Alex's Humpty Dumpty

I just wanted to show you all a little something that Alex (my husband) made for James for Christmas.
It is a Humpty Dumpty doll. He did such a great job with it! I am very proud. He made it without a pattern and just studied the character to work it all out. It was something he had been thinking about for a while, but he only made it up in the two days before Christmas. Well Done Alex!!!

James has New Pants!

Well, I took a bit of time to make James this pair of pants from the Ottobre pattern range, but I am quite happy with the outcome. Alex did not like the look of thm when I was sewing them, but agreed that they looked great when they were on him, worn with a plain navy t-shirt. He looked great.
Sorry the picture isn't great, you can't see any of the detail. But you get the idea....

Secret Santa Pressie!!

In the week before Christmas I received in the mail a present from my Secret Santa Essential Baby Sewing Group swap.
It was a very thoughtful gift from Helen of "boy" prints, anda book for James (which he LOVES by the way). I didn't manage to get a photo of the got snatched off me to put with his other books. But I did get a photo of the fabrics.
Thank You Helen!!!

Singlet Dress

I have borrowed an idea from Kylie and made a singlet dress. To be honest, I don't know who it is for yet. I want it to be for Claudia (and friend of James) but she is a little girl and I don't know if she will fit the size one singlet that I used. We will see how it goes.

Christmas Tree Outfit

Ok, I am finally getting around to posting pictures of the Christmas Tree outfits that I made for James' Daycare Christmas Party.

James agreed to model one for me too.... well if he could talk he could have said no, but he didn't so it was his bad luck.
