After finishing my own bubba's blockout curtain #1 ready to hang, I pulled out my Ottobre magazines ready to make up a cute pair of overalls that would be the perfect size for him. However on closer inspection the little overalls had a sewn crotch rather than snaps there. Sure I could modify it, but it was already 10pm, I hadn't even drafted the pattern, and I was in no mood for modifying patterns to watch it all go wrong due to being so tired.
So out came the baby shoes pattern again. I just love it. So quick to make and so gratifying as they are just too cute for words. And this time I decided to use the beautifully soft suede that one of my due in December forum buddies sent me last time she spied baby shoes on my blog. She had a whole heap of scraps given to her, not big enough for much else except baby shoes and maybe teddybear paw pads, but oh so soft and a gorgeous colour, and perfect for the shoes! I love stroking the soles of these shoes, just so nice to touch!
I had the shoes made by 11:30 and then waddled off to bed, thinking I'd grab a little white gift box on the way to the party and tie it with a nice blue ribbon. But the 4:30am loo stop woke me up, and suffering "pregnancy back" I tossed and turned and couldn't get back to sleep. SO what is one to do at a quarter to six when the house is all quiet? Head to the sewing room to applique a onesie of course! Luckily I had a 00 in my box of things to embellish as little Lachlan is already nearing the 3m mark - it has been a while since I've been able to catch up with the Mums due to work.
So here is what I will be giving Lachlan's mummy today. I hope it's a hit!
