Tree dress & bloomers.

After a visit to the hospital this morning where I breathed in as much of that new baby smell as I possibly could and after all that boy baby crafting yesterday, this morning I came home and made some very girly stuff.

A tinsy winsy tree dress.

I printed the tree way back here.
I used vintage sheets, thrifted bias binding and button and I crocheted the ric rac.

And some tinsy winsy bloomers.




Miss Pepper is desperate to try the bloomers on, so I'm off to make her her own pair of fancy undy bundies, as she calls them.

I hope you have a great day. XX

  3. They are just beautiful! I adore those bloomers, I tell you if I could get away with wearing those I would! I used to put cute boy ones on my boys when they were crawling & toddling around, they are just too cute. My mum used to make them & have them on me till i was about 5!! (this could explain my obsession...)

  5. Where do you find such a treasure trove of awesome vintage sheets!!! I found a respectable one on the weekend -not even as nice as yours, and I litterally skipped out of the opp shop! (totally serious, my husband who was unimpressed about being dragged along in the first place was thoroughly humiliated.)Love your work!

  15. Oh Kate!! These are just soooo adorable!! It's making me all clucky!!! Funny though, I have been trying to find a pattern for an adult version of those sort of vintagey bloomers lately. (mmm, I hope that doesn't make me sound like a weirdo!!)

  16. Gorgeous Kate, That will be some lucky baby. I wonder, do you stroll around crocheting ric rac in all your spare time? It is fabulous. (That was silly, where would you get spare time?)

  17. Absoloutely adorable. You are very talented and I think also a witch. I just received my pincushion and my partner lives in the same suburb where I grew up...in Adelaide. Believe me, people rarely know where it is. I was so excited, I thought somebody was playing a trick on me! It is uncanny. This means something...I just don't know what yet. (maybe to keep links with Adelaide, my mum died last year and my sister and I said there was no reason to go back?)I am like an old crone reading the tea leaves. Thank-you for organising this swap. xxNick

  27. People are psycho for your bloomers honey!! Woo hoo! "Fancy Undie Bundies" could be their official name, if they find their way into exclusive shops in Collins Street. Imagine grown up ones? Wow. Looking forward to hearing more about the new babe over coffee, maybe Friday? xo

  28. What an absolutly gorgeous blogg! and what lovely things you make - I used to make a lot for my little girl, now she is 18 I can't dress her in cute dresses and bloomers - and refuse to make everything in black for her!!!

    I may have to start adopting little girls just to make them clothes!

  30. What a clever girl you are...I have been following your blog for a while now and you just get better and better! My baby girl turned 21 this year but I made her things just like you are doing for your litle one! My friend and I visited Daylesford a few weeks ago, what a lovely place you have chosen to live. We also visited Farmer Bren, what a lovely young man he is? Good luck to you both, I will be following your blogs with much interest. Gailx

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
