I knew exactly what I wanted to achieve with this challenge, because I have long lusted after the Mayor's anchor jacket from Jaws, and wanted to make a blazer in a similar fabric. I know it looks crazily 1970s, but love is blind, and also have recently seen it reincarnated as a cool Tommy Hilfiger skirt , so it must be okay, non?
Unfortunately though, I ran out of time and money for acres of blazer fabric, so I have had to put this aside for another time. Instead, I created a cute martime laundry bag:
I have done a bit of hand embroidery on the front :
I added in a bias binding trim with a faux-naif running stitch:
And a red and white polka dot drawstring:
It would make a sweet swimming or beach bag too.
To see what everyone else got up to, see the Le Challenge link top right.
