- Aunty Mum
- The past two years have been all about adjusting to motherhood and finding my way through it via craft. The out pouring of this came in the form of my blog Aunty Mum. Now I'm finally finding my feet, the children are growing, I'm getting some independence and my interests are morphing . . . into cooking. Join me in exploring creativity in many forms, food, fabric, frowns and laughter.

Hottie Heaven . . . Tutorial
Step 1: Get the hot water bottle you want to cover and make your pattern around it on some paper. It's really important to leave a generous seam allowance as once the bottle is filled it is fatter and I had trouble getting Janae's into the completed case.
Pin your pattern to your fabric. I've made one front and two back pieces so that it's just like a slip cover.
The top flaps will give some strength to the top opening of your cover and a neater finish.
