I’ve made it, and I’m so excited! I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever made and it’s not even for me. It’s for Martin to take to America on Tuesday, all wrapped up ready to open on his birthday on Thursday.
I found the pattern and instructions on a great website I stumbled across – The Cottage Mama. I could spend hours brousing her site, there’s so many inspirational projects.
I made one or two changes to the instructions, but only small. I used a different fabric to line it with, it’s a white mesh, similar to what you’d find inside men’s swimming shorts.
I also top stitched along the side of the zipper, as I thought the lining may get caught in the zipper.
I did lots of overlooking and it looks really tidy inside.
I feel I may be taking a break from making clothes and start my Christmas sewing….
Here’s a few more pix before I wrap it up…….
