More Koharu no Fuku

Well I decided to finally look up the meaning of my favourite book, and it means clothes of the early autumn. And here I am making things from this book in wool. But it’s the easy book and a good one for me to become reacquainted with sewing again.

Astrid’s green woolen dress also doubles as a bib, especially when worn with matching scarf. We can last at least a few hours before a full change of clothes is in order.

Astrid’s really starting to blossom. She’s such a friendly smiley fun baby and we are enjoying entertaining each other during the day. Nothing like a big squeal from mummy to elicit a huge smile!!

Later this week we’ll be venturing away from Koharu no Fuku into the realms of Onnanoko no Fuku (girls clothes). We’ll be making a long sleeved top with flower and pocket decoration, using some of the beautiful merino I got from the Global Fabrics sale.

    Love this outfit – must find myself some books like that. For some reason I just seem to collect piles of 70’s craft books.

    I recognize the scarf! I think I just bought that book and its amazing. I made the oversized dress from it. Astrid is adorable and your clothing, beautiful!

    PS Check out my blog – I’ve finally put up a “thank you very very much” message.

    Astrid looks so adorable. I bet she’s the best dressed baby in town. I love seeing all these beautiful things you make.

    Oh what a cutie! Little Astrid’s in what I call the ‘Bonny Baby’ stage (that time when they aren’t little babies and have developed into something so darn cute!).
    And very well dressed! Its great to see other mums who dont want the chainstore look ๐Ÿ™‚
