Bury St. Edmunds...
About a year ago, my Mum picked up this green, woolen fabric for £1.99 at a charity shop. I promised to turn it into a poncho/cape – like one we’d seen a few doors down for around £40 – but until now, I could never seem to get round to it. When I saw the Camel Capealot by loyl8 though, I remembered I still had this fabric in my stash and jumped at the chance to sew something quick and easy as a break from the relentless knitting I seem to be doing at the moment.
It’s big enough to comfortably cover me and full-term bump so I hope it’s not too big for her… Still, I suppose she can always belt it if it turns out not to be to her taste. :)
My project is, as I said, based on http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/camel-capealot – however whenever I tick the box at the bottom of this form to say so, my browser won’t let me proceed so credit for the original will have to go here instead.
