Reversible pinafore dress
During the last few weeks I’ve finished a few more sewing projects. For my baby daughter I’ve made a pinafore dress which can be turned inside out. The fabric is bought from ‘GJ Discount Fabrics’ in Brunswick East. They have an amazing selection of beautiful patterned fabrics. To make the pattern I’ve traced an old dress and cut two pieces of both the front and the back part.

My son is addicted to matchbox cars. I’ve been wanting to make a play mat for a while for these cars which can be turned into a bag so that he can store some of his favourite cars when we go somewhere. This is what I came up with.

CERES

CERESOn Wednesdays if the weather allows it we like to visit CERES Community Environment Park in Brunswick East. Every Wednesday they usually have a band playing next to the cafe in the organic fruit and veggie market. My toddler loves playing with the toy trucks spread out in the park, check out the chickens and sip a babychino at the cafe.

It’s always annoyed me that I never seem to find the suitable knitting needle when I need it. To easier find and also keep my knitting needles together I’ve designed this knitting needle (and other knitting equipment) holder. The fabrics are from Spotlight (Melbourne), Stoff & Stil (in Norway) and GJ Discount Fabrics in Brunswick East (Victoria, Australia).

I’ve also completed a few more knitting projects. Mittens for my baby daughter and her little cousin. I’ve also knitted a cute little hat for her as the winter is fast approaching and we’ve had some cold mornings walking the oldest one to school.

My baby girl has had a few days with better sleep (even during the day!) and her mamma has finally been able to finalise a few knitting projects, for instance this jacket. Found a picture of the beautiful jacket on Posie Gets Cozy’s blog. The pattern is available for free on Garnstudio.no’s web site.

If you are looking for free knitting patterns, check out Pickles.no (English patterns at the bottom of the right hand side). Heaps of wonderful knitting patterns where lots of the patterns are available for free for certain sizes. Would like to knit this beautiful baby outfit.

Finally finished my latest project; a hot air balloon mobile for the nursery for my 9 week old baby. The template I’ve used is from this lovely web site called “How Joyful”.
