Baby or toddler shoe in action

Baby or Toddler Shoes – are you a sewing nerd like me?

So…

Are you a sewing nerd like me?

I found myself today, standing in front of the baby shoe section at the shops, there was a pair in my daughters size, they were perfectly presentable, and they were on special for $6.75. Instead of buying them however,I decided to spend the only available ‘baby sleeping time’ today making some instead.

What can I say, I am a sewing nerd, I have no logical justification for making these shoes, and I have no excuses that you can use either, but if you would like to have a go, the pattern is here and the instructions are below 🙂

Super quick and easy up-cycled toddler tracksuit – PART 1 Tracksuit Pants

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.
