A winter wardrobe for Annie


Annie has grown out of most of her warm clothes from last year,
so as I mentioned, I decided to make as much as I could.
I used this pattern from Ruby Jeans Closet and shortened it to top length 
and lengthened the sleeves to make a peasant top.


I embroidered the bird from an old book called Easy Embroidery
by Lis Paludan. I used multi coloured thread, so it's a rainbow bird.
 We were given a pair of jeans, so that will be handy on cold days.



How cute is this outfit?? adorable.


I knitted a hat last year from this pattern by Honeycakes on Felt
using two precious balls of Noro wool my sister gave me.
I finished a wrist warmer I started a year or two ago
and knitted another. It's from lovely merino wool. The scarf was $1 at the opshop.
All the outdoor woolies sorted.


She still fits this amazing coat from Lisa at BigLittle.
Lisa and I did a swap last year, I made a quilt and she made this beautiful coat.
It's more of a jacket this year but still a good fit.
It's made from wool blanket and lined with brushed cotton
and warm as toast.
I popped on two new buttons because we lost one last year.


She's wearing the pj pants I made, and some knitted slippers from the opshop.
They seem to have worked out well. I've been given a pattern,
so I'm going to knit some for Reuben too.


I've got some more things I made I'll photograph another time,
and she has lots of lovely knitting from Clare at Green Valley Crafts.
Clare and I have done a couple of swaps (quilts for knitting)
this is a milo, super useful on autumn days.

It's been so good making things for Annie from what we had here,
and a few trademe purchases. It's going to be lovely seeing her in mama made
most of the time! I'm so glad that I decided when Annie was tiny
to teach myself to sew making her clothes.
I'm definitely getting better at it
