Here is a little summery skirt that took maybe half an hour to make. Was really simply made, two squares of pretty fabric, hemmed up one side, made a casing at the top of skirt, threaded the elastic through, then hemmed the bottom and remaining side.
The very simple elasticated waist.
The dungarees I made, or rather, attempted to make for Master Poppins did not turn out quite so well. No pattern and not a very co-operative child and well, they weren't the best and definitely 20 sizes too small for him. I left them half finished.
Vintage & Cosy gave me the brilliant idea of buying a cheap pair from the CS and then rip them to use as a pattern.
Gladly they are off to a new home so the fabric can at least be used for something more useful than what I had made :)
As for goodies to show you, I found these in the sales.
A couple of rolls of CK wrapping paper.
A bag for Master Poppins.
A bag for Miss. Poppins.
A couple of lovelies to add to their collection.
Two marvellous children's book, The Little Prince which also includes the wonderful history behind the book and author. I purchased it for 25p and it is a wonderful story, and one I think every child should have on their bookshelf.
I was amazed at the price that was originally paid for it
The message of the child with the golden hair managed to reach out and touch people all over the world.
I also couldn't leave her behind, though paid a little more for her, she was worth it though, look at her lovely slip jacket and inside cover.
We had seen Green Gates Mr. Snake for a while, he was always there looking at me when I browsed in a lovely shop I love to visit. I wanted to bring him home so much, yet he was a little pricey. Imagine my delight when he had been reduced, I was so happy, we all love Mr. Snake and he always brings a smile to our faces when we play with him :)
Hope you are having a happy week :)
