    Hi Susan,
    Just wondering if your material selection had any bearing on the fit.
    I have found that not all stretch fabric are the same, some have so much more stretch than others. I made t-shirts for my son when he was young, same pattern different interlock fabric, one fitted great and the other one we couldn’t get over his head. Just a thought. Sherry

    Can anyone tell me what would be the perfect material for nighties and pyjamas in an American winter. The grandchildren will be in New York for christmas and I wasn’t sure how cold or hot it would be in an apartment considering they have central heating.

    I thought flannelette but my granddaughter is always hot, so what about interlock or would…[Read more]

    Oh Sarvi, it was a scorcher. Its just summer coming a bit early, we usually have high 30″s and only a week or two thru the summer in the 40″s. Roll on autumn I say, it does look like we could have a bad bushfire season and not just in NSW. Western Australia has had some very severe fires already. Today its only in the 20’s so time to catch up on…[Read more]

    Helena, I would love to put my hand up for the “textile arts” bits and bobs. I belong to a quilt group that makes quilts and laundry bags for “Aussie Heros” men and women in the armed forces. Each one is made to match their specific favourite things (e.g. camels, football teams etc) and also another group that makes quilts for kids going thru…[Read more]

    @Dubhels2003 There is an Australian pattern company

    http://www.stylearc.com.au

    that has some blouse patterns similar to what you looking for. They also send you a free pattern with each pattern order and their size range goes from size 4 to 30 so covers everyone. I love both blouses particularly the hot pink. Hope you find what you are looking for.

    Thats lovely, I hope Noah enjoyed the march. It is so nice to see the little ones taking such an interest this year. My 7yr granddaughter sang “The Last Anzac” at assembly yesterday, it is such a beautiful song and the words just touched my heart, it is a tribute to Alex Campbell who died not so long ago, but a moving tribute to all soldiers.

    The dog had a slight accident on his bed, so DIL put it all in the front loader washing machine with extra washing liquid, disinfectant etc. Consequently too many bubbles and it was about a foot deep all through the laundry.

    My grandson (4 years old) went passed and yelled out *Ohh no the washing machine has vomitted everywhere”. I can’t walk…[Read more]
