Soft wee shoes....
I found this awesome pattern online and gave it a go. So easy! I'm thinking xmas gifts...
These ones are made with old vintage cord fabric

and these I have made with some white cord and scraps from a nappy bag I made a while back :)

It's a great pattern as it's easy adjust the size and also you can use absolutely any fabric.

I took over the lounge and got sewing in the weekend. I am not much of a pattern follower, I think the last time I followed one was in high school! My sewing style is much more "rustic" - and as you can imagine has more failures than successes. But Babies clothes are small and if what you intended to make doesn't work out, then, oh well I haven't wasted too much material in the process.

Here is what I made...

Green Cotton Pants

Rainy day Biscotti...

Citrus, fennel, rosemary and nut biscotti
There is something about this biscotti recipe that I love... apart from tasting great, it's fat free (well... no butter/oil added), so I make up for this by having a lot. Reminds me of the year I spent in Italy, and how simple food is best.
