Hi there! It’s been a while. We’re back from our summer vacation and the weather is finally cooling down enough for me to be able to use my sewing room again. (The drawbacks of having a very light space…) I did get some sewing done, though!

Today I’m sharing one of my most recent makes plus one make that was finished two years ago but never got any blog time.

Lottie Blouse for Grandma

I’ve done it again! I thought I wouldn’t but then it happened. I made another Lottie Blouse. Gosh, you must think I’m super boring. To my defense, it’s just such a simple and quick sewing project. And, this time it wasn’t for me. I made this blouse for my grandmother.

I never made her anything before (makes for family and friends happen, but very rarely) and I think she likes it! I made another version of the button up, which is the hack I created for Love Sewing Magazine. Lottie Blouse by thisblogisnotforyou.comLottie Blouse by thisblogisnotforyou.comLottie Blouse by thisblogisnotforyou.com

Leather Baby Mocassins & Dalton Trousers

Hi lovelies!

I haven’t sewn a lot lately, being still in post-move (and now almost pre-move) mode but I’ve finally managed to photograph some makes I made almost 2-3 months ago! Anyone else knows these problems?

Well, anyway, I wanted to share one of these makes, a more recent one, that I made without using my sewing machine sitting in my parents’ garden.

My little 1-year-old niece was staying with us and about to start walking by herself. To help with walking attempts we thought about making her some soft, non-slippery shoes. They turned out really nice and she actually loves them! Now, two weeks later, she is walking by herself and even brings mummy her mocassins in the morning for her to put them on.leather baby mocassins bythisblogisnotforyou.com
