Saturday night I was home alone with the girls, while hubby went to see his beloved Sydney Swans play in Melbourne.
With the kidlets in bed (always early when dad isn’t here), I decided to make the most of the quiet and do a little sewing.
Having three girls, we have endless boxes of clothes. Every size between newborn and 6/7. This year, for the first time, we have hit a snag. Our little Maggie, who is 7 months, doesn’t have any really warm clothes for winter.
Odd? Not when you learn our two older girls spent their first Winters in Perth…. Arrggghhh I feel warm just thinking about it.
Poor little Maggie is spending her first Winter at our new home in country Victoria. It is starting to get cold. Not just a little bit cold. Bone chilling cold.
On the weekend I opened my lousy bags and spent $8. I know, I went all out. And bought this.
Apart from being extremely pink, it’s a bit boring.
With a little bit of pottering and the same applique technique I used to do the towels, I turned the above tracksuit into this.
