I found a fabby skirt in a bag of stuff from freecycle which me and tea690 shared. it didnt happen to fit my little sister though, so I used one triangle to patch one of my hippy-type tops and the rest was made into this:

it has a nice big pocket for sophie to put things in. she's already discovered it. I found it full of hairbands, clips and even a toy car last night.



and i even did a bit of embroidery on the pocket

I love making clothes for soph. they're small so I don't get bored!! :lol: :lol:

here are her jammies made out of some sheeting offcuts.

she also has a sundress which I'm sure is somewhere on this site already 'cos I was so proud of it. :oops:
oh how I love my tea, tea in the afternoon. I can't do without it, and I think I'll have another cup very
ve-he-he-he-heryyyyyyy soooooooooooon!!!!
