Making in May

 I got to the women cave. It was very exciting. I cleaned and sorted some things out and I also got to sew!!

The first photo is of a cot quilt I made for my little man. At the top right of the photo you will see the backing fabric and binding.
The top was constructed by simple squares and a border in denim. The top squares included thrifted and new fabrics, lino prints and silk screen segmants that I made a while ago.

I am starting to run low on my hand printed fabric. It must be time to make some more.
I used a thrifted wool blanket for the center. It's so soft and warm. It is defiantly perfect in its imperfection. A precise quilter I am not.

I have been on the hunt for the perfect pattern. Sadly I do not think this is my perfect pattern but it was fun and simple to make. The pattern features an elastic section in the back and on the sleeves so it is less sack like. The patch pocket was made from two doily's from the stash.

Now to wait till I finish feeding the baby and I get to wear my beautiful new wardrobe as many things I have made or bought lately are not breastfeeding friendly. 

I made this poncho from a pattern in Golden Hands. The pattern is meant to fit adults but I knew as soon as I was cutting it that the 6 year old would be better suited to it than an adult. Plus she really likes pink and I do not.

I made the poncho out of a thrifted wool blanket and lined it in a vintage flanelette sheet. I added some embroidered flowers, hand made tassels and blanket stitched around the neck line.

It's so nice to have some woman time. Oh woman time I have missed you. Heart.
