I'm joining in with Rhonda at Down to Earth today for her ‘On my mind feature'….
This is a Friday photo feature that anyone with a blog can join. To take part, post a photo on your own blog, write a short caption explaining it, and link it back to here from your blog by saying you're part of “On my mind”.
On my mind today is sewing…or the lack therof. I really like sewing (basics!)especially little girls clothes….i would much rather have them wearing the clothes i make and looking like little girls than some of the items you can buy in shops now that seem to be for children years older; but alas i just don't seem to be getting the spare time i need to finish projects off at the moment!
I have some shorts and skirts half finished at the moment and the nappy cover pants shown in the photo above..all i have to do is sew the leg casings and add elastic to legs and waistbands and i am done….but so far they have been sitting like that for 2 weeks! I really do find it frustrating when i can't get little jobs like these done but i know it is more important to spend time with the girls and complete the household chores than worry about sewing that isn't finished! (It's still on my mind though!)
These are just made from scrap fabric and i thought they would be great teamed with a singlet in this hot weather (and also because little fingers have learnt how to undo nappies with velcro and snaps!!)if you are interested in pattern, here is the nappy covers link …so simple! I would modify to make them bigger in the seat next time though as this pattern is for a disposable nappy cover and hence smaller so keep that in mind if you have a go.
I also loved this idea onesie to dress link and am now working on converting some onesies that i loved but didn't get much wear into a dress and nappy cover pants. I've only started one so far…just need to make up a little skirt and then sew to the top and add waistband elastic to the pants. I really liked the idea of being able to reuse some clothes that weren't worn much in the first outing!
The internet really is a great tool for gaining new ideas…now i just need to make the time to put them into action….and get a quieter sewing machine so i could sew when the girls nap!Maybe this weekend i will get them finished finally….gosh i hope they fit!
Enjoy your Friday…what's on your mind today?
