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.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
