In the lead up to Christmas there was so much going on that it felt like a few things got missed out on the blog, so I thought I would share them now. To add to the huge To Do list of the holiday season I decided to make the kids some summer clothes. I don’t often make clothes as I don’t own an over-locker, and don’t really like the zig-zagged seam look. Reuben seems to grow at a rate that our wallets have trouble keeping up with however, so I decided it was time to make some shorts rather than buying.
I made him two pairs of shorts, the plaid ones below and some in a beige drill, and then made Mia two pairs of capri pants in a blue check and the same beige drill. I made Mia two hats as well, the first one not so perfect, but the second one came out well. She is certainly a lot better at wearing her hat when you can give her a choice. I was really pleased with the end results, and the kids seem to like them, though you have to tell Mia hers are shorts not trousers or she won’t wear them on hot days.
When I got back from my holiday there was a little package awaiting me from Megan at Mousehouse – I just love these little felt gingerbread houses she made, and can’t tell you how thrilled I was to have one of my own. It came with a beautiful card of her girls she had taken and printed through Snapfish (my new favourite obsession). Thank you Megan, and thanks for the friendship over the year x
