My craft room (part 1 and part 2) is in full blown use - huzzah. It still doesn't stop me from planning more craft projects than I'll ever ever get finished. Why do I keep starting things? I reckon I'm probably the most impatient person when it comes to craft. I love starting things...hate finishing things...until they're done and I can admire them. My other issssue is taking on projects that are just huge. No small time here!
This week I finished a couple of pairs of pants for Button, the first bandana bib, oh and I finally got Macarons to work! OK I have to admit that it was a packet mix (gasp) but you can't go wrong when Zumbo's name is all over it.
Pretty cute, huh! These were super easy and the pattern is the Basic Newborn Pants from Made by Rae. I upsized these to a 3-6mo size by adding 1" to the top and bottom seams as well as 1/2" to the fold. Ideally, I should have added 2" to the bottom hem, but Button has mummy's short legs at the moment, so it's not a big deal. I can always add cuffs to lengthen them later on.
This is way cuter than I thought it would end up being and now I have to get my s&#t together and make a million more. Button really is a drool monster! The pattern is from PurlBee.The packet came with a cardboard template so you can draw 2cm diameter circles on the underside of the baking paper and pipe on the other side so that all shells are uniform. Such a good idea! Next is to make them from scratch (wish me luck).
Here is a run down of my WIP's...

I really need to get my cardmaking mojo back and of course get some jewellery made for the shop! Why do I keep putting that off?
Ugh enough of my whinging...here's a funny pic of Button to brighten your day. He's soooo gonna hate me when he's older. But I reckon it's payback for waking me up every 2 hours lately. *yawn* So this is what being a parent is like?! Boo.
"You talkin' to me?"
