Well we are in the new house!! Very exciting. have been in for 5 weeks - been a very busy 5 weeks though, still quite alot to be done around here but feeling a bit more like a home.
I am taking part in KCWC this time and although most of the bloggers on the other side of the world are making Spring clothes I am making lots of warm winter stuff for the boys. I was away on a craft retreat for the weekend and got lots of stuff for the boys made so I have lots to share this week.
First up- The Robot Top.
This is an Ottobre pattern, whichI have been eyeing up ever since I got these cool robot buttons from the lovely Nicci of Buttons by Benji. I am really happy with the way it turned out. It is made from a lovely thick cotton Lycra for the body and another stripy cotton lycra for the arms and a cotton rib for the cuffs and binding. I plucked up courage to do buttonholes which I am not overly fond of doing and seem to only do at craft retreats. The robot is an embroidery design that my friend Claire did on her embroidery machine. I appliquéd it on.
Of course Charlie could only keep it clean for so long. Typical boy.
