Nicola Pile

Here is her winning entry:

What a great challenge – there is so much you can do with £10 and some creative thinking!

My idea involves sewing, which I’ve always loved and I’m hoping to begin putting it into practice soon having been given a sewing machine for my birthday whichdoes a few more stitches than my trusty old Singer!

My idea is to make items for babies, starting with beautiful and individual receiving blankets.

Baby blanket business

I live near some amazing and reasonably priced fabric shops and for £10 could buy enough fabric for 4 blankets. My daughter, like so many babies, loves the soft, silky surrounds of blankets so I will focus on using really
interesting fabric for this part of the blanket.


Wishing you loads of luck Nocola do let us know how you get on!  We had some fab entries,  check back to the original post to see the rest . See you in September with our next challenge.
