Here is Miss Wink (I think it was Bianca who coined that name and it might stick as her blog name!) gettting into the Olympic spirit dressed in her China Doll t-shirt and little Madam Mao style socks. I'm not sure but think she's punching her fist in the air to spur on Grant Hackett in the 1500m.
Last time I appliqued some t-shirts I cleverly forgot to post photos of the finished product before giving them away as gifts. Anyway, the way I do these is essentially the old tried and tested method. That is, some Heat n' Bond Lite applied to the back of the applique patch, then fuse the patch to the t-shirt and finish with a small and tight zig-zag stitch around the perimeter of the patch. Voila!
Continuing the Chinese theme, I just have to show you my new "Dumpling Dynasty" sewing kit which recently arrived from Lark. It's very cute and as such will become a permanent member of the Wink Designs "Props Department". It is, however, useful as well with fully functional cotton reels, pins, needles and a really neat and sharp little pair of scissors! You can see a little more of the contents on the Lark site.
It was exciting to win (non-swimming) medals yesterday in the hurdles and cycling - go Aussies!
