Been busy, baby (or, you’ll never guess what my new year’s resolution was)

Yep, it’s a classic early-January post, guess who made a new year’s resolution to do more blogging? I have several things to show you, but here’s the first (and the second to the twenty-fourth, if you want to be pedantic). If you’re not into cute, look away now. My two scallywag nieces have been the best scrap-busters ever.

First there are these two little dresses, one from red wool and the other from green fleece. I think I found a free kids’ t-shirt pattern somewhere, and improvised the rest. Win!

Next is a teddy bear onesie, which was a giveaway from Nordic Patterns via Sew Mama Sew… strangely I can’t find any trace of Nordic Patterns any more. The pattern’s still there for download, though.

Then there are leggings (another freebie, from ToddAh)…

and shorts, using the “panties” pattern from Style 3699…

and overalls, using McCalls 2372 …

and two versions of the adorable Penny Playsuit

One has a lovely zipper which came from Stitchbird:

And I had enough fabric left over to make matching t-shirts for their mummies (using the Deer & Doe Plantain pattern):

Lastly, for Christmas presents I whizzed up a few pairs each of the Oliver & S sunny day shorts.

These were a hit, even the size 3 ones (which looked a bit hip-hop to me, but then the recipient is pretty cool herself).

I didn’t realise I’d made so many things til I put them all together like this! Anyway, girls, if you’re reading this from the future, don’t forget, I have an ulterior motive.

  1. Wow! You HAVE been busy, I really love making kids clothes too (although the kids I am making for are a wee bit older at 5 and 8). So many great photos of their kiddies in their aunty made gear! Looking forward to more posts from you in 2016 🙂
