Another winter set for Mya

I do actually sew for Marcus too! lol but he is going through a stage of not wanting to try anything on and get pictures. Hopefully this will end soon so I can show you all his winter clothes!

I have just finished this skirt and top set for Mya, It is an otto 301 pattern for the top which I modified to have a turtleneck, lettuce hems and bell sleeves. I appliqued the top then handpainted the design.
The skirt is a self drafted pleated skirt with a flat front and elastic at the back.

I also made an identical set but smaller to send to my 2yr old niece in NZ

We came back from our trip to the coast 3 days ago and we are still getting back into routine, Mya was very excited to see her Granga and everyday tells me she wants to go back to Granga's house "Cause its just soo much fun Mum!!" Here are a few pics of our visit to 'The Australian Reptile park'

Anyway while we were there we got to meet 'Kimmy' my little sisters pet ferret, Lucy is animal mad and saved up for a long time for the cage and all the acessories that come with owning a pet ferret. She asked me if I knew how to make Ferret clothes and I thought, Surely it couldnt be that hard right?? I have been busily researching everything ferret and am in the middle of drafting up some patterns that hopefully will be suitable for the stinky furry little creature.

First off I have made her a winter Hammock, She has a basic summer one so I thought with my abundance of fleece offcuts I have that a nice winter one with pocket would be nice.
