I remember

reading in the Scottish guide book: “there is no bad weather, there is only inappropriate clothing”. Although we enjoy longer days, maybe more sunshine and peeking bulbs in the garden, it is still several months until we can put warm clothes to a summer sleep. Till then one little girl will be wearing this felted vest.

she has just learned how to play DS

and showed no enthusiasm for photo shoot

I used minimum soap in felting the vest and could still feel lanolin after the last wash. It will make it more windproof and waterproof, but will need some airing before.

  1. That is lovely, vest and child. I can relate to her lack of enthusiasm. It took me years to appreciate the beautiful clothes my mother sewed for me as a child. Oh, to have my own personal seamstress today!
