This isn’t a proper post, just a little update about all I’ve been working on and a sneaky preview of some of the things to come!
First of all my poncho pattern is coming along nicely, and I’m going to start writing the instructions for it this afternoon. Hopefully it will only be a few more weeks before I’ll be looking for some pattern testers, so if you think you’d be interested in applying then be sure to follow my blog so you don’t miss the announcement! Pattern testers will recieve a tester copy of the pattern, complete with instructions, and a questionnaire which you’ll need to fill in to give me feedback on the fit, clarity of instructions, etc. I’ll need a couple of testers for each size from newborn to age 4-5, so if you know of anyone else who might be interested too then please pass it on! Here’s a sneak preview of one of the completed sections:
I’m also nearly finished converting a denim skirt into a maternity skirt, and I’ll be sharing the tutorial on how to do it in the next few days. It had a trial run this morning and I want to make a few adjustments to it, so once that’s done and I’m happy with the result I’ll share it with you!
I bought another wrap this week and young sir and I have been practicing with it. It’s been fun learning how to tie it up properly and it really is amazing how supported and well distributed his weight is. We’ve so far had an outing to playgroup and an outing to the park and we both felt comfortable (he fell asleep so he must have been!). I’m really looking forward to getting my lovely Pollora wrap now, and also having a lovely new baby to wrap up in it of course!
And finally I’m going to be having some fun this evening dying my hair! It’s not something I do very often so I still get quite excited about it. I decided that I want a change, and as I’ve got lovely pregnancy hair just now I don’t want it cut, so instead I’m going red! It’s the same colour I’ve used before so I know it suits me (even if it is quite a change!) and I’ll let you see the finished result. Assuming of course I don’t make a mess of doing it and have to chop it all off 😉 Here’s the before (excuse the terrible photo, I’m not very good at selfies apparently!):
I think that’s it for this little update. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend 🙂
