it was a productive nap time. with a bit of nostalgic inspiration from my mum.

11 Sep

We’ve been lucky enough lately to be in a bit of a nice routine at home. Evie goes down for her morning nap and James relaxes with a snack and a show while I sew. I like this.

IMG_3653Today’s nap was a productive one, I made a bandana bib and a zippered pouch out of the tie dyed fabric from the other day. It was a good opportunity to test out a different size of pouch as I haven’t settled on sizes yet. I do know however, that I’ll be selling a small one and a big one! I’m pretty happy with how this one turned out.

And, on a slightly different note. I’m here at my mum’s house and she went into her basement of treasures and brought up some old art and design books. These bring back memories for me. I would refer to them when doing school projects. I opened one up called “Hands-On Design” and this is what I saw:

My mum has always got something interesting to find in that deep dark basement of hers.
