We decorated and remembered other sweet birthdays
And made a birthday t
Hmmm, I do hope the t is clear enough in these photographs... I had planned to do the usual buy a basic t and then add number and initial in a viking fabric, as P has requested that this be a viking birthday. More specifically a How to Train your Dragon birthday. Luckily I was searching for a suitable fabric while Linda and Ems were staying as Linda had the brilliant suggestion of making dragon scale fabric - I hope I have done your thought justice, Linda! So following a lovely morning trip to Fabric Rehab last week I returned with fabric to make Hiccup's clothing (oh my!) and this lovely green felt. This is wool felt, so rather superior and thick, which has resulted in what looks like two felt coasters sewn on to a t-shirt but I loved the shade of green. And useful to have a multi-purpose t-shirt which P can whip off if we are ever in need of protecting our table from a particularly hot pot.
I cut this lovely green felt into strips, with a scalloped edge along one side, and then stitched it back together by stitching along the scaly edge. I then cut out the shapes and edge stitched around them to attach them to the t.
Hiccup's clothing and helmet are also made, in preparation for Patch's viking friends to descend on Saturday. As yet no Toothless. Ethel -our kit - may just have to step in.
Happy birthday sweet P!
