Since Dexter's birth I feel like I'm constantly playing catch-up. A load of washing a day only just keeps me on top, I feel like I only have time for quick tidy-ups & basic cleaning (the house looks like a bomb hit it!). When I look back over these photos I can see some things that have been achieved in the last 3 months!
In February I finished a couple of pairs of shorts for Evie. I used this pattern from Oliver & S to make these adorable bloomer shorts. I used fabric left-over from other projects, so they were free too!
With Evie starting kindy we had to whip up a couple of projects for her too. I let Evie choose the material from my stash and together we sewed this library bag. She was great company while I made it, and helped with the pins & sewing (sitting on my lap!).
We also made this cushion cover together for 'nap time' at kindy. The pink fabric is a Japanese cotton with little deer that I've been saving for Evie & this is the perfect project.
As it gets colder at night Evie has been wearing last years pyjamas, but they're getting a bit short on the torso & legs. I've now whipped up a couple of pairs using materials from my stash, and the pattern my mum used when I was little! Evie wasn't in much of a modelling mood, but here's the pink stripey pair I made:
I recently bought another digital pattern, this Flashback Skinny Tee from Made by Rae, I can highly recommend it. This is the first t-shirt I've made from it (size 4 pyjama top) but it fits lovely! I used material from my stash (again, you'd better believe I've got alot!) and ribbing from my mum's collection. I've got another cut out to make & can't wait to make short sleeves for summer & some size ones for Dex!
Once again not in a modelling mood, this is the best I could get. Don't ask me why she has a party hat & a beanie!
