sewing for the kindy kids in Japan

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.

WOW - this is so fab and will be adored by any small girl. I've just got a blog up too and will add yours and those above to it (I'm still working out how this blogging thing works, so bear with me)

What a sweet outfit! I am sure it will help to lift their spirits.
