8. Kids Clothes Week Day 1
It's day one of Kids Clothes Week and I've started with the skirt from the Oliver + S Sunday Brunch pattern. I have an idea for a skirt, and wanted an A-line pattern to base it on. I purchased the digital version of this last night from the Oliver + S website and now I'm about to make a toile using this cute embroidered fabric before I get stuck into the real deal. Of course, I have discovered I have no matching thread so I'm off to the local fabric shop with three kids, just as soon as Amélie wakes from her nap.
How is this for a happy mail day? No bills (always a good start) and a trifecta of little goodies for me! Some snow pea seeds from Yates, a New Look pattern from Patternplus (thanks Lara for sharing this store - my pattern was only $4.80 inc postage) and a copy of the Homespun magazine in which my snakes & ladders project is featured.
