when you are on a good thing - stick to it I say! 
(I've actually made quite a few more than I have shown you, so be thankful for that!)

Lara has been getting into them too and made a couple with a rolled hem while we were away - so when I had to whip one up in a hurry and didn't want to fiddle with the bias bound edges, I too rolled the hem.

 I chose to use a strong contrasting colour for a 'pop' of colour and I love the finished result.

This pic is more true to the actual colour than the one below.

Then I ironed on this cute deer from Crafty Mama's for the finishing touch.

The birthday girl - and her mum - were very happy with it.

Terrible colour - but you get the idea...
