I have promised to make my daughter a blanket from all her old baby clothes for ages now. Too late I realised I am rubbish at sewing. I have sewn this blanket to my trousers, to our duvet and to itself. I skewered by thumb with the needle and had to put a plaster on it. I then sewed the plaster to the blanket. Thank goodness it's now finished before I sew myself up in a straight jacket!
