I made it myself

Not to be outdone by his older brother, Louis decided he wanted to make something - so he made a t-shirt for himself.

He drew a design on a piece of fabric using fabric marking pens and we bonded it on and blanket stitched around it. It's a van with roof racks on top (that's his latest fascination). With a bit of encouragement he drew on a tree (far left), a stream, some flowers and a sun. He's pretty chuffed with it!

I haven't blogged much lately. I'm in a panic about Christmas and find I don't have time to blog cause I'm concentrating all my energy into faffing about. I need to get inspired, and quickly cause Christmas is almost here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope you are all happy and well.

Wow - so much talent in one little family!

Speaking of sewing, I have a See and Sew book for you from the library - vintage sewing activities to do with kids! I'll drop it round when
I come to see Em's new room :)

Well, the Christmas tree went up last night, so I can no longer pretend that Christmas is far away! Before I panic, I pretend. Okay, time to panic!

Fantastic T shirt! but Oh dear don't let Christmas beat you, ha! Breathe's not important...whereas faffing...well that kinda is important and fun...if only there wasn't the deadline. =) x
