I have been sewing up a storm!

Yes I have! And here are some pictures to prove it.

I found a whole heap of fleecy backed tracksuiting at the local lifeline. It wasn't a complete steal (hence I haven't blogged about it!) but it was in great ocndition and hadn't been washed or cut so I bought it. I made the purple trackies above and have made another three pairs out of the other colours I also snaffled at said Lifeline shop. Miss E is desperately in need of some long winter pants to dag around in as she is growing like a weed!

The chef's hat she is wearing is actually a birthday present for a niece - I made her an apron out of the same fabric for Christmas so this should be winging its way to her very soon!

And this photo just because my children are cute :) And yes, we peel our mushrooms. I know some people don't and they think I'm crazy but there you have it. We are peelers.

And this beautiful dress is from the current Ottobre 3/09 (this dress but with different sleeves). It is so easy to sew up and hopefully will look cute on the birthday girl in a couple of weekends time. I am also making up the jacket that goes with it so stay tuned for more pics. Will try and take some of Miss E in said dress as well.

I have also been making costumes for Kindy and heaps of other stuff including curtains for Miss E and other assorted things. Photos to come when I'm organised!

Ciao ciao!
