I didn't get round to making much in April that I could contribute towards the Monthly Make Challenge mainly due to Monkeychild having a three week half term, which left me with not much spare time to get crafty. However, I did do a few quick projects such as running up a curtain for our bathroom cupboard and matching cushion out of some Amy Butler fabric and lilac pom-pom trim:
I also used one of my favourite skirt patterns to make this out of an amazing retro tattoo fabric which I trimmed with red bias binding:
And so that Monkeychild didn't feel left out, I made a little flower brooch for her:
This month, I'm going to make a maxi skirt using one of the vintage patterns that I recently brought; I've already earmarked some black crepe for it so it should be nice and light to wear as a summer skirt. As for knitting, I've just cast on for a short-sleeved shrug which I'm using a purple cotton yarn for. I'm not too keen knitting with cotton though as it can be a bit splitty, but hopefully it'll turn out okay and won't take as long as my bolero!
