Hippo happiness

Do you ever make deals with yourself? I do. I promised myself that when I finished half of my Dear Jane borders, I would allow myself to play with my new Ric Rac pattern.

Hippos made by Granny Maud's Girl using pattern by Jodie Carleton of Ric Rac

Two happy hippos are off to a party in the rain.

The pattern is called ‘The Full Parade’ and includes a hippo, a polar bear, a giraffe and an elephant. Making the hippos was such fun and each pattern is the perfect size for one bit of felt. I think I need to buy some more safety eyes to expand my menagerie.

How do you reward yourself when you reach a sewing goal?

  1. Generally it involves a visit to the fabric shop, I’m sorry to say. My to do is very insistent, I have so many ideas and the only thing that stops me going into a spin is the need to finish one project before I start the next. Probably my only sewing-related discipline…

  2. That giraffe is awesome … I might have to buy this pattern. My reward is starting something new. Right now I have too many WIP going so once those are under control then I will really get a reward.
