It's been another busy week/weekend, school fair, birthday parties, play dates, general kid stuff! But I managed to get a bit of sewing in today which was lovely.
I found this cute blue (Isabella's favourite colour) hello kitty flannel a little while ago and Bella has been on at me to make her some winter pj's, so today I finally ticked that off the list. They are so quick and simple I always kick myself for not making a stack all at once. But think I will put a little tutorial together when I make the next ones.
I am not normally an applique sort of person, but Bella likes to have tops and bottoms, so I managed to find some comfy cotton pointelle long sleeved white tops at the warehouse which I applied a simple butterfly applique to - she was wrapped.
I also managed to get a few custom orders out the door - this bunting was one - destined for the sister of a little girl who already has some of my bunting. This wee girl has a red, pale blue and pink room - hope she enjoys her new bunting!
And lastly..., I made a start on a wee dress for Lucy. Plenty of room for her to wear through autumn, then over tights and long sleeved merino through winter. It is still a work in progress as I ran out of time today. But I used some a beige baby corduroy for the body, and the yoke (and bottom trim once I finish!) is from a gorgeous scrap of vintage cotton I had in my stash. I just love the vibrant orange/yellow and green against the chocolate brown!
