Bits and Bobs

I figured it was time to round up some of the stuff I have been doing, and share them :)

The kids needed some new pj's and I am still trying to use my stash (it doesn't seem to be disappearing though....) Pattern is Ottobre #20 4/2005. Which is shown in the mag as a boys pattern. I did a size 116 for DD & 128 for DS. They fit well and they love them. I did leave off the ribbing from the ankles - just lengthened the legs a bit. And I was lazy and didn't create the V in the neckline - just treated it as if it was a normal round neckline. This worked well and meant it wasn't too high and uncomfortable for them to sleep in.

A friend of my sister had been looking for nice brimmed hats for her daughter, but couldn't find any, so asked if I could make her some. I used the Mamu Design Elin hat pattern which has quite a few variations for both boys and girls :) I made the small brim reversible hat, once in red with co-ordinating spots.

And once in a gorgeous turquoise-y colour with a matching print (of which I forgot to take a picture of the finished hat, and only have a picture of the swatches - numbers 1 & 5 - top left and top right).

Some nappy wallets and clutches have also been made. My sister wanted one, and a friend of hers (lucky me that she has lots of friends :)!) wanted 2 clutches and a wallet!

I also made one for a friend of ours who has just had a baby and made a spare clutch to either sell or have on hand should anyone else have a baby soon :)

Oh my ... you have been very busy. Loving your pjs. Loving your hat... and loving the baby wallets. So there is a lot of love there.
It is all gorgeous.

Great pjs!

I also really like that hat and the fabric combinations on the nappy wallets.
