My sewing machine has decided it doesnt want to work.
It has been playing up for a little while and I get so frustrated when I try to sew I end up having a mini tantrum and leaving it to sit by itself for a while......
So when I went to my mum;s place for a week with my little girl I decided to pack fabric, lots of fabric!
I made a window quilt for my girl's room, a sleeping bag for her too and of course lots of other clothes. Since it is getting pretty cold at our place I mostly did pants.....
So I'll shush now and show pics...



I designed these pants with scraps I had lying around. I deemed them MC-Hammerish pants since they have a bit of puff.  Grin



These are my first attempt at lined clothing. They are a thick cotton drill with a lovely thin fleece lining. So soft and warm!





(Of course it is near impossible to get pics of her standing still with her new love of walking everywhere!)

These are just some plain ol leggings but I love the fabric!  Cheesy

(She was stealing her daddy's dinner and was caught off guard when I snapped this one!)
There are more pics on my blog here:

Love all the pants! My wee one is 4 month so she will need goodies like this come Fall. The leggings on your girl look so cute. Can't wait to make lots of fun ones like that for my Quinn. Wink
