Ridiculous but true, yesterday I made something for a dollar which I think is just about acceptable to the fashion police (i.e. my 3 year old!)
I had to put aside my gigantic ‘to do’ list last night and do some practical sewing. Bertie has shot up and grown out of everything all of a sudden. I thought I better make him some Hudson Pants or he would be wearing his underpants to playgroup!
I bought this rather unusual sweatshirt fabric from the charity shop. It cost $1 a metre, I splashed out and bought a whole metre! It’s a strange pattern, a bit camouflage, a bit 90’s rave, a bit weird. But Bertie can pull that off – you can pull anything off at 3!
I added some navy blue for the pocket piece and piped with some bright orange ribbing from Crafty Mama Fabrics. All these bits I found in my scrap box.
I have just enough left to make a sweatshirt or even another pair of Hudsons. Amazing what you can do for a dollar!
