Laundry labels

The fun sewing had to stop as I had an urgent order from DD for tags to mark the bag she puts into communal laundry. I did as set for her friend too. Two more sets are cut out and ready to go.

They are 8 x 4, interfaced with ties added at one end.

Block 3

I was meant to do one a day but I think 2 a week might be more achievable. I am finding Physio pretty tiring so sewing has to be done reclining!

Long legged sock monkey

He's nearly finished. Turned out the sock i used was a little flimsy but he'll be ok for an older child or adult. The long legs give him a very comical appearance.
