This weeks challenge: Aussie Fabric Only
I don’t like to pay the crazy shipping fees for fabric from outside of Australia and trying to figure out the conversion rates, so almost all of my fabric has been bought from an Australian retailer. (and since it would be super hard to find fabric that was manufactured completely in Australia I’m counting purchased from an Australian retailer as accepting this weeks challenge.)
It got pretty cold here this week and Parker has been wearing some of last years winter pants but he’s had a growth spurt and while they still fit (just) they aren’t going to last all of winter so I thought I better get organised and get him some new winter clothes sewn up.
My favourite pattern for winter pants is the Sprouts in the Twigs option. They are great for daycare as he can still run around and play and even when they are a bit too long the cuff keeps them in place on his leg and not in the dirt so I can make them a a little longer for more wear.
I made two pairs and still need to make a few more, the foxes came from Fabric by Missy Rose and the Sharks came from a retailer that has since closed, they are both 220 Cotton Lycra which I have found stands up to the roughness of my crazy kid.
