Hello again my friends and family
I have recently felt like getting back into a bit more sewing and have lots of interesting material
A dear friend's daughter had a baby last Friday so thought I could make a hat and a bib to give to her to pass on ☺
Chose my pattern yesterday which can be found on the fleecefun.com
While looking through my sewing supplies I came across this totally unwound hemming tap....ugh
Manually wrapped it up again and don't want to have to do that again......
Now this material was just me testing the pattern, but who knows some lucky baby may get this hat lol
After sewing I decided to do another in black to make this hat reversible
Cut it out
Folded in half and sewed the slanted edge
Then sewed from one side of the hat to the other
2 hats,now to join them
I sewed them right sides together and left a gap so I could then turn it right way around
Put the black inside the skull hat and stitched around the edge
All complete and pretty happy, can have the black edge showing or
Edge straight down, very happy with this ☺
And look! The king parrots are back.....so colourful and they love this little tree in the yard just the same as the Jay does....this is the boy
There is the girl, she looks a bit scared, but I did just use my zoom not wanting to disturb them
There were three pairs ☺
And today I completed this cute bib
With towelling on the back and baby can wear it either side, fully reversible
Oh and this is for me to wear to bed....I added some purple sleeves to this loved t-shirt so I can be warm at night
Just sewed a longer sleeve and zig zagged it all together
And here is the cat hat....they barrack for a team called Geelong and also know as the cat's so think they will like this lol
The back of the cat has a different cat and lined this with some stretching black velvet
I also made this little bag to put the bib and hat in instead of wrapping paper
Make it easy to hand to my friend this Friday ☺
And I even whipped up a pair of pyjamas pants for me......
And look it is cute birds, not skulls or bats .........
Hope you enjoyed seeing my bit of sewing and it is a good reminder for me to look back when I make more of the items.
take care and see you again soon xoxo
