Another one of the projects inside Australian Homesewn that I sewed and designed is this fabric hopscotch. It's Bella's most favourite item from the magazine and she was so excited when it finally arrived back home for her to use a few weeks ago.
We're really looking forward to some sunshine in the upcoming months so that we can unroll it on the grass and play. It's also perfect to play indoors on a carpeted surface (so it won't slip) but we only have floorboards, so inside play is out of the question for us. Roll on summer!
The hopscotch is a mix of fabric and felt and quite an easy project to sew. What I love most is that we can roll it up and pop it in the cupboard at the end of the day. Here's the sweet shot from the magazine of the hopscotch:
While I'm talking about some of the magazine projects, the pattern for Kim's gorgeous finger puppets was accidentally left out of the issue. Derwent Howard are currently working on a PDF for this and it will hopefully be up on their website soon (hoping very soon because Bella and I are dying to make a set!!) including the correct materials list for the puppets (thanks Cass for letting me know).
