Door 7 – No, thank you

IMG_1344I have finished the very colourful dungarees for my son yesterday.

He had been very interested in the whole sewing process and found the fabric pretty but when I asked him if he would like to put them on, he said – with a little wave of his hand – “no thank you”. Well I guess, at least he is a very polite young man 🙂

Anyway, after all those pretty skirts and dresses for my daughter, I had to try to make something pretty for him too and I can tick this one off my list.

Today and tomorrow will be all about baking (apart from updating my shop). The dough for the gingerbread is already in the fridge, and the finished nuts triangles fill the house with a beautiful smell.

Door 5 – Trying to be fair or A long day ahead

IMG_1342Today will be all about sewing. My son is always jealous of my daughters colourful dresses and skirts and I have to admit I have been sewing and knitting much more things for her than for him.

So I will be making him dungarees out of the most colourful corduroy I could find in the fabric shops in Shepherds Bush. It was not easy, there is really not much for boys.

I am using a pattern from farbenmix . They have beautiful things there, patterns from independent designers with lots of support on their website, ribbons,…

I have recently started a sewing class on Thursdays where you sew your own project and the teacher will support you with whatever you need. I have already prepared a bit at home to get as much as possible done in the class.
And hopefully my son will be happy with it. Oh and guess what, my daughter has already announced that she wants dungerees as well… just to be fair 🙂
