…has been very busy this week. First up, I made two pairs of desperately needed jammies for Maya. They are made from vintage flannelette sheets. I’ve been searching the oppies for jammies Maya’s size but found nothing. Now I’m glad I didn’t ‘cos these homemade jammies are soooo much nicer – cosier and prettier than anything I could have bought (Sean doesn’t agree with me though). Yes I did make them a bit too big, but hopefully they’ll last longer.
Next I made another something for Maya. A little skirt made from an appliquéd and embroidered tray cloth. This is so totally inspired by the very inspiring Kate at Fox’s Lane and the gorgeous white tablecloth pants she made for Pepper. It is a little stained already, but with Maya still commando crawling, I’m sure there are many more stains to come. Now I have to try and find some non pink clothes in her wardrobe to match!
Lastly, there was yet another something for Maya. (Thank goodness I have a girl I can make pretty things for!) I made the dress for her dolly. I didn’t have a pattern, just kinda made it up as I went along. I really wanted to make a short sleeved dress to cover the white cotton of her soft squishy body, but that was way too difficult, particularly on such a tiny little dress. My sewing machine couldn't handle it. I guess it just looks like a white t-shirt underneath.
She has such a beautiful face doesn't she?
And I finished dolly’s cardi.
That’s all for now!
