Ahoy Me Hearties..

Naff title..I know but I couldn't help myself!!

I am back from some time at my parents on the NSW mid north coast. was lovely. The weather was nice and I was kid free for a few days. Woohoo. Thanks to my lovely husband who held down the fort at home!!

Before I left I made this little outfit for my friend's new baby. After 7 years of heartache they welcomed a little boy 4 weeks ago. I am so happy for them, they totally deserve this little man!

I started off with the Ahoy baby shorts from Ottobre 3/2009 but made a few amendments along the way. I lengthened them, didn't add the seam allowance and added a cuff. Fingers cross they fit. They are made from a lovely blue and white striped linen that I inherited from my Granner's stash and cuffed the hems and waistband in some gorgeous kokka Dancing Rabbits.

And a little pair of reversible cloth shoes. I found this material at Spotlight last year a nice spotty linen and some cotton covered in animals. They are lined with little pigs and a wool flannel that I found at the Op shop. I made size 9-12 months for next winter.
