Rainy Day Pinnie.

I honestly didn’t think I’d make anything today. I thought day 4 would be the end of me – I felt so tired & sick this morning all I wanted to do was stay in bed, but eventually I started feeling better & crept out the back for some quiet sewing time while The Boy & Le Punk ransacked the house.

I used the Christina Tunic pattern from Mamu, but I wanted it to be reversible, so after sitting & scratching my head for an embarrassingly long time trying to figure out how to do that, exactly, this tutorial really helped me out.

The beautiful dyed doily on the pink side came from Jo, I think? The embroidered whatever-it-is on the other was from the oppy…

  1. These pinnies are great. Colourful, something recycled, easy to use and care for. Brilliant.

  2. Oh that is so gorgeous. My girls would love it! Le Punk looks a bit chuffed :) And done while sick and tired too - I'm impressed.
