UFO's, Spring Cleaning and a Give Away (or three).11:07 am
So, the slight turn in the weather, the lighter evenings and the easing of my morning sickness all mean I'm feeling the urge to clear up and organise. (Not to mention the distraction from thinking about Florence's Inquest coming up this week.)
I sorted through my UFO box yesterday, and re discovered these little dresses I started to experiment with ages ago. I remember abandoning the project in favour of more urgent sewing,and because I wasn't entirely happy with the way they were going. Looking at them again with fresh eyes I can see that the pattern itself isn't really too bad, and I might return to working with it again.
Meanwhile, though these little dresses are not entirely successful, they are quite cute and it occurred to me that rather than chuck them in my rag bag, somebody out there might actually like them for their little one. (I could be really wrong about this though.)
Anyhow, both dresses are simple A line pinafores that fasten at the back with snaps (I've yet to add these, but I will do before I pass them on to anyone.). I think they'd look cute over a long sleeve t shirt or turtleneck over leggings or jeans, or even with just tights...they are short dresses, kinda 70's style, but that makes them ideal for crawlers.
Both dresses are sized to fit 6-12 month olds.
(And I should warn you, the colours might possibly run in the wash, so a colour catcher sheet would be a good idea.)
Hmmm, not sure I've really convinced anyone here!
Anyway, not to leave out the boys, I also found these half finished bibs. I just need to add snaps, and they are ready to use.
So, if you would like either dress or the set of bibs just leave me a comment telling me which one you'd like, and I'll pick a winner by the end of the week. Give away open to everyone who reads, I don't mind posting internationally.
While I have your attention, I also have in my UFO box several ready to sew lunch bags, and I really can't be arsed sewing them, so wondered, do you think they'd be worth giving away? The instructions to make them are right over there on the left hand side of my blog.(you might need to scroll down a bit) Just a thought...think I might have to ask people to pay postage for those though...pondering.
Let me know what you think please?
