I’m not a good secret-keeper. By that I don’t mean that I just blab out stuff anyone tells me in confidence. But I do find it hard to keep exciting happenings quiet.
However, age, it seems, is my helper. I had, I admit, actually forgotten about this exciting happening until the magazine emailed me about it! Well, it was back in rainy April that I undertook the work – water under the sewing bridge, now we’re in hot and sticky July.
You may remember that back in the mists of time I made quite a few mini moggies.
My first one was a spur-of-the-moment make as my entry in the Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition back in 2014.
Well, the original creation didn’t win, but it has since been re-pinned on Pinterest around 2000 times, so I guess I did something right.
Love Sewing Magazine must have thought so too, because they got in touch and asked whether I would be prepared to write and photograph a tutorial for the magazine, showing how to make the cat and mouse dinky duo.
To which I of course said “yes!”
The results are now published in the latest issue (Issue 29) – and my moggy project even appears on the cover, which is extra-specially gratifying!
I haven’t actually seen the article yet myself. I’m hoping to get along to a newsagents this week.
I’m also hoping I get to do more projects for Love Sewing in future.
Apart from waiting for the rainy April light to be good enough to take the photos, it was a lot of fun.
And it’s a nice feeling thinking that there might be mini moggies taking shape all over the place.
If you make one, drop me a line and let me know! ♥
