A Birthday and 2 Challenges Completed

Last week it was my baby's 5th birthday - she is growing up. Awww. I also joined in with a Sew-a-long at CraftyMama's for the gorgeous Mamu Vivi pattern and I finished my item for the February challenge at Carolyn's blog :) These two items made up part of my daughters birthday present.

The Vivi pattern is gorgeous! A funky little skirt that has about 6 variations. I chose the college skirt variation, and altered it a bit too. This skirt has a pleat in the front and the back, I decided to make the pleat from a contrasting fabric, and used that same fabric for the waistband.

My knit fabric challenge was the Farbenmix Antonia top. I used a cotton/lycra for the body and stella for the sleeves and shoulders.

Both items were well received, and DD had a lovely day - she even got to take a tub full of biscuits to school to share with her class.

Gorgeous outfit - love them both!

Kirsty said...

fantastic! i love them both, and by the look on your DD's face she does too!

Brilliant stuff. I love both of your creations.
When undertaking the knit challenge myself I found it hard to find exciting knit fabrics at the shops. Perhaps it was the wrong time of year. Aside from Crafty Mamas, which I am already aware of, where do you buy your knits? Any tips? Any good non-online places?
