I Love Mikes...







I went to check out meet me at mikes in Richmond on Friday & came home with this nice little package of vintage fabric. I love how it is all wrapped up like a present! The bottom piece of fabric in the pile was a piece of a vintage 'Holly Hobbie' bed sheet. One edge was already hemmed so without very much effort I managed to produce a little summer frock for the girl child, inspired by this tutorial. I am clearly in denial of the fact that moving from Melbourne to Beijing means we will be going from Winter to Winter. I should really be taking up knitting. The middle piece of fabric became another (Bend the rules Sewing) smock. How blue to Willow's eyes look in it!
