DIY tutorial for Easy boys pirate costume (under £7)

Me an my little boy are going to a Pirates & Princess' party this weekend, very exciting! This post will be about how I created his costume and I will do another post about how I did my Princess Jasmine costume (yes i am getting dressed up to!!!)

Please note when I say under £7 It is because I tried to use what I already had as much as possible. I bought the red t-shirt, stripey tights and skull patch from ebay which came to £6.50 the rest of the stuff I already had and you probably will to!

Pillowcase dress/ bloomers/ drawstring bag

I've been a busy bee this week sewing a little outfit for my niece's Birthday, she is the big 2 today!

Pillowcase dress

green gingham bloomers with matching ruffle headband

drawstring gift bag to present the outfit in
Probably can't see from the picture but the floral fabric has green flowers on, so the bloomers compliment the dress very well. I will definitely be making more baby/toddler outfits! Really enjoyed this project and i'm really pleased with the outcome.

Fabric finds!

Was delighted to find these 3 fabrics in a charity store yesterday got them all for £4! Hmmm what to do with them!!


Madeleine mini bloomers

So this was on one of my first projects on my new sewing machine! Really pleased with how they turned out, can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can start wearing them! I used the free pattern from coletterie.com


Been a while...

Apologies for long absence, been having major Macbook issues and had a very hectic Christmas/New year!! But i'm back with a brand new sewing machine and this gorgeous book from Liberty with lots of beautiful sewing projects, Can't wait to get started on some and share with you all.
