I'm feeling a bit strange today as my biggest Little Locket is off on her first school holiday tomorrow morning and won't get back until Friday afternoon. She is so excited and I know she will have an absolutely fantastic time but I am still feeling a bit raw about lending her out to the teachers!
To help myself to cope with it all (I am sooooooooo soft!) I have made her a new cuddly to take away with her so that she had something "special" but not so "old and special" that it would be a total disaster if it was lost.
So may I please introduce Miss Maggie Moo
From the ever brilliant duo Melly and Me and their pattern Magoo (as Maggie is a girl we had to adapt the name obviously!)
I gave her to Dorothy on Friday evening and she loves her but what she doesn't know is that I have made her a "matchbox letter" in similar fabrics (inspired by this tutorial), wishing her a happy holiday from all of us and enclosing a tiny weeny torch so she can read her book if she wakes up very early (as she tends to do). The matchbox is in a little bag that Maggie is wearing while she patiently waits in the suitcase ready to be unpacked tomorrow evening so Dot should hopefully have a lovely surprise.
So it will be a strangely quiet week chez Locket but I am sure Dot will have an absolute blast!
