Baby Jada's outfits

I am done! I think this will be my sewing efforts for a few weeks now (Except my bag swap) My house is calling out for a bit of TLC and I think I can hear my machine screaming for a break!

These are the sets I made for my baby Niece Jada, I bought the three of the tops and just put appliques on them. I hope my sister likes them

Another Girly Outfit

I have spent the last week sewing for my Baby niece but decided to make this outfit for Mya aswell as my niece so now they have dorky matching sets! Lol The top was made using This fantastic tutorial and the pants I made using a plain pant pattern and added the pockets and rolled up hem with button. The fabric is one of the ones from Fashionable Fabrics and was a bargain at $7.99p/y.

Marcus's outfits

I have finally finished most of the kids summer outfits, I bought some T-shirts from Kmart and Bigw and appliqued them to match their pants

No flashback friday today

I have gone through all my pre 1985 pics and there is just no T-shirt shots, I only have a limited amount of pics so I will have to give it a miss this week.

Flashback friday

Finally have a chance to put up my flashback friday pic. This is me(Right) with my sister and Nanna and Grandad in New Zealand, It was taken in 1984

Myas Dress

Last night I finally finished Mya's dress after having to cut it down and resize it, I was not at all happy with this McAlls pattern although it was easy to understand. I ended up having to take 2inches off every panel which made for alot of wasted fabric, Grrr... Mya loves it anyway, Although you would never guess with her funny faces!

Naughty Naughty Me!

Well so much for my fabric ban..... We went to Melbourne for the weekend for SIL's 25th birthday party and I just HAD to go on a trip to DFO spotlight. I got some more of that Green/Pink retro paisley and the ones pictured. The denim has the most beautiful embroidery on it and pretty beads but was a bit expensive at $17.95pm, Although 1 metre will get me one pair of 3/4 shorts for Mya and 2 pairs of shorts for Marcus (For the un-embroidered end of course!).

A Beautiful weekend

We have had a lovely enjoyable weekend here this weekend, Yesterday we rugged the kids up and bundled them in the car for a day trip to Bright. DH decided to take us the scenic route through the valleys and it was a beautiful drive, We then had a pub lunch and took the kids to a great park where they had a ball. Today was spent relaxing at home and doing a bit of cutting and sewing.

I made this skirt for Mya after seeing a similar one at Pumpkin patch, I love the paisley fabric but wish I had bought more at the time as it was only $6 pm

Swap nappy

I have joined a nappy swap group where we all make a nappy related item and swap them around, This nappy was my second swap and the swapee loves jungle theme and I fell in love with this fabric as soon as I saw it, Mind you I would hope so at $30pm! I have one cut out for Marcus in this fabric too so will get sewing this weekend.

Flashback friday

I thought I would join in with the flashback fridays, Here is a pic of my sister and I (Me on the left) in 1984
