Boys pants

I recently stumbled over Ottobre designs and loved their kids clothing. 
They have an option to print out free designs for embroidery and to sew onto clothing for boys and girls. 
I have had these printed out for a while now and finally got some time on Friday to make up a nice pair of pants in green and white stripe seersucker fabric.

I just used a pair that fits at the moment and traced the size and then just adjusted the length.

 I then used the owl design from their website and although they say you don't have to sew over the design i did secure it with a decorative stitch. I know how may times i am going to wash these.

I love the result and will use this technique again.

Sweet orange hat.

I just finished this great hat for my little one last night. I could not wait for her to wake up and try in on. (see the first image of her eating breakfast with the hat on!)

I used my basic hat pattern and just measured her head to get it right. 
It took a few tries as it was not so easy to figure out where to take away and when it was too much. 
Fabric choice was hard but I love the fabric we chose(yes Mike was roped in).

The under brim fabric is blue and off-white and I just cut a strip of fabric and sewed it onto the hat in a shape of a flower.

The brim also has decoration around it that just gives it a finished look.

One thing I did notice during the day was that it moves around but the hat still looks good no matter how it sits on her head!
