Yes, yes... I know... "where have you been?!"
I needed to step back and enjoy baby Stella. Savor each fleeting second and be in the moment.
This Christmas, the girls were in charge of decorating the tree and did a lovely job while Stella and I took a back seat.
Although spending time with familia and trying to get some sleep here and there, I longed to sew again. At times I would be cradling Stella, standing in a distance, gently rocking back and forth and staring at my sewing machine.
Pathetic, huh? I'm so silly sometimes!
Stella's nearing her 2 month birthday (in two days!) and she's starting to get into a routine. With some help, I was able to get a wee bit of sewing in and look! I managed to make a few things for baby.
I used a pattern from Simplicity for the kimono shirts and the pants were from a pattern in a Japanese craft book I have used before posted here and here. I just added a ruffle detail on the bum. Sooo cute!
Oh happy little Stella!
For the tops, I added a little pocket.
Her little bum makes me smile.
I had extra fabric to make a hat.
I think she likes it!
Ahhh... it was nice to do some sewing. I got my fix,
