Lizzie’s ‘Ebalent’ Top

28 Jun Girl's hand sewn top

It’s been a busy few days for me and my sewing machine.  This is the first output of the week; Lizzie’s ‘Ebalent’ Top.  A top for my niece who at two years old hasn’t yet mastered saying ‘elephant’ but ‘ebalent’ is far cuter so we’ll definitely let her off.  I am still madly in love with this material.  I’ve got meters left so will be running off more of these off over the next few days and then launching my Etsy shop.  Exciting times – details to follow.
