Hello there! Thanks for stopping by...
I have been busy lately working on many projects and I've been lucky enough to have plenty of time to dedicate to getting crafty. I bought a typewriter a couple of weeks ago. I haven't used it a huge amount so far but I've got it in mind for some labels and other little projects.
Next weekend is my little sister's baby shower. I've only ever been to 1 baby shower before and seen one on an episode of Kath and Kim ages ago (noice!). I have been organising games and food ideas and have been getting quite in to it really; thinking of decoration ideas and cute little details. I've got the food ideas sorted and will be getting to work on making the things I can freeze this weekend in an attempt to be organised and not leave everything to the very last minute, which is my usual style!
As a gift for the baby shower I've been sewing a little (and I mean little) gift. It is beyond cuteness and I know my sis will love it. Who couldn't?

I got all the patterns from other blogs and have been really pleased with the results. The dress was from smashedpeasandcarrots and the directions were extremely easy to follow. I was really happy with the result. The nappy / diaper cover was from here. It looks so easy but it was quite tricky to make. I don't have an overlocker / serger so I had to do a bit of extra fiddling when making the leg holes. They turned out well though and I'm sure the next time I make them they'll be easier. The shoes were from here and I LOVE them. They are so so small as the pattern said size 0-3 months and I wanted them from birth so I made them a tiny bit smaller than suggested. I will definitely use all of these patterns again, I was really impressed to find them for free on the net and was chuffed with how they turned out. I think they make lovely ideas for gifts for friends' babies (is it me or do there seem to be a LOT of girls being born just at the moment?)
Hope you're having a great weekend!
