Bottoms and Books

The other night I stayed up and sewed up some thicker and warmer little pants for Violet. They are the same pattern as the" simple baby pants" ones from this book. Fabric was from the op-shop with the pink lined with fleece and the patterned lined in flannel. It is proving to be a little difficult finding ample sized pants that will fit over a cloth nappy. In the shops it is all about tiny. Sewing up a few pairs is so easy.  I think there will be some more pants making later in the week.

 Another trip to the library this week, with a good pile of books to flick through and do a little reading.

Lot's of tempting knitting patterns in there.

Ah, books and a cup of tea. Heaven!


  1. I love going to the library and stocking up on lovely books. Enjoy your weekend reading and having a nice cup of tea, sounds perfect.:)

  2. Heaven all right! I think I may join you in your books & tea ways.
    The pants are super cute, I've been meaning to sew some more up for the little man. Now I simply must. I'm off to raid the stash.
    Have a beautiful weekend.

  3. I love the navy and red print - gorgeous! I've been thinking about doing some natural plant dying too - would love to hear how it goes if you try it out.

  4. Yes heaven indeed :)
    What adorable pants, the fabric is gorgeous.
    Trips to the library are made weekly here, I can't get enough of books.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. The little pants are adorable and there really is nothing like a hot cup of tea and a good book. Happy reading, sewing, knotting, tea drinking. ETC.....

  6. Don't you just love having piles of books around the house? I have so many, I think I should just invest in a new bookshelf!
    Love the pants, very very cute :)

  7. That looks all around heavenly to me as well!
