Recently I got some new fabric, from Hawthorne Threads and Dots 'n' Stripes Both parcels contained beautiful fabrics but couldn't quite figure where to start with any of it!
I have never purchased so many fabrics at once, and as a result I was a bit overwhelmed by them.
(There are more btw, I'm hoping to make a quilt with the others one day! Ha!)
Finally I found inspiration from the new edition of Ottobre. I made the two babies 'Pumpulipilvi' Tunics from some Anna-Maria Horner Little Folks Voile. It scared me slightly when I handled the fabric before I cut or sewed it, It seemed so delicate, but I have to say, it was lovely to work with. So soft and drapey (is that a word?) It is in the top picture on the top right. The Dots'n'Stripes fabrics are all fine corduroy. I use a lot of these, for all sorts of projects. I have had the teal and the green before. My favouite is the top centre one.
Here are the finished products...............
They were really fun to make, my first attempt at shirring, I think I'm hooked!
Due to a very wet and dreary day, I struggled to get a bright spot inside to photograph them, I thought about taking them outside, but the wind would have swept them away!
One of the Girls is walking a while now (the other is working on it), and I finally got her some shoes. I couldn't resist showing them off... (and my filthy carpet)
How cute are they!? I can't wait until her sister walks and I can choose some equally sweet ones for her!
