My Creative Space

The other day my daughter produced this picture to me & asked if I could make this out fit for a project that they are working on at school for a boat regatta, apparently they have all built boats out of card board boxes & are doing a race with them on land so the kid's are all in the boats but running with them.

My daughter & her friend are playing the roll of cheerleaders  so on Sunday I found out I had to make 2 costumes (phew) so off I ran to Spotlight to get all my supplies I needed as I was working Mon & Tue I could only make them in the evening so after 2 nights I finished.  HOORAY.

I should say we finished as my mother in law came to stay with us on Saturday for 5 weeks so she was a great help pinning, ironing & helping with other things, I said "you timed your visit just at the right time" hee.

The skirt is my favourite it turned out really well, go go girls have fun, they have sorted out a routine shame we cannot be there to see it, I didn't do the binding stripes on the top as I ran out of time, more notice next time please Soph!!  hee.

Happy Creating
