Today was my first opportunity to do some sewing for the kindy kids (this is an appeal for handmade clothes and toys for children affected by the tsunami - you can read more here)...
Not the best photo ever but the lighting today is not very good. Don't you like the masking tape? I got that clever idea from Melissa at Tiny Happy.
The skirt is made from a baby needlecord and is very soft. I used the pattern from the simple skirt tutorial from Dana over at MADE (great sewing tutorials over on her blog - I will add her blog on the sidebar as a reference point as well!)
As for the t-shirt - yes it is store bought, but the elephant has been sewn on. I made Miss M a t-shirt like this when she was little and it was an all time favourite. I hope Japanese girls like elephants as well.
I am not the only one who has been sewing - you can check out what Lisa has been doing over on her blog.
If you are able to help the kindy kids please leave a comment or email me.
