In the middle of May, when Cam announced that she was organising a group entry for the Hottie Challenge to raise money for Margaret Pratt Foundation I was super excited and signed up immediately.
You may have noticed I'm rather prone too episodes of super excited and signing up-ness, but this time I actually managed to follow through and get my hottie cover both ready AND posted to Cam in time to be part of the exhibition!
Please excuse the pics - I didn't have any ribbon at home so I picked some up on the way to lunch, finished it while I waited for my noodles and posted it on the way back, so these were taken in the restaurant with my iPhone =)
The pattern is from Alicia Paulson's Embroidery Companion - I sewed it up in soft snuggly polar fleece, and added a chilli for extra warmth =)
It was super easy to make - in fact I like it so much I think it might be a good candidate to make for some presents =)
The hottie cover challenge exhibition opens at Open Drawer tonight and runs through to Sunday 24 July - do pop along if you can. =)
If, like me, you won't be able to make it you can still have a look at all those gorgeous hottie covers - Cam has been featuring them on her blog, and there are loads of lovely pics in the flickr group!
Thanks again Cam for letting us know about such a fun way to support a great cause!
