howdy, I got loads done this weekend. I’m on a bit of a sewing kick for my boys at the moment. I feel like I make so much that leaves this house I should make the occasional thing for them too.
So I made some pants
They are made out the most lovely light steely blue thick corduroy and the red trim has little cowboys on bucking horses. Oh how I wish I bought more of that fabric.
I also made Cadel this little “man bag”. We are going on holiday at the end of the month and be darned if I am going to carry his 10 engines and Thomas books in my handbag. I used the “child’s messenger bag” pattern from One Yard wonders. I changed it slightly and I think there was a mistake in the pattern which meant a little blue language. It turned out great and Cadel loves it. He choose the train print linen I was trying to encourage him to go with Robots but he was rather insistent.
Cadel was so excited that he had to wear his new outfit out visiting this afternoon.
I also made some of my new bear softie which I hope to have photographed soon, and started some pjamas for the boys as well.
Also we are now the proud owners of a slow cooker. It had its maiden voyage on friday with Beef Stroganoff which was amazingly good, super easy, and I made enough for three meals (hurrah!). I think its going to make my cooking life alot easier.
How was your weekend
