T shirt quilt, Phone cushions and Flamingo Bingo!

Barbara B.

Making this quilt really tested maths and sewing skills to achieve the finished size required as the shirts were all different sizes . Also mixing woven  and thin  knitted fabrics  was challenging.

Flamingo Bingo!

When asked what she would like for her 8th birthday, my granddaughter requested “something knitted by Nana”. Now, as flattered as I am by this (and I’m sure there will come a time when it won’t be ‘cool’ to have anything made by Nana) my first thought was “What can I knit for a child who has lately become decidedly fussy about what she wears?” Then I remembered that I have the book ‘ Knitted animal scarves, mitts and socks by Fiona Goble’. It’s a lovely book with lots of very cute patterns to suit children of all ages, and there on pages 88 and 89 I found the perfect idea!

Let me explain – all the classes at my granddaughter’s school have names taken from nature, so she has been a caterpillar, a lion, a zebra and is now a flamingo. Bingo! If she’s half as happy with her scarf as I am, I will be more than pleased 🙂
