Wellington, New ...
The green simple pillowcase was the first item I ever made, and the neckroll the second. I made them to showcase ribbons won by my horses. Each ribbon is stitched to the one beside it to make a ‘fabric’ and is then treated much the same as any regular fabric for making these items would be. I was really excited with how well these turned out for my first ever runs on a sewing machine.

Many thanks go to the wonderful horses who win these ribbons for me! And my Mum for buying me a sewing machine for Christmas!
