It was the first time I ever graded a baby size (and I didn’t had any baby clothes to compare) Honestly baby sizing was a black hole with so many variations as adult clothes. It was a completely ‘blind’, ‘make up as you go along’ experience and learned so much. In the end it is a little bit too long on the body but I think I understood the process.
Baby slash pockets, seriously fun!
Fabric is from Art Gallery Drift by Angela Walters and I used some Brazilian lace.
Stash bursting! I have so many quilting cottons to use. There is a lovely quilting shop near my house and every time I go there to buy some thread or zippers I end up buying at least one fat quarter.
I’m a ‘quilter dreamer’ LOL. You know when you love something, plan, talk about it, follow people, buy all the materials/tools but never get around to actual make it anything.
I linked the art gallery distributors in the UK instead of a particular shop as I feel If you liked that fabric too you may want to find it from a local store. One of the things I love about British culture is the “Shop Local” mentality. Support your high street.
The inside view:
My goddaughter is so adorable. She really cheered me up when I last went to see her.
I was having a terrible week of back problems around Owop week( I end up not sharing my week- no one need to see selfies of me in my handmade pjs for 7 days). Lucky I felt better after rest/ medication/taking things easy and carried on with my life. I cannot control terrible pain episodes but I can control how I can react to it. Another brit thing I have incorporated into my life. ‘Keep calm and carry on’!
