Gone Overboard


According to the man around the house i have far too many gowns sitting around. With it being school holidays they probably wont be getting finished in a hurry. Plus now Ethan is quite unwell with a perforated ear drum (poor little guy!) So of course there are lots of cuddles happening right now, he has learnt how to lap it all up very well i might add!

Anyway, i scored a heap of gorgeous fabrics recently for a bargain price. So i hope tonight while watching TV to get them all cut up...although i still need to get inner fabric too. Ahh the story of my life, need more need more LOL

This is the current pile living on the ironing board

And this is the small person who sits at my feet while i am at the ironing board LOL

Turtles for Jack

Jack has pestered and pestered me for some turtles. Came across some rather funky turtle fabric which Jack absolutely loved!!!

Not too sure if i like the shirt or not but Jack thinks it rocks so that is all that matters right!

A delivery

Yesterday i made a delivery of a couple of gowns to the NICU. Not a great deal of them but every one counts

I managed to run out of snaps and couldn't find anymore anywhere! But i managed to find some yesterday so i will be able to finally get the gowns out to all the other hospitals!

Another creation

Bought this fabric ages ago, put it away somewhere safe and totally forgot about it! Now if you are wondering why i put it somewhere safe, i have lots of nosey little children who like to get into things and make them theirs!

Anyway, nothing much to say except show some pics

The finished product

I sat up tediously cutting out the appliqués for the tee. Wasn't as bad as i thought it would be but still tedious, especially with a baby who wanted to be awake all night rather than sleep.

Anyway, here is the finished product :)

The cutest fabric EVER!!!

I came across half a yard of the cutest fabric on the face of the earth. I knew i just had to buy it and then later on figure out what i would do with it.

Finally today, whilst the weather has been so nice i have put together a pair of gorgeous shorts for Ethan...yes i do actually sew for my kids LOL

I had to find something that would match for a top and found another piece of fabric from the same story that is just as cute.

So whilst it is sunny, the extra is out on the line drying so i can cut it up and appliqué it to a shirt tonight...all going to plan he *may* get to wear it tomorrow when we go down and see the farm animals visiting the local park.

And if you are wondering where the photos are...they are coming. Master Ethan is tucked away in bed and the camera is in the bedroom, we all know you NEVER wake a sleeping baby - especially when said baby is teething

A gift for Cael

Yet another precious little premmie, born too soon. I am on a premmie forum with Caels Mum and thought that some gowns for a little man would be the least i could do, hopefully to bring a smile to his Mums face.

These are the first little boy gowns that have gone out :-D

The gowns are taking over

Everywhere that i look i see gowns, they are taking over the room. They are finished, almost finished, needing snaps, needing to be sewed. They are on the sewing machine, on the ironing board..actually taking up any free space i can find!

And of course now it is nice sunny weather, exactly the type of weather you do not want when you have a lot of sewing to be done.

But i have lots of important sewing to be done...another gift for a precious little premmie, although this time it is a little boy. I have gowns heading to Canberra, WA, SA, Melbourne, Brisbane and the prembaby organisation. And not to forget the ones that are going locally.
