It has an inscription for someones birthday & the date 1956. As much as I love to find books not written in, it is rather lovely to get a book that was given a long time ago with love.
How spunky is this mens pants pattern?? I think it is more the paisley print on the pants that makes this pattern - Mr Spunky is rather conservative with his dressing & would never in a million years wear these pants - but I just couldn't resist the pattern - they look just so funky - I love them!!

I know a rather odd name, but Em named him. This was just a quick whip up this morning - Em did the stuffing (her favourite part) with a little help from mummy. It was our first attempt & he needs a bit of tweaking (and much neater sewing), but he is dearly loved already.

The first picture, although it is the back of the dress, is actually the front - she had it on backtofront & wouldn't take it off (at least she likes it!!).
Hopefully tonight I will finish off some boys shorts & maybe if I am lucky a skirt or 2!
Hope you are all haveing a lovely weekend - although cool the sun is out & is beautiful!!

The singlet applique looks a little puckered, but it needed to be slightly looser when unstretched so that it would move with the fabric (bonds singlet).

The skirt is reversible & is differet at each sides. It fits me well, but I am tossing up whether to sell it on Etsy or keep it for me... decisions, decisions - life is tough with these sort of things don't you think :) !!
Sorry - the loose threads are not part of the design :) !!
The top was just trying out a pattern & am rather happy with the fit - it is one of those tops which hides a multitude of sins - like the packet of timtams I ate ALL by myself - no I honestly didn't eat them ALL !!
