The cooler weather brings not only the urge to sew but the necessity as little girls become less little and need new, warm clothes.
This pattern is called Burda kids t-shirt, which seems rather drab to me - it's more of a crossover top. The fabric is a stripy Japanese knit from Spotlight which I was keen to test out. I found it a little slippery under the machine, not too bad, but I prefer the Euro and Australian knits I usually buy. Yes, they're more expensive, but you get what you pay for.
Gem loves the top :)
Funky pants - pattern and beautiful velour fabric both from Crafty Mamas.
The pants were too long, so I cut them off, hemmed them and made a matching headband from the excess.
I have plans for more leggings and long sleeved tops, of, and guess what?! I finished another cardigan, it just has to blocked and buttoned now :)
This has been a bit of a staple breakfast here of late - porridge with maple syrup and double cream. Yum!
Now I'm off to bake my bread and make a large pot of minestrone for dinner. Who says cold weather is dull?!
