Heat Waves and Hot Water Bottles!

Obviously if you want the sky to look like this..

Blue sky

you need to make some of these!!
Hot water bottle covers

I decided to recycle some old pyjamas to make some hot water bottle covers ready for the winter. I have been saving the dinosaur ones for a couple of years now as they were a favourite and I wanted to recycle them in some way. The covers aren't particularly pretty but they are functional. I basically just made a quilt sandwich with pyjama, blanket and cotton lining, which I quilted together. Then I sewed them up and attached a button at the top.

Maybe I'll make some more in the hope that the sunshine stays.
