I've been busy with another secret stitching project, which was made with this pretty white cotton fabric with an ivory spot from Fabrics Galore London as I neeeded to make a lining for a very special wicker crib. which I traced around the crib to make a template. The sides of the lining were joined together, gathered along the lower edge and machined to the lining base...
the top of the liner was folded over twice, and a casing made which I could thread eastic through, to enable the liner to be easily removed for laundering...
...this crib was specially comissioned by a local craftsman 30 years ago when I was expecting my first baby. Over the years lots of friends and family members have used it for their babies too. I was so excited when my daughter announced she was expecting her first baby and even more excited when she asked if we'd still got the crib as she wanted to use it too! So a quick trip up in to the loft, a sewing session in my studio, and the crib was ready for the new arrival, which is due very soon.
