Dyeing of love (see what I did there?) for these beautiful little jumpsuits and culottes from Wolfechild. Is $58 for some dip dye culottes a little silly? Yes....in fact, in my world, it's a lot silly. But aren't they beautiful!? When I next have acres of uninterrupted spare time, preceded by a full night's sleep and the foresight to buy all the materials, I absolutely plan on forging ahead with some home made ombre jumpsuit creation. Watch this space.
I made some little moccasins for Indiana! It's my first attempt and I'm rather smug about the results. After some wrangling with the sewing machine tension it was a lot less tricky than I imagined. Going to make a zillion more pairs when I can next rustle up the time. Many thanks to my mama for helping to draw the pattern, which was loosely based on one I bought from i think sew about a year ago and have been aching to use since then.
Thank you magical Pinterest for drawing my eyes to this little beauty. Well, thanks & no thanks - because it's sold out, and I can't much decipher how much it was anyway. But isn't it the dreamiest?? Anything alpaca is always so soft and snug...and the lining! Swoon...
Indiana turned a whole six months old today, which is completely nuts. Half a year has passed like lightning. We have been taking a polaroid a month (to the day) of her, just as we did with Pablo. I compared their polaroids today and they look almost identical, both with little elfin ears and beautiful big eyes.
I went through the mass of current baby clothes and weeded out the 3-6monthers, replacing with the 6-12monthers from our enormous horde of Pablo's hand-me-downs and things I maybe couldn't resist buying whilst pregnant. I couldn't believe some of the things that are now her size - it feels like just yesterday Pablo was wearing them. Definitely a moment of sheer terror and stunned nostalgia at how quickly time has been zipping along.
