Having bought butterwick pattern B4251 I then began to think about what I was actually considering and this brought up a number of issues…
Making the teepee myself is in no way a money saving exercise, fabric is expensive! Especially when you have to buy a large amount and can’t rely on end of roll off cuts.
Atholls 2nd birthday is in July, I have a lot on between now and then, not to mention the fact we are in the middle of moving house.
I can’t sew. There I said it. My sewing experience is limited to first year home economics and even then I wasn’t very good (well according to one particular witch of a teacher anyway).
And lastly. .
There is no way I can do this without some help, so I approached the one person I have always relied on, my Mum, who has (with a lot of doubtful laughter) agreed to ‘help’
"I’m not going to end up doing the whole thing for you like that bloody scarf idea you had last time”
