I wanted to make a little dress for Evie (for next summer) out of this unicorn fabric from Modern Retro Fabrics, but didn't have quite enough. I found a fat quarter of orange full moon fabric by Amy Butler in my stash, just perfect for contrasting sleeves. It's been too hot to do much, so I whipped it up while Liv slept yesterday. It's the first time I've sewed with double gauze, I didn't realise it's actually 2 layers of gauze fuzed together. Not so easy to sew as it tends to stick to itself, but anyway, I'd like to make another one in the princess and the pea print as well.

And here is my third batch of palm oil free soap, Lavender & Oats.

Organic denim pants now in shop

On Etsy
They look much better in person...
Sorry about the sideways shots, they sometimes have a mind of their own.

Kinder & new organic denim pants

Evie's off to kinder again today, for her first day with all of the class of 20. She only had to go for one day last week, but for the full 2 1/2 hours with 10 children. She still didn't want to come home afterwards, so she seems to be enjoying herself!

She went camping with my parents for a couple of nights on the weekend in Torquay, so I had some extra time to whip up some pairs of pants from organic cotton denim from Organic Fabric Online.
2 pairs for Evie (one plain pair, one red birch tree print), and 2 pairs for the Etsy shop, I'll upload later when the sun's in the right position for outside photos.

Kinder days

Evie started Kindergarten this week, with enrolment day on Monday ( mummy and daddy got to stay with her), then her first session yesterday where I had to leave her. She was fine thankfully, and didn't want to go home (it was only an hour!). So she goes for her first full session on Monday (2 1/2 hours), but with only half the class of 20. I don't have any photos, the memory card is not in the camera :( Will update next week.
