Mummy's been busy!

Sewing up a storm!

Using the 'recipie' in The Creative Family by Soulemama I have been making harris some pants from refashioned shirts and pillowcases.

I also made up the Dot Dolly pattern that I bought from etsy the other day. I think she is pretty cute but that she might need a boyfriend. I could possibly do a boy version? or just another doll entirely.

The pants are great! Although I prefer sewing them from stretchy material rather than the pillowcases because they seem to fit a bit better.

The problem is thought that we tend to wear our clothes to death and Op shops here aren't actually that cheap.

My next project is going to be another pair of pants made from some pirate fabric that I have been searching for a use for. For those I am going to try the Yoga pants pattern from the Meet me at Mikes book.

I decided last night that I have too many projects on the go at the moment and that I need to finish some of them before I start any more.
