Life story - the short version

I'm a fun loving 30 something year old . Married my favourite guy. Started on my production of children & number 1 is an adorable boy. Big on family. Big on craft. Love country music. Love fuss free + practical ...aaand maybe with just a little bow for decoration!

Love the law of attraction too. And singing ...dancing ...bright colours and excessive punctuation ...and stationery.

Making boys' shorts for our boys

My friend asked me to show her how to make some shorts for her little cutie pie, and we made a few pairs together. We decided to make matching singlets as well!

Here is the first one I got finished, I don't have a photo with it on my son sorry.

These are pretty simple seeing as they're loose and no 'fitting' is required, but I must be honest and say I read over this tutorial to refresh my memory before heading up to Ally's and cutting out her cute knits.

Here is the other one that I got a few good shots of...

The first look at the penguins. So cute! Spot the handmade quilt and wipes cover in the background. I didn't mean to include them :-P

Then we headed outside for better pictures.

You can see that I put elastic on the bottom seams of the shorts. My boy wont be a baby for much longer and I just like the bunched look whilst he can still get away with it :-)

You can see his mind ticking over, here. This was right before he tasted the flower, and horrible Mummy took it away. Resulting in this....

Naw I think he's cute no matter what he does. The poor model, life's clearly SO tough!
And a shot with a toy I don't mind him tasting...
