Karen over at Did you make that recently asked what was the weirdest commuter crafting you’ve ever seen which reminded me of why I started sewing in the first place.
Back when I was doing my teacher training I was on the train home one afternoon I saw a lady making a sock monkey (which if you’ve never seen one is exactly what it sounds like – monkey made from a sock). I went back to Gary’s parents house and immediately looked it up online. Found some instructions and made one for me, one for my sister and one for my mum.
My mum taught me to sew way back when I was 7/8 but this definitely sparked an interest. When Gary and I moved into our own place a few months later I started making cushions and bunting. All because I saw a lady on a train crafting!
