a bit of sewing .....on my desk

Seems like ages since I did some sewing for the kids. This isn't exactly the sewing I really want to do though, it's more for neccesity.

Some new flongies for Asher as his old ones from last winter are absolute ankle bashers. Flongies are fleece longies and are great for over cloth nappies as you don't need a separate cover and they are super warm in this chilly weather.

And a nightie for Tully which could have been absolutley gorgeous except she choose the most hideous material. She looooves princesses and anything that is too pink. A true girl! She needs some new nighties and this pattern is just perfect. I'm making the really long one (even more princess like) and am trying to tone down the overt pinkness by mixing in some pale pink spotty flannel.

I've got one of those princess loving girls too. She's just started to grow out of it - thankfully.

I love those long long nighties...I used to wear them when I was a kid and I remember that they were really warm at night!

A long nightie means you can pull your feet up 'inside' it. I did that!

I like the green ;-)
