The designs are adorable, just looking at the cute drawings of cut out dolls on the pattern wrappers makes me want to sew them.
I bought the fabric for this outfit the Wednesday before last whilst I was at knit group. Sandra, from The Ely Wool Shop sells the most pretty fabric, she said last week when I purchased even more fabric to make myself another dress 'I think we have the same taste', I think she's right!
Rather than cutting out the exact size on the pattern sheet, I traced the pieces so I can use it again for a different size. For some reason I have 2 of these patterns, so I have all the sizes from 6 months to 5 years. I feel lucky to have them too as the pattern has been discontinued now. I never thought that any of these patterns would go out of print, they are all so classic and stylish in design.
I find it amusing that I love to sew in the summer months....
I have been arty crafty for as long as I can remember but since discovering knitting blogs and ravelry I have become obsessed! My passion since last summer has been spinning, I simply cannot get enough of it. I am now dyeing my own fibre and creating the most delicious and squishy batts of fibre on my drum carder. I am enjoying using my handspun to make useful items of clothing.
I married my darling husband Barry in 2008, I cannot begin to tell you how happy we are together. He is so encouraging of my creativity.
We have our own photography business, set up last year and this year we are getting busier and busier which is great but it doesn’t half use up my crafting time!
