Strawberry Explosion!

Ok, so I got to that point where if I don't make something, then I will explode!
A whole heap of inspiration had built up inside me, just wanting to jump out, but of course I had idea after idea, and by the time I got five minutes of peace to myself, I'd gather my materials, then change my mind, re-gather more materials,change my mind, then time was up.....that familiar MMMMUUUUUMMMMMM sound would occur, so I'd put everything away, and hope at some point I'd return!!

Well today was the day! And It only took me about 5 hours to do!! (actual creating time was probably 20mins, once you deduct time spent chatting to the neighbour, coffee with my aunty, giving bub a bottle, feeding the boys and taking 4 phone calls)

My inspiration was to pretty up a $4.50 Big W jumper, for my bubba. Again, I had a few ideas, but I settled on making a little strawberry for the front. 

The red and green material wasn't quite as bright as I would have liked, but Im working with recycled material scraps, so I really cant be too picky!

I think it's pretty cute! Im quite pleased with my efforts. I still dont think Im satisfied, I want to sew something else..... but now its time to make some other time I guess!
