My Creative Space

002The quilt is finally finished so now thoughts are already turning to Christmas. At Poppy’s child care she has up to 8 carers, and this simple scarf tutorial is the answer. All the strips are cut and ready. I really want to make a homemade Christmas this year so hoping if I give myself enough time that I can achieve it this year.

004006And another pair of pants that fall into “love a little more than I should” category. It is the Oliver + S pattern with the pockets and front panel left out, it is also full length not 3/4 with a linen trim on the bottom. After searching for some suitable fabric for the dino obsessed boy, I decided to do a little triceratops sketch and embroider it on the back linen pocket.

More creative peeps over at the lovely Kirst’s.

I'm liking your dino embroidery...much more subtle than any dino stuff you'd buy at spotty.

What a great idea for simple presents ... I'll have to look at something like that myself.

You know the kid is going to develop neck issues what with a spiffy triceratops embroidered on the BACK pocket, right?

Love the dino on the pocket and LOL at Tania's comment. I am certain that it will be loved.

Great idea with the Christmas gifts - last year Amelia's teachers got a cowl each - with 6 to make something for again this year I think that they are going to get something from the kitchen.

Those pants are brilliant. Triceratops is my favourite dinosaur... I think - maybe stegosaurus is my favourite... mmm, nope triceratops is certainly my favourite now because of your pants. Brilliant. Brilliant. B-R-I-L-L-I-A-N-T!
