Sweet Wee Jacket

I'm on a bit of a roll today. I was going to make a baby kimono but instead I made this little jacket for M. It's from the 'Bend the rules sewing' book again and I added a bit of an embellishment which means that M will co-ordinate with the bag I made from the same fabrics! I'm really pleased as it's the first time I've sewn with jersey and the first time I've applied bias binding. I found the binding quite fiddly but I think it'll get easier with practice.

The pics aren't the greatest but you'll get the idea!

Staying up late watching the Tour de France...GO CADEL!

Oh that's very cute, I must go and check out a copy of that book (because obviously I need MORE projects...)
