It's Tough, Being Tiny

I have to show you this quick pic of Lizard after we'd been for a walk with her Mama.

 Despite having slept for the whole walk safe on her mama's back, she was still tired when we got in and attempted a nap time on the floor!

Mr Kit's Star Wars Pyjamas!

So, a while back I went to Germany, for my beautiful cousin's wedding.  Whilst there I obviously had to take a quick trip to the local fabric shop and oh my goodness me such fabric!  It was about half t-shirting and half quilting cotton.  I had such a hard time narrowing down what I wanted and whilst I browsed my beloved spotted some Star Wars t-shirting.

So...  We got some and I have since made him pyjamas!

 As you can see, we picked two different fabrics and it was hard to only pick two!  I found an online tutorial for a men's t-shirt and I copied his existing pyjama bottoms.

Here's a close-up of the fabric!  Mr Kit is very pleased (or so he tells me!) and I'm pretty happy to have sewn for my beloved!

New House Sword Rack

And we're in the new house!  Largely settled and getting sorted.  However, I am vastly behind on my Christmas sewing and I have more than ever to do, so blog posts are going to drop to Mondays only until the New Year I think.

For now though, lets have a look at one of the things I've made for the new house.  Sadly, one of my weapons racks failed to survive the move (all weapons are fine and much admired by the various delivery guys I've had round).  So I needed a new one.

It's made of spare Ikean Sash (have I shown those yet?), some scrap herringbone twill tape and a couple of ribbons from stash.

Here it is in pride of place in the new garage!

Giselle's Accessories

I also made a bag and a shield cover for her!

The bag is quite simple, with outside pockets on both ends but no others.  It's made of army blanket lined in old sheet and is possibly my favourite character bag to date.

The shield cover was the first thing I made and mostly done out of a desire to try out the free motion embroidery to make the lilies in the middle!  Hopefully, by now I have internet in my house again.  If not, there will be a hiatus until I do....
