    Glad to hear that we’re treating our kids perhaps more thoughtfully than we were treated as tots.

    Alas, I couldn’t find the tracing for the bubble so I used another I had handy and winged it a bit. We’ll see how it comes out!

    Off to peep at Sweet Pea!

    Currently sticking bits of monster on fabric! The shorts were another muff that have to be undone at some point – I put the facing for the back piece round the wrong way!

    So it on with the monsters, cars, robots and worry dolls!

    Oh bother. Nothing worse than unpicking.

    I tried to make my unpicking bearable tonight by hiring a DVD and doing it in front of the telly. So now my School Days Coat in brown wool is washed, dried and has had all the rubbish leather thonging replaced. It is now ready to be handed down to my little nephew.

    I dislike unpicking. I seem to have to unpick more when I sew when the kiddos are wake.

    Today onto a baby love! A School days coat, a Tea party pants suit, a Field trip tee, a LTTS cozy hat and matching mittens. I have some very lovely think plaid flannel from my grandmother I will be useing for the coat outside and the lining for the Tea party suit. ( I got this idea from Cindy!) I will be drafting pattterns today and cutting out the main outift and hopefully have the play suit sewn together by my bed time.

    I made a bib from LTTS for my neice. I shortened it a little since she is only 5 months. It was my first time working with iron on laminate. Such fun! I wonder if anyone has tried machine washing laminate. It says hand wash, but I wonder if it would be okay.

    I also made a thifted t-shirt into a hopscotch dress. The front yoke seam came out wonky. I think it was the super soft stretchy knit. It had spandex in it, and my machine did not love sewing it. Luckily it is a black and white stripe. The pattern hides a lot of wonkiness.

    After a fairly long hiatus from sewing clothes I have started a pair of pink Field Trip trousers in twill. Now while pink and cargo pants may sound like an oxymoron I am still trucking through.

    I would like to make some shirts for Sofia as well (I have almost given up on sewing for Isabel as she is 1: Too big for the O+S patterns and have been for a while and 2: completely impossible to please, even when she is involved in *every* step) and I have an uncomfortably long list of wants-to-do in my head.

    But I’m starting with the trousers and next is a purse for my make up. I need to be better about mixing it up with selfish sewing.

    I finished blogging Zara’s Christmas Fairy Tale dress and I am on to the Vintage floral version that you lovely ladies were so helpful in the fabric choice.

    I have made a start on my Traveller shirt,a very natty pattern.

    Elsa’s fabrics are pre-washed and waiting but Liddy’s 9th Birthday is looming so I may have to jump her up the list.

    I would love to make her a cake like the one Sharon made for Sweet Pea,does anyone know a tute?

    Nicole,

    Look on pintrest maybe, if not I could put one together. All it is just like doing a cupcake swirl but “flat” (not going on top of the frosting layers as you go.) Before you make the roses though frost the cake so there are so see through spots. I’l have to look in a bit.

    Still cutting – I got too involved with DVR’d Downton Abbey to do much last night! Finishing the last tonight then the decision of which to sew first!

    Eager to check out the cake tute as well, thanks for the link, Sharon!

    Finished the dyed dress, I think. I still might want to add a lace panel across the neckline, which is too low, while the rest of the proportions seem fine, though the overall fit is a bit big. It’s been nice having a practice dress to try out lots of things — making a narrow hem, thread bars for button loops, dip dye and indigo, tiny shank buttons. I would definitely like to try again with the Bubble bodice (found the tracing!) since I know the fit is right.

    hey nicole i did a cake kinda similar style for my little one’s 1st birthday last year here

    i linked to the cake that inspired it on that picture- she had a tutorial on her blog on how to pipe the roses… i used a different icing recipe so my roses weren’t as crisp as those in the inspiration…

    Maggie I’m yet to make the LTTS to sew bib but I had my first play with iron on laminate doing the Bento Box, It is fun isn’t it!

    I wouldn’t machine wash the bib as we had some that we’d bought for our kids and the vinyl cracked and peeled off after a few machine washes. Just wipe down with a sponge or hand wash if really needed.

    Nicole, I made that rose cake for Sofia’s birthday last year, it’s easy peasy – the piping I mean. I didn’t go all the way with gradient coloured cake.

    The I am Baker-link Rastis posted is the “original” I think. Go for it!
