So I made myself a top. I can't tell you how exciting that is!
I love peasant tops. They're loose where they need to be and fitted where they need to be. I think the only thing more exciting than having made myself a top, which fits perfectly, and is very 'me', is that I bought this sheet from an op-shop for $3. I heart op-shopping.
My mother-in-law once told me if you find a pattern that works well, make one in every colour. I think this pattern is that. I am about to cut a few more out. It's cool and drizzling here. My husband has taken over the kitchen and the kids are playing with the train set. Perfect time to sew!
The cooler weather and our planned Easter camping trip to a cold place had me sew a hoodie for Mr 4. Not a blue one, not a mini-man one, not a commericialised one that would have my son looking like walking advertising, just a nice hoodie for a 4 year old boy. I also picked this sweatshirt fabric and the ribbing up from an op-shop many moons ago. They go perfectly and have resulted in a hoodie that my boy is happy to wear anywhere.
Lastly, a quick knit just off the needles for Ms 6.5 months. A simple yoke neck cardi with ribbing. Super easy, super stretchy and super cheap when using $2 clearance wool from Spotlight. Buttons from the op-shop too. Oh and how cute is she sitting up! Love <3
