KCWC Day 4

Manged to squeeze in a little project for the littlest miss - couldn't go past this pattern for ruffled bloomers!

I found the leg holes tough to get right, but practice makes perfect i guess!

Sitting down tonight to thread in the elastic and cut out some pieces out to sew, sew, sew tomorrow!

KCWC 2011

the warmer weather is well and truly here in sunny Queensland and you know what that means: spring sewing! With summer fast approaching and kindy on the horizon for little miss, i have decided to join the sew-a-long kids clothing week challenge going on at Elsie Marley..

So you basically just commit to sewing a hour a day of clothing for the kids. My almost-four-year-old has very definite ideas about what she wants to wear and im always hard pressed to get her in anything but skirts and dresses, so this is what i am aiming at.

We took ourselves off to the fabric shop today so she could choose her own fabric and after a little negotiation (hot pink sequins anyone?!) this is what she picked...

So with the kiddies tucked up in bed, im sitting down to sew for an hour..... or two!

Check back here during the week for the end results...

Thanks for stopping by!

My Creative Space.....

Yet another week flown by and still only managing to blog - just where does the time go?

just sneaking in with my creative space this week...

A certain little miss is having a birthday next week, so i have been working on some little projects as party favors instead of the traditional 'party bags'

and what more could little girls want than their own pint sized sparkly mermaiden?!

These little ones will be finding new homes with our party guests! The pattern is from this sweet book which is a little gem - definitely a must have for any avid softie makers! Now to make something for the boys...

Hope your all having a wonderfully creative day!

Thanks for stopping by!
