I've had insomnia for a couple of weeks now, it doesn't go well with close stitching corset insides. It's frustrating but I'd only be unpicking so I decided to change tack.
Mollie Makes arrived this month with a Sardine key fob kit and it got me thinking. Our bathroom light pull was pretty dull, dull, drab. The cord had lost its end twice (I'm sure there's a little innuendo in there somewhere) and the knot to stop it fraying didn't do much for me either. It had "needs improvement" written all over it.
Nothing a small grey, spotted, Sardine couldn't fix! It was all pretty self-explanatory and, with only one Sardine to make, a very quick little project. I used my favourite string (finger knit though I could have plaited it too) to make a new pull and, in a moment of very lazy pedanticness, finger painted the cord holder to disguise the rather nasty plastic "bronze" finish. The final touch was to add a lovely wooden pull that I bought for the old cord and never used. It reminds me of a fishing basket.
I could add a couple more, a line of Sardines... but we'll see how One-Eyed Fred gets on first.
