The tutorial was great - I found it pretty easy to follow even though it involved making up your own pattern pieces from your own measurements (something I had never done before). It probably took me a couple of hours to make in total and would have been quicker but I did it over several nights rather than in one go. I'm still not sure about the fabric. My other half hates it (but what does he know?!). I'm thinking maybe its a bit old for Izzy but the skirt actually looks really cute on and I'm feeling very pleased with myself for a first effort. Lovely tutorial.
February's project will be not one but two pairs of shoes!
I'll be doing these for boys from a free tutorial on the Family Centred Life website
and these cute little Mary Janes from a pattern I bought from My Sweet Little on MISI. The pattern was only £2.60 which I think is a complete bargain. Watch this space for my versions!!
Don't forget my buggy blanket giveaway ends on Saturday. I took a photo of Sam having a little snooze under his blanket yesterday. He finally seems better now and is back to his usual happy self. Hurrah!
