Polka dots and pretty pinafores!

I’ve been really getting my ‘sew’ on in the last couple of weeks.

I made another skirt (this time for my own daughter!) from this awesome skirt pattern. If you’re interested, you can see the others that I made here.

With the leftover fabric, I thought it would be so nice to have a little headband. I mostly followed this tutorial. We’re going to make these in playgroup soon!

Ok, I know that’s quite a few pictures… but just call me a proud mummy.

Another fantastic tutorial I found was for this pinafore. I love it. It’s so easy to throw over leggings and a plain onesie to brighten up this little girl! I took Adella back to the fabric market the other day, wearing the blue pinafore, and showed the lady from whom I’d bought the material. She loved it!

For those of you living in Beijing, the blue fabric, as well as both linings was bought at the Dongsi fabric market. Details here and here. I much prefer this one over Muxiyuan – to save both time and stress. It is, of course, much smaller, but they have a great range of things.

The owl fabric was bought from this taobao shop. They also have a great range of oilcloth (my next project).

Thankyou again to all the clever people out there who provide me with cool projects, patterns and tutorials from the interweb!!
