A friend of mine recently commissioned a few pieces of clothing for her nieces/nephews/cousins and as I love her dearly I was more than happy to oblige – it also meant a fabric and thrift shopping trip with one of my favourite ladies, a double win if you ask me!
After much parousing of Pinterest and Etsy we chose the Lucy Tunic for her 6 year old cousin. It’s such a cute little dress. We chose two lovely cotton duck, particularly apt as her nickname is Ellie-Elephant.
It could easily be made reversible but we decided not to this time round. It would also look darling as a sleeveless number.
We found the perfect buttons at a thrift shop a few days later – love them.
Whew! Sorry about the radio silence team – we’ve been head down bum up, busy with what has been affectionately coined ‘Renovation Month’. I’ll spare you the details – save that for another day – but it sure is good to have a moment of peace and quiet to gather my thoughts and plan my next crafty adventure. Here’s what’s tickling my fancy at the moment.
Easter is usually a non-event in this household. Having no sprouts of our own yet the level of excitement that usually accompanies Easter Sunday just isn’t up to par.
Luckily, with the influx of nephews, god-children and other scrumptious littlies, all of whom are getting to the age where they understand Easter (or at least the chocolate involved) means that we can contribute something handmade to the occasion.
