Weekend sewing.

Well hello there!

Are you having a lovely weekend? I hope so.

I've been having a pretty quiet weekend with the two little girls while Bren has been in Melbourne and Indi has been spending the whole weekend at a friend's house.

Late Friday night when they were asleep and the house was way too quiet, (after I had dealt with the biggest spider you have ever seen, hmmm country living...), I thought I'd make them each a colourful piece of clothing. A top for Jazzy to wear over leggings and some pants for Pepper.

In the morning the top looked awful on Jazzy, too loose in places and too tight in others, so instead of fixing it I cut two strips off the back.

It fits Pepper but is a bit gapey in the armholes.

The pants were more successful.

I made them from a sheet given to me by the lovely SusieQ and some lace that I bought in a bag of scraps from a garage sale a few months back.

Don't worry, she only wore the top with the pants for the photo. I wouldn't let her leave the house looking like a floral bed sheet explosion.

I'm off now to pack some crochet stuff in a bag and head down to the farm stall.

I hope you are having a fabulous weekend! XX

p.s.. In breaking news; Pepper just did her first ever, non assisted, solo somersault!!


  1. Ha! Is that the stall at the Daylesford Markets. Was there a couple of weeks back and think I bought some veggies from you. As well as some great honey and nuts!!

  2. those little flowery hip clothes are so adorable on your gorgoeus little people

  3. All those floral sheets my Mum used to have that she threw out ahhh!!!! I love your creations.

    That red heart is too perfect. xx

  4. those little outfits look perfect for warm days playing in the garden

  5. and it's somersault for the win!

    And pooh! I was really hoping you would take her out in the floral explosion just to see the reactions!

  6. Love the clothes ! You won't stop the somersaults now .

  7. Hahaha, a floral bed sheet explosion... Very funny! I like it though, think it looks great! Where do you find your fabrics?? I do shop a lot at op shops and eBay every once in a while.
    I'll follow your blog if that's ok!!

  8. I love those little floral pants, how super cute. I am sure no-one would say she looks too florally in that outfit together! Yay for doing the first somersault too, how fantastic. You sound a little bit more relaxed today Kate, hope the crafting and the new blackboard are helping.

  18. Oh...I am so in love with those pants...Hmmm...might make myself some!!xx

  19. So, so cute! I love using vintage sheets in my "sewing". I use that term loosely, as I am really a beginner!

  20. such a good outfit to spin in, hey in this house I so don't get to be clothes police often and some of the outfits my boy chooses are, hmm a little interesting! This mornign was hair clips, purple and pink trousers -made by me, an orange top, blue hoodie, brown hat (of mine) and a scarf tied over the hat and hoodie that was white, red and blue - hooo boy!

  23. I'm in love with your little ones clothes, and your gorgeous gal Pepper too. IN. LOVE!! I wish I was a little gal named Pepper with an awesome mum like you! (Not that my own mum isn't amazing...) Plus all these vintage sheet outfits are really inspiring my modern Sound of Music Maria style nanny life I'm living right now, so thanks for the encouragement! x

    matter to be actually something that I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.

  28. I think everything said made a ton of sense. However, think about
    this, suppose you typed a catchier title? I ain't saying your content is not good., however what if you added a title that makes people want more? I mean "Weekend sewing." is kinda vanilla. You ought to glance at Yahoo's home page and see how they write article titles to
    grab people to open the links. You might add a related
    video or a picture or two to get people interested about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.
