Signy have a giveaway on her blog and you can win this:

Linea train outfit

I enjoyed to make this set with a sweater and pants. Fabric from cheto interlock. The pattern for the pants is from this website. I made it in size 98, and they are barely to big but better then to small though . And I had to make a matching sweater. Next time the neck-rib and waist-rib more thigh. I find it differcult to measure out the rib for wrists and ankles, any tip when I don’t have a human to measure? The applique on front and butt is the famous Linea from the early children’s tv that I used to love :)

Lizard MeiTai

This was a gift for a friend.  Couldn’t post it before she got it of course ;) I like to give something that I use a lot my self.  Inside it is a lining with jeans to make it strong. It fits my 3 months  very well in frog position and hopefully she can use it up to 1-2 years.  The straps are made of cord and this prevent it from slippering.

Orange dream skirt

I have been working on this pattern on half circle skirt. This is made from a 70 duvet cover, inside it have lining in soft cotton, ribknit around belly for optimal fit and comfort.
Size: 5-6 years(US 4),( EUR116). Max hip width  64cm. Lenght 50 cm. This will be for sale in my store :)

Making a tree-Tskirt

The summer is almost over but the kindergarden have those nice planning days. Well since my son love to be home (and go nuts on the walls), I have to do somthing. And I got an idea! This is what you need to make a tree-tskirt:

  • A bored 2 year old child or older
  • Fabric-paint
  • A blank white T-skirt in the size you want to make
  • Some scrapfabric for the tree
  • Plastic
  • Coverup for the child and table
  • (Sewingmachine)

Put a plasticlayer inside of the t-skirt (Showing on top here for cutting)

Then the fun part start. First take your child hand and trace around on the back of the tree-fabric. I used the left hand to get the right hand when i turn it.

Fold the t-skirt and tape it to the table

ooh the fun part for your child, fingerpainting the leaves. Pour out the painting on the side and let your child be creative. A little help is needed if he/her is a little young, but let he/her do most of the work!

We used three colors, green, red and yellow. Don’t do it too much, it get fast too messy and brown, and you don’t want a withered tree do you? So this is enough:

Optional: Then we used a butterflystencil and painted on some butterflyes around the tree :)

Nice :)

So go and wash your child before he/her paint the walls and the couch. Now while it dryes you can cut out the tree you traced

Applique the tree on the shirt, use som stablisator under and sew it on. Optional you can trace the tree after the painting and paint it with black or brown. Iron the painting so the colour don’t go off when you wash ;)

Sign it with your child name and year(use textilemarker). A perfect gift for the dad or someone else in your family.
