New items listed in shop

I had a fantastic day at the markets yesterday and Baby Adele was a dream so I’ll certainly try my luck again next month.

This is my favourite dress at the moment – so cute and versatile. My model luuurrves having his photo taken in exchange for treaties!

Ollies favourite are the pirate shorts. I see these being worn all winter long with long socks and gum boots.
Check out my shop for new items – more will be listed over the coming week.

Crochet is cool

I used to think that crochet was the lesser cousin of knitting. But on my recent holiday, I stumbled upon a number of super cool crochet books in little shop called Sew and Tell in Berry, that have changed my mind. In particular, this book by Lucinda Guy.

I’ve never seen such cool crochet designs. I think I’ll try to make the boys vests for winter and when Adele is a little older I’m definately going to try to make her a dress or the adorable coat on the front cover of the book, though it doesn’t get terribly cold here in Aus, so it might be a bit of a waste.

I must admit I appear to be a little obsessed with crochet at the moment… I wonder how long it will last…

I’ll be listing more items in my shop over the next few days, just getting it all together.

Sewing day

Today is sewing day, well at least until I start uni next week. The boys are off at daycare and it’s just me and baby Dell hanging out in the sewing room. I’ve just finished these adorable denim shift dresses with super cute, frilly cap sleeves. The denim is really soft with bit of stretch, so as not to restrict play when wearing, then each is matched with designer fabric for the sleeves and pocket (Echino linen in the middle and Anna Maria Horner for the others) . If these don’t sell this weekend I’ll list them in my shop next week or if your keen on them let me know, as I can make them to order in sizes 0 to 4.

I’m also currently crocheting a little on the side, getting stuck into my second cardi for Dell. She’s definitely going to be the best dressed baby this winter.
