new duds

It must be Spring. I think I'm in Spring cleaning mode.  Yesterday, I washed down the open shelves in the kitchen. I mowed the lawn. I baked biscuits, pie and cupcakes. Heck, I even made homemade orange and lemon cordial. We had an afternoon picnic.  Now I have an overwhelming urge and need to clean the craft room and get rid of some half finished projects. 

First up, a pair of denim pants I cut out for Lily in April. yep April.  I cut a pair out for both of the kids but Toby's won't fit him now. Lily likes to wear a lot of longer tops, dress style tops, over her pants. Well, she did in April. So I decided to make her a straight leg pair of pants.

Lily helped with these, she chose the fabric for the pockets and then bossed me to get a move on with finishing them.  She chose well.  Little Red Ridinghood, a lovely Japanese print.

She loves them very much.  Definitely her new favourites, which always makes a mummy very very happy.  She has also picked out the fabric for her next couple of pairs, as well as a skirt, some dresses, some matching outfits for her and the dolls .... you get the picture.  

Jemima got some new duds too, another embarrassing very old UFO *blush* I'll share that story later maybe..

And as for Toby, he got new old.  Made by me though. These are a very very old pair that I made that were handed back to us from Asher.


  1. I love a bit of pocket bling on kiddies pants - so cute!
