Crafty Plans

I may not have been particularly prolific with my blogging lately and I haven't really been particularly proific with my crafting. However, our spare bedroom (AKA my sewing room) has had a major tidy up and I can now see my fabrics better and we can also see the floor!

I have finished knitting the kids some jumpers and thought it would be nice to attempt something for Trev so I bought some of this Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 10ply (in denim)...
...to knit one of these!
And I was in Spotlight the other day to get some elastic and thread to make some shorts for Kelvo for the summer and wandered past the jersey knit and they had some great kids prints so I bought three different types.

I have grand plans, firstly using these (matched with some of my thrifted t-shirts and fabric) to make...
...some hoodies for Kelvin.
And matched with more thrifted t-shirts and fabric to make...
...a dress for Matilda.

Oh that denim 10ply looks fantastic. I just ordered 10ply in Ice... but now I'm thinking that perhaps I should have gone with denim. So looking forward to seeing what you knit up.
