So, my daughter, a first year Girl Guide, saw my camping poncho which is quite heavily laden in patches and badges. She declared she wanted one.
Enter the ever-patient help of my skilled friend A. She not only bought the fabric for me when at a store that carried the fleece I needed but she talked me through every single stage.
|This is A's kitchen floor, with A in the background.
|I decided to vary the poncho from my own by adding contrasting binding. Isn't it cute?
Now I just need a toggle and to add some of the badges that don't go on her sash (ones from camps, etc).
I absolutely could NOT have done this (with any measure of success, anyway) without patient friend A talking me through it! So thank you again, A!
