I spent some time yesterday doing a little sewing.
Christmas bunting.......HIT. I used the Moda charm square pack I bought while we were away, backed the squares with some yellow/white spot and green/white gingham I had in the stash and finished it with some green store bought bias tape. LOVe it :)
Pencil cases. Using some Ikea fabric I've had stashed away. I made two identical pencil cases so to make it easy to tell them apart I embellished one with some of my yummy vintage buttons............HIT
Shorts for Miss A, made predominantly as a test run before making the shorts I intend to gift to my nephew at Christmas...........MISS! So glad I did a test run. These are size 5 modelled by my 3 year old. I think they fit her better! I much prefer the longer length. The other issue I had was trying to add pockets. I just made up my own pattern - because what kid doesn't love pockets to put their bits and pieces in. First time round I sewed them in back to front, then after all that unpicking and re-sewing I found I had made the opening too small and they cannot get their hands in. Oh well better luck next time :)
