My sister was born in the wee hours of the first of November. As any good sibling would do, I told her the witches brought her on Halloween. Poor Jackie! We do prepare our younger brothers and sisters for the real world, don't we? ;) Had I known then that in 2020 we would be in a worldwide pandemic with social events very limited and Halloween a much quieter affair I might have been nicer to her. But what if the witches did bring her??!!
While scrolling through Instagram one day I happened upon this post:
The panniers took a bit more thought as to their size and how they would be supported, and my millinery experience came in handy here. I cut recycled pink tulle to the shape I had calculated and laid it on tissue. After some practice techniques, I folded each strip of crepe paper in half lengthwise and machine stitched two slightly overlapping layers of each color onto the tulle/tissue ending with the final center fill of lavender.
