And to try out my new patterns, a giveaway!

You may end up hearing from me a bit today. After a week of sewing, I'm ready to share all these colours with you!

This week, with the help of this lovely lady:


And armed with these goodies:

(Rice cake to keep Eve happy, hot drinks, chocolate and rotary cutter to keep us happy. Yes, Eve did feel like she drew the short straw!)

I turned this PDF pattern from Sew Sweet Patterns:


Into this!:


I managed to tweak the pattern and make reversible shorts! I know! I'm amazed too!

When I first opened shop, some of the feedback I got was that people couldn't wait till I started making bigger sizes and things for little boys. These shorts go up to size 6! And while looking around Sew Sweet's store, I also purchased these, and would love to make something for you!

a) wrap dress, size 6m to 6yrs, b) romper! size 6m to 6 yrs, c) girls shorts, size 9m to 6 yrs.

The wrap dress and shorts will be reversible. The romper, well, it's cute enough as is, don't you think? I am definitely making one of these for Evie this summer!

So! A giveaway! Leave a comment below for a chance to win one of these outfits (including the boys shorts) made in the size and fabric of your choice. Fabric choices will be from what I have in stock, and I'll do another post in the next day or two to show you all the great prints I have (or are on their way to my house as we speak!) Followers of my blog, or facebook fans get an extra entry. Just leave an extra comment to say you are, or have become, one of these.

A random number generator will pick the winner Tuesday morning, Evie's Sleep Time!

I so love your comments! I read all of them and reply when I can. If you don't hear back, I'm lost under a mound of scraps or outside jumping on the trampoline with the kids. Jodi. xx
