Humpty Dumpty

April 01, 2012

I've been rather absent from Blogland lately but have a sweet creation to share.  I made this cute little top for Juliette from some great nursery rhyme fabric I picked up at Spotlight last week (for only $10.49 per metre I should add).
I only bought 30 cm of it and another print (The three little pigs) as I was being very controlled and did not have a project in mind. Because there was not quite enough length in that to make a top, I added the red and cream trim to the bottom which I think works nicely!  I traced the pattern from a sweet top a friend gave us for Emily and enlarged it.
Juliette is looking so grown up - I can't believe she will be turning two in a month's time.
The 'big girls' enjoying exploring Montsalvat this morning on an expedition with 'Nanny England' (Stefan's Mum is staying with us for a month visiting from the UK).  We've never visited there before - a really lovely spot for breakfast and an explore around the beautiful grounds.
