Between the generous bags of hand-me-downs from friends, and the clothes that I make, my kids wardrobes were getting overrun with clothes. Despite this, the kids never seemed to be able to find/put together a respectable outfit. I love my kids (4 and 6 years) having their independence, and being able to express themselves through…
I have had an absolute ball in the studio this week and couldn’t be happier with how this little project turned out. So I thought I would post up a tutorial so you could make one of your own.
If you have a little one in cloth nappies/diapers and you were looking for a natural cover solution you may have come across wool covers (which are fantastic but I won’t go into all the benefits here – google it, you will be amazed) but then been bowled over by the price.
If you would like to have a go at making the cover above, check out my series on drafting a pattern and sewing a wool or fleece nappy cover on my other blog

I was on my way to my workroom this afternoon to get started on the tutorial pictures for a lovely little size one hoodie (which I will get around to so stay tuned), when my husbands bag of clothes for charity caught my eye.
I had a bit of a rummage and found a tracksuit top that I just couldn’t resist doing a conversion on.
I had a play around and it turned out really well so I thought I would share. This is a fun and super easy project – the finished product looks much fancier than the sewing involved.
