Bloomin’ marvelous!

As mentioned in my previous post, my crafts at the minute are all about the babies.

I’ve always wanted to be able to make clothes, and am very jealous of people who can. I took a few courses a little while back but I think it’s one of those things that, for me, needs lots of time and practice (of which I seem to very quickly run out of!)

However, when my sister was pregnant, I asked for a baby clothes making book for my birthday with the intention of getting back into clothes making and creating a whole wardrobe for the arrival of my little niece or nephew.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) for my nephew Jacob (now over a year old), being born in the same year as my wedding…he would be still be toddling around in just his nappy if it wasn’t for good old M&S or Mothercare filling the hangers my intentions never did!

Anywho, when I did get around to finally dusting down the baby clothes book, this time it was for a friend’s little baby girl – which actually turned out for the best as some of the patterns for boys in said book were pretty hillarious. For little girls though, there were plenty of cute outfits…but which to choose?

I decided on a cute little tunic top and baby bloomers…


Those bloomers look even cuter when your model is the very pretty lady herself…Seren.

Maybe if I scale these bloomers up (a lot!) it could be a step on the way to getting back on the way to making clothes for myself….hmmm, or maybe I will just stick to the baby clothes for now!
