Giraffes and Birds

After a couple of days away from the sewing machine, I took a brave, deep breath and cut into some of my delicious new fabric.
























I fell in love with these cute giraffes and decided to make a pair or shortalls.  I won't even mention the slight disagreement my index finger had with a sewing machine needle.


























They're suitable for a boy or girl ...
























... and the leg cuffs can be buttoned up or down.  They will be available for sale in my Etsy shop and at the BrisStyle Mother and Child Market on 9 October.























Today a noisy miner joined the crested pigeon in attacking my window.  At least he had the decency to wait until a civilised hour - the crazy pigeon started at 6.00am.
 
Does this make me a chick magnet?

Oooo I love the Giraffe fabric, such a cute outfit! Yeah, we have those silly birds at our house too. Oh, by the way, I've started up my new Amalou blog. I'm slowly crawling out of my hole and back into the blogosphere :)
