Kids Duds & a Skirt for Me!

Well the title pretty much says it all. I have been trying to get some winter clothes made for the kids - well pants anyway - these are just 2 pairs I have finished of late. I have also made up some flannel jammie pants & have a couple more cut out.
This is a wrap skirt I made up from the "Make it Perfect - Versitile Wrap" pattern. Once you drafted the pattern it was really quite simple & I like the cut. I am sure the instructions are good - I just didn't read them - I am terrible if I think I know how it goes together I just do it, I find it hard to follow instructions if I already have an idea in my head - sometimes it works & other times I am glad there are instructions to fall back on :)

The clothesline is full....

Now that the sun has decided to come out after a few weeks of rain, I have finally caught up on about 10 loads of washing & was able to wash some of my recent op shop goodies.... I know these really should have been my first priority with washing, but I can't quite picture Mr Spunky being too thrilled if I handed him a vintage sheet Toga to wear to work :)
I just need to figure out what I am going to make with them. The trucks & trains are earmarked for some boys pants or shorts.

Easter & 6 years on....

Wow was easter a big day, not only did the easter bunny deliver these cuties (and many other chocolate treats), but it was also 6 years since I married my prince charming! The bunnies were made using a tut on the softies blogsite & I added a pocket..
I can't believe how quickly time flies. In that time we have travelled so much, including a 2 year stint in the apple isle, but best of all had 2 little spunky monkies. Thank Mr Spunky for making the last 6 years so wonderful & for allowing me to know I am deeply loved. Oh I better stop before I get really mushy :)

Applique attempts & other bits..

There is a special little girls birthday soon & her mama is a lover of woodland creatures & things, so I made up these 2 little appliqued tops. I am not anywhere near as good as the applique queen (check out Sam'a amazing appliques @ Jettas Nest), but I was quite happy that these guys didn't give me too much grief.
I have been doing a lot of cutting out for stock of my etsy store - I just need to sew it all up & list it ( I get kinda slack at this point). I did finish these 2 pair of flares which I will hopefully list soon.

I may be able to keep this blogsite. Mr Spunky said if I couldn't work the other one that I could stay here - which would be WONDERFUL - I really didn't like the other site - too much advertising for one thing, but mostly because I don't think it liked me (or maybe just the other way around) as nothing seemed to work - posts seemed to disappear, or just not appear at all!

Just a few pics of my hippy girl in a few recent creations. The smock is a MAMU pattern (found at the crafty mamas store) which I made into a one piece pattern - mostly out of being too lazy to cut out 3 pieces - so the one was a better option! The pants are a Studio Tantrum SOLANA (also found at the craftymamas store). Both items have been created from vintage recycled sheets...
