Kid Stuff

Oh, the cuteness of this Aunt Lindy's Paper Dolls fabric.... I'm in lurve.It inspires all manner of cutesy-wutsey bags and hats for littlies. I made my Small Tote and Kids Hats patterns up in a patchworky mix-and-match style. Tonight, I was trying to beat the fading daylight to finish and photograph these (no time for a final press)....but the light beat me.


Yes, things look better with a bit of a press and proper lighting.... see? (I'll have to press and re-shoot this one).Earlier in the week, I'd made the winter kiddie set, using the Kids Beret and the shorter version of the Small Tote (a variation included in the Small Tote pattern) in pinwale corduroy. And I discovered a new page-load craft.... Kanzashi flowers! (Previously, they'd only been TV craft).

I love your kanzashi flowers. I have tried making them from the instructions in the book 'Kanzashi in Bloom' but somehow mine just don't turn out right.

absoflippinlutely perfect.

You are toooo good.

I've been cutting out stuff to fuse tomorrow, big pile of bits.

I don't have time for any patchwork or fancy pants - so I'm just letting the fabrics speak for themselves.... hopefully they will be fun and polite and not shout rude words....

Man you've been busy. Does your sewing machine have some sort of coolant to stop it from overheating????
They're lovely

They are very cute. I've never seen that paper doll fabric before - the red and blue co-ordinating fabric is really nice. I need to add hats to my list of things to do, and Kanzashi embellishments....
