Autumn has officially landed in these parts. The nights are getting a bit chilly, although still not cold enough to light the fire just yet. Which is quite fortunate really, because the firewood task is still sitting on the to do list!
But definitely cold enough to bring out the flannel pyjamas. I started to dig out last years pjs when I realised my littlest boy was in baby jumpsuits last winter. He's outgrown everything! Which means new winter jammies were in order.
I found the gorgeous little fox print in spotlight when they had 30% off printed flannelettes. I bought the last 80cm or so that was on the bolt, which was just enough for these little cuties. Look at that little fella, isn't he just too sweet?
Oliver + S field trip raglan t-shirt. I think this is it in a size 2. I had a bit of an oopsie and accidentally made the neckband a tad generous. I'd definitely tighten it up a bit next time. The ribbing I used was super stretchy and I should have narrowed it down, before sewing it in. It's not too bad though, still completely wearable. Other than that I was pretty happy with how it turned out.
As for the pants, well they are just a really basic pattern that I've tweaked and have been making for years. It's a roomy and comfy fit, which the kids tend to love.
So I've been experimenting. This is a new stitch I've been using on my bernina and I kinda like it. It stretches out nicely and has quite a nice finish along the bottom. I used a bit of matchy matchy orange thread to dress it up a bit. These haven't been washed since I made them, but the stitch tends to shrink up neatly after a wash too. You can get a better look at it here, over on my flickr stream if you're interested.
There are a couple of other stitches I'm still playing with on my machine, but I'm quite taken with this one at the moment!
So my little boy should be toasty warm for winter now. Just need to get onto that firewood!
