Under Instruction

Tuesday, 17 January 2012

My mojo has up and disappeared.  I think it's a combination of returning to work (when hubby and kids are still on holidays) and Melbourne's recent cold snap.  I just can't work up any enthusiasm for the 3 items I have cut out.

Good thing that someone in our house wants to sew.

For the past few lots of school holidays I've been telling Caitlyn that I'd teach her how to sew, we'd even gone as far as selecting some rather wild quilting cotton from my stash.

She did all the work while I provided the instructions and she's done a really good job.  These are the Little Nighty Night Pattern by Favorite Things in the size 13/14.  We've used it before and have found the pj shorts really good.  I think she's quite impressed with herself because she's worn them every night since she made them. 

Thanks for all the undies love - I'm still ridiculously pleased with them.  A couple of people asked what fabric I used, it was all nice quality cotton/elastin that I had in the scrap bag and stash.

Hopefully I can kick start the mojo and get sewing again because there's so much I want to do.

Great shorts.

Hope your mojo returns soon, but I can understand why it has disappeared.

Soon you will need your own machine, poor Dad, next you will need 2 sewing rooms.......

Such cute shorts, and she looks rightfully proud of herself!
