Well the perpetrator is our President's Mum ( no, not THAT President - our association president) and she'd be mortified to hear they didn't fit ( or all the other tawdry problems) Fortunately she lives in Spain, unfortunately she is very likely to see them from her front row seat when they will be used! I don't have any before pictures and I'll see if I can get a picture of the little ones wearing them - It ain't pretty even now ( apart from the ones I made from scratch of course !!)

 Just to help thing out on the "Oooh how lovely" front, I made 19 flowers - well, I bought 19 large white fabric roses, cut of the  wire stems, glued on hair elastics then used deep burgundy nail polish to tip each petal in order to tie the colours in with the cross-overs.

Ok, so you asked for it - brace yourselves and consider that I did the best I could and that the white ones are my work. here  is one group of little people with their teacher Flo. Again - I did the best I could ( sob)

They're all supposed to be tied to the other side through the hole left in the seam for that purpose, but by this stage, who cares!!

Just makes me cringe to see some of these ! Never going to let someone else "help" again - far too stressful.

Whatever you think, forget those thoughts, I think you've made a beautiful job of them 👍 👏
