Walkies and Wide legged trews

Did you all have a good Solstice? M and I walked up to Rabbit field and celebrated there; the downside was that I got munched to bits by the midges and have spent the last day or so looking like I have chickenpox! Oww! I'm sensitive to insect bites and boy do they love me! I've even had to resort to taking some anti-histamines to try and counteract the effects a little.

Today I took the Hound of the Baskervilles up to Rabbit field for a good run around and a camera phone photo shoot...

Said 'Hello' to Mr. Oak Tree

Admired the wild flowers covering the fields...

I finished off some wide legged trousers I've been making - possible to wear at the Hafla on Thursday night. I based the pattern on a pair of trousers that I already had with a few adjustments.

Then I sewed it all together....

And here are my wide legged trews! They're nice and swishy and look like a divided skirt. I found the material in a charity shop and it's more of a purple colour than it seems in the picture. It's also kinda stretchy, but only sideways if you understand what I mean? I need to see if I can find the iron...


And in the same charity shop I found this pillowcase for 50p. I didn't see the Disney motif till I got it home, I thought it was a nice plain starry pillowcase that I could turn into a little summer top.

So I made a tote bag instead

I cut the motif off and made it into a pocket. It'll make a nice WIP project bag; it's very roomy!!

There's a fair few hippy folks signed up for the Hippy Swap over on Craftster; I can't wait to get crafting. There's some great ideas bouncing around!!
