Back in stock...

It's been a while since I made some wraps, but they are back. Some in my etsy shop and some in my madeit shop. Did someone say Christmas is 3 months away?... go get some peeps, who knows just how long it will take me to make more.

Little moments

1 comment:
More little moments of sewing gathered here and there.. finishing birthday presents for a friend of Liam's who turned 5...
a simple elastic skirt with scalloped hem
with a new pencil case.
and I finished off some bibs for the Free Range Living store.

Little Miss Eva...
(hello beautiful, or as she puts it "herrrroooo")... she is finally succumbing to Mummy's insistence of wearing hair clips. It's taken months to get her to keep something in her hair, previously she would prefer to yank her hair out roots and all if it meant getting that blasted hair clip or tie out. Now I find some days, when all is quiet and I go searching for what she is up to, I often find her on the floor of her bedroom with the hair clip jar pulling them all out trying to get them to stick. How she does that is sit and randomly throw them at her hair, I assume figuring one of them has to stick, right? Such a cheeky girl.
Now we are allowed to wear clips, although some days she does change her mind, we are slowly accumulating a few different ones and running out of room on the hanging hair clip holder I made back when Bella was small. Not wanting something to hang on the wall/door, I played around with some ideas and decided on a wrap style holder that doesn't take up much space.

Spring is such a gorgeous season to have littles on around the house. We have been spending days having play dates with friends, reading books out in the sunshine or in Eva's new little reading nook in our front room. 
Weekend outings to the park are always favoured and now spent learning to ride bikes without training wheels for my big dude and little scooters and ride-ons for the littlest.
Rare spare moments of sewing happen some afternoons, with most projects spread out over a few days in the seemingly small amount of time that the big kitchen island bench is free between packing up from lunch and getting dinner ready so I can cut out patterns. 
Another Simplicity 1969 finished (and my favourite so far), along with a Cynthia Rowley 2443 dress and Simplicity 2922 top along with a couple of 30 minute skirts from Toni Coward's blog.

Eva's Spring Romper

Spring may have only been around for a week but we have been enjoying the lovely weather it has bought with it. Well out of last years spring/summer wardrobe now, little Eva needed something to keep her cool and comfy in. With a quiet afternoon planned at home for her to nap and me to play around in the sewing room and by school pickup she was wearing her little prototype romper. More to come...
