Fun B’day ensemble

May 24, 2012

So it was Scooby’s 7th b’day.

and a very Topi (Hat) b’day.

For the hat applique I just googled for “hat images” and took one of the results. Printed ┬áit out. Photo-copied to right size and did the usual applique ritual. Added a button at the top and letter in the centre.

This was to go with her capris. Another Burda pattern

Adjustable waistband

and buttons at the bottom cuff


A very happy b’day girl


A month back I had gone shopping with the objective of buying some leftover yardage for the Travel-colouring-kits for gifts back home…

I did nothing about that. Instead I picked up some fabrics for making a coat and a couple of wintery frocks for Scooby. And, some Burda patterns. Must confess, I have never bought ready-made patterns. Have always drafted my own patterns… not that we get any ready patterns in India.

Could not stop myself from making one more for my niece and dress the cousins alike.

134 cm

And then I had enough fabric to make a toddler dress

and some more to make a pair of toddler dungarees


for the upcoming b’days. Again from some Burda patterns.

Must have really saved on the fabric consumption to get the toddler outfits and still have some left-over to make a pair pants for Uvi. Or the consumption on the patterns was way off!

Anyway, I am done with sewing anything in red!!!
