The pattern for this is from Sewingseed and Tina has some gorgeous designs. If you check out her blog there's also a discount code for the shop. You might notice that my owl is in more traditional colours and so doesn't look as modern as Tina's version. Well, that's because I just couldn't wait to start making it so I used the colours I already owned.
The other thing I finished this week (late last night) was cakes for Erin's jubilee party day at school. Today she has gone dressed in red, white and blue. I was hoping to make her something to wear but the school said on their letter that there would be lots of art/craft activities going on and not to send them in anything that you'd mind them getting ruined so I ended up getting a cheap top from Sainsburys instead. She already had leggings but, because the weather has turned wet, I had to send her with her school cardigan too.
When I saw the sign-up sheet for food to bring in, I immediately signed up for buns/cakes as I have a nice easy recipe for cupcakes. I made sure to order caster sugar with my weekly shop and last night at 8pm I started making a batch. All was fine until they had cooled down and I was ready to make the icing. I was out of icing sugar :-o . This was when Orla decided she did not want to sleep. So I ended up icing cakes at 11.30 last night!
Like the cases? They were 95p for 75 at Sainsburys, which I jumped at because the other Jubilee cases I'd seen were £5 for 30-odd.
