You may have noticed a new button on the right hand side bar 'Softies for Christchurch NZ'. Leonie, from New Zealand, has been organising this softie drive to make softies for the children affected by the recent earthquake in Christchurch. So I've jumped on board and have made these little guys to send to the kids.
On a lighter note, I have been very busy sewing for my kids too. I haven't sewn clothes for them for ages - so I got out some material I'd had stashed away and made some pajama's, pants and then shortened a few pants into shorts for both of them. It was fun - and the kids had to wear them straight away - so were very happy with them!
My daughter also attended her friend's birthday on the weekend and asked me to make a doll for her. So I made 'Mae' by 'Bit of Whimsy Dolls'. for her too. I do love this pattern as it is such a sweet doll and looks so different in different fabrics and colours. It's also a really nice, easy pattern to follow.
I've also put my name down for the next Friday Night Sew In which is this Friday the 18th of March. So sign up and make yourself comfy and join in and get some of those unfinished projects completed. See you there!
