A few of My Favroite Things: Olu

A few of my Favourite Things

Hi, I'm Olu and I blog at Needle and Ted. I was asked to write about a few of my favourite things. Julie Andrews popped immediately into my head (of course). I bet she popped into your head too, so come on press PLAY and sing along folks. 

Ernest Wright scissors and my rotary cutter,
Organic Nosh fabric and sleeves with a flutter,
Denim and piping and heart headed pins.
These are a few of my favourite things. 

Bernina 350 and Japanese patterns,
Gathers and drapes and quirky street fashions,
Invisible zippers and dresses that swing,
These are a few of my favourite things. 


When I cut wrong, when a shirt's tight,
When I forget to add,
I simply remember my favourite things,
and then I don't sew so bad.

And here is my favourite make of 2016

Drum roll please....

The Loveralls




One of my proudest sewing moments. So much love and work went into making them, with meticulous attention to detail. I'm pretty pleased with the result.

If you would like to see more of my adventures moments, click on over to Needle and Ted, any time, I never sleep. And bring a big packet of Wotsits for us to share. I love Wotsits.
Thank you Olu! What an excellent way to kick off this series, with a song.
