The kids LOVED using these little sewing machines.
The pink one's great for littlies because it has a plastic guard all the way around the needle (but its a pain to thread). In the end I stopped threading it because Dane just loved running the fabric under it and didn't care that he wasn't actually 'sewing' anything.
I just bought a whole bunch of cheap felt from Spotlight which Sarah enjoyed cutting up and sewing back together (she made a little owl but I don't know where its gone now). Felt's great because it doesn't fray.
I've been doing a wee bit of sewing too. Some little baby pants (tutorial here - just made my cuffs a bit differently).
And matching reversible shoes (tutorial here). I lined them with flannel so they're extra comfy.
And lastly I made one of Kajsa Wikman's little Tommtu dolls from her book Scandinavian Stictches using Umbrella Prints fabrics (more about the quilt later).
I love the fact that Grace who is 1/4 Finnish now has a Finnish dolly. It's taller than her! I hope she doesn't poke her eye out with it!
Oh, and I just have to show off my new scarf. It's beautifully soft being 100% silk.
It's so grown up but kind of fun at the same time. The colours are gorgeous! Another brilliant design from Saffron Craig (they're available here).
