These are a Christmas present - that I just finished making mid-March. I know, I know, you don't even have to say it.
They turned out pretty much as I had imagined them, except the wonkiness. Mat just rolled his eyes at me when I mentioned it and said they were fine, but I can't look past it! I don't do wonky. I have no idea why they ended up that way other than they're mostly made from linen and I've always have a b**ch of a time with that fabric, despite loving it so much. I look at it and it goes all skewy. Maybe if I closed my eyes and sewed? Anyways, hopefully the recipient won't notice and I'll make darn sure I don't say anything about it, though I'll long to make excuses and let them know I'm aware of it and am ashamed. Because that would be tacky right?
The linen is some that I bought years ago when we lived in Sydney to make Mat a shirt. However I'd just made him one that he didn't like and he wasn't that keen on another so it has languished in the stash. It's a very heavy cream, almost yellow. The other fabrics are Autumn by Sei from Nutmeg by Robert Kaufman, Eggs Dots Brown from It's a Hoot by Momo, Metro Circles in Brown by Robert Kaufman, and an unknown green linen that I got as a free FQ from SewMamaSew when I ordered a few other things.
