Little gifts

For my very petite two year old niece

Here are a few little pieces I made up for my little nieces and nephew. As they don't live nearby the sizes were a bit of a guessing game. Fingers crossed that they fit! Thankfully I know their mother appreciates the homemade items.

The shorts are an exact replica of a pair I made for Luca..just sized down. The little skirt is the same as one I made for Violet.

And then something for the eldest two to have a little fun with...

Pencil cases made with op shop linen tea towels and zippers. I chain stitched their names (I guess my messy stitching gives it a handmade look..)

Now all I need is some colouring books...

Love all those fabrics and the sweet skirts! Those linen tea towels were fantastic finds. What a great new lease of life for them.

Cohen has a colouring in book, the pages of which he rips when he thinks I'm not looking! He also has a visual diary, the black covered spiral bound type. He loves it. Sometimes he just flicks through it and scribbles on random pages. Other times he spends time building up a picture in layers and I write the date on them. I love kids drawings. :)
