I am the mother of two adorable girls, and two little babies. I started sewing for them, and got hooked!
This blog is to share my crafty experiences with you!
Hope you enjoy it!

More of Modkid new book...
So,I was able to sit for a little while, and finish the new items that I already started for this great Modkid book.
I made my 5 years old the bubble dress (size 104 cm, but modifies to be much narrower and shorter), and leggings (also size 104, the fit is perfect).
And i made the bubble skirt for my 8 years old. I used the correct sizing for her (132 cm), but it came a bit too wide. Next time I'll make it a size smaller.
An important note, though the pattern calls for stretch fabrics, I thought that for this particular pattern it might work with wovens too. And it did - denim for the belt and cotton for the skirt part.
The girls are happy with their new outfits, and I'm planning more for the summer.
I need to get started with swimming suits, shorts and tops for my 8 years old, a dress for my 5 years old... and hopefully a new outfit for each baby for their coming birthday!! (Yes, they will be one year old in two and a half months!!!).
In the meantime I knit a little bit, since sitting at the sewing machine is still difficult. And from work they sent a laptop home... no more free time, I am getting back to work...
hope to make some progress this week!
