Patchwork maar dan anders / Different kind of patchwork
Tomorrow our daughter is having her 13th birthday. Despite the fact that she is in a wheelchair and can’t talk it’s a pretty vain girl. She loves beautiful clothes and she knows exactly what to wear and above all, what not to wear. I made her to patchwork skirts. One sewn of a lot of wool fabric leftovers. The other one is knitted of leftovers from coloured sock wool. The idea of both was the same, just start and look where it ends. On the sewn one I machine embroidered flowers but they seem to disappear in the background. The knitted one I started with a couple of knitted kite shapes. I connected them and knitted a border on both sides. I hope she likes them otherwise they will stay in the closet for ever.
