Little red riding hood

A rainy saturday at home left me feeling creative and a little project I have been meaning to do for a while took shape in the form of a little red cape for lucy

I made it in wool with a soft cotton lining and as Lucy doesnt like the restriction of chunky coats this I felt was an ideal cover up without the hassle of feeding her reluctantly in to a coat and with only one button we can escape out the house in a flash

I can honestly say this was so very easy to make that even a complete begginer would find it a breeze

The book that I took the pattern from was from Emma hardys making childrens clothes

There are some really neat patterns in there and all very simple but effective,Im going to make the little boys dressing gown next and have some rather groovy material already and waiting

All I need is some time!!!!





These rolled fabric flowers are so easy to do and look great as a hair corsage as well

The little lady is 3 and she blew all her candles out

 Ok so to some this may not seem like a massive thing but Lucy blew all her candles out twice!!! this comes from a little girl that didnt have enough muscle tone to even cry for the first 3 months of her life and could not suck from her bottle or make a sound

she has some huff and puff now and her third birthday marks the start of candle blowing!!

We had a quiet affair for her,just family,and she loved it even though she wont admit that she is three
when you ask her her age she says she is two......this could be a bonus when we go to the zoo as three year olds have to pay..........hehe
