Wet but Productive Weekend!

I've managed to get a bit of sewing done this weekend! It's been wet, the kids have been watching TV with their dad and I've made the kiddo's some new clothes from old t-shirts (and a tiny amouont of new kids prints from Spotlight) using a couple of really easy patterns I bought from Ashley at Lil Blue Boo.

I haven't really sewn stretch fabric before but it's pretty easy and very forgiving!
I love the fabric combination in Matilda's dress - it's girlie without being "pink" (if you know what I mean)! And she really loves wearing it - super comfy in old t-shirt material!! Same with Kelvin's hoodie - it is so soft and cosy!

I love the clothes! I always put my Bug in stretch fabric so he can move and run and climb the furniture...hang on, what am I thinking?! ;)

I'll check out the patterns. And I've just finished a quilt using some of the vintage sheet fabric from your swap, it's here: http://bellgirl.com.au/2010/09/grans-pink-and-gold-quilt-complete.html
