Creative Space

Whilst Bella is napping and Sam at school and in between trying to decorate.....I am making Bella a dress with a simple pattern from Lotta Jansdotter's book using (of course) vintage fabrics. With sunny days and warm weather approaching and hopefully Bella walking, I plan on making several of these.

Also, I decided to start my rug again. I have accepted it will look scruffy no matter what but I needed to sew the braids tighter together. If little hands can pull it part then I don't want to think what little feet over and over again will do.  

More creative spaces at kootoyoo.
