Sewing up a storm

Esmee asked me last week to make some nappies for Baa Sheep....

She has taken a real shine recently to playing with all her dollies, wanting to dress then, really putting them in the stroller, in the cot, more so than 6 months ago, and when we realised the cost of dolls clothes - $30 for one outfit!! - i decided to make them.
Borrowing and photocopying dolls patterns from a friend and using the huge box of scrap material i have hoarded over the years - hehe! - i have cut out about 12 nappies (some are for playgroup), sewed 3, just need to get velcro to finish them, made a dress for Sophie - one of Esmee's dollies! - a poncho each for Jilly and Baa Sheep,

two vests for Jack, cut out another dress for Jilly, cut vests for playgroup dolls as Pam and i are supposed to be making some for the dolls and as i am on a sewing jag i thought i had better do them now or i never will!

Just need to get to spotlight and buy that velcro...

Phew! Now Xander wants some pj's for Jack, oh and some undies please! Hmm. I think i need a different pattern...

Can anyone see why my house is a mess? Busy doing more important things!
