As you may know, we're awaiting the arrival of our first son (third child).
[Although, at risk of stating the obvious, we're not exactly sitting around idly waiting for him to make his appearance into the world.]
Back, in what seems like a long time ago, one of the reasons I was particularly keen for my second child to be another girl, had a lot to do with my emerging journey into sewing, making and creating.
Girls seemed so much easier to make things for.
Having now had my fill of 'pink' - I'm relishing the opportunity and challenge to sew for a boy.
And this afternoon, with my girls having quality time with their cousins and grandmother, I got some precious time to do just that.
Seriously easy to follow pattern found here
The lining of this reversible jacket comes from a South American poncho my Dad brought me home many years ago - and I never found a use for it: until now.
I have also made 2 baby blankets from this poncho - and seeing as it doesn't seem right to sell something that started out life as a gift... I've got one to give away.
And you get to do some giving too.
Valued at $45
