    I sorted through my almost four year old’s clothes the other day and realised that once I take out everything that doesn’t fit anymore she is left with very little in her dresser and wardrobe!

    So… I quickly made her a couple of pairs of playtime leggings and started on a sweatshirt using the school bus tee pattern. My first attempt (school bus…[Read more]
