20 fairy costumes

My mums school is quite poor, and in her nursery department, the dressing up box contains mostly fairy outfits.
I've been meaning to wack something up for a while, but last night with my sewing machine out I finally had the urge.
She told me tabbard style tops with velcro fasteners on the sides, were the best for the kids.

They're a bit rushed, but i don't think the kids will mind!

Start from today, go back to the past another day.

I've decide i'll start to update this now as i do things, and go fill in the gaps later. 

So at school i was shown how to embroider on a machine last week. I LIKE IT!
I did this one completely free hand. i coloured in the heart and the clothes with a satin stitch (really close zig zags)

On this one, 'My Brother has' was done using a braiding foot to sew over a cord, and 'a big orange beard' was done using satin stitch again. The beard was done with tailor tacking so it's nice and loopy.

Sock Bunny

Last easter I made a sock bunny for a friend. When my mum saw it, she tried to steal it.
So i made her one for her birthday this year.
I found the pretty socks in ASDA. Promise i'll write a tutorial next time i make one!
