Challenge recap

Last week’s output was spare, but a lot of learning was done on the new serger… I used a number of tutorials and patterns. The shirts were recycled from old t-shirts, the booties from stashed scraps.

Moseying Along

When little monkey was just born, we had a huge pack and play in our living room where he often slept during the day. This time, there’s no room for such a monster. Inspired by L’e Dans La and Caderno Branco (the latter found via Bloesem Kids) I’ve started to put together a cosy little nest for the little one about to arrive.

Finished the liner and sheet on Friday afternoon, in preparation for the Elsie Marley Challenge this week…

Day 1 was mostly prep-no finished objects but well on the way for a couple tomorrow.

ready set

Here’s what I hope to accomplish this week:
3 newborn t-shirts
2 pairs of newborn booties
1 jersey blanket
2 t-shirts for monkey
and maybe a crib skirt…
