Finished pouch and fabric shopping

I’ve finished the pouch from The Last Minute Knitted Gift book. Its for my daughter and the self pattern yarn has actually turned out quite nice. My Mum didn’t believe that I made it as she thought that as a new knitter I wouldn’t have mastered the skill of changing the colours and making patterns so soon. She asked my husband, who just laughed, whether I made it and then asked me which Etsy shop I bought it from. I had to tell her that I cheated with the self pattern yarn. Hee! Hee! I love my Mum, she is so cute and fun to tease.

I went to Lewisham to go a fabric shop there with my Mum and daughter on Saturday to see whether they sell the fabrics I need to make the tissue box cover and sewing basket from the 80s sewing tutorials. I have to say that it is not a place to take a 4 year old. There were sharp edges sticking out on the shelves and several huge gaps in the floor. It was very crowded.

The fabric there are not bad and the the prices are very reasonable. However, I still prefer the Wimsew Craft store in Tooting/Balham. The staff are friendlier and I could take the rascal there without worrying that she might hurt herself. I left the shop empty handed and was very disappointed. I will go to Tooting next time.
