petite 6.5….uses the force

I’m an idiot, I forgot to tell you in the last post, HUGE was AMAZING. Just damn amazing. He’s a singing, dancing, charming machine. Just awesome. I had goosebumps for almost half the show. The dude can sing.

Thank you for the birthday wishes, I had one of the nicest birthday’s I can remember. Lots of lovely friends, lots of laughs, spoilt rotten and yummy food.

I took myself off Saturday night to see Little Miss Sunshine, as of now it is my favourite film for 2006. A gorgeous, funny, lovely film and excellent soundtrack.

Petite’s mummy received her shower pressie, PHEW Petite hasn’t arrived, got in just in time. Seems Petite’s having her own party inutero and doesn’t want to join the realy world.

So….some details:

Fabric: Dress – Michael Miller "Fusion Profusion", shorts – stretch denim, yoyo on shorts – Michael Miller "Stitch Loops".

Pattern: Simplicity easy-to-sew 4243, with some minor modifications from me.


Baby Yoda Sweater, by Cari.
3 balls Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran in "Aubergine".
I made some slight alterations to the pattern which include: moss stitches on cuffs, double crochet on flaps and wooden beads (beads from Scablight for you Aussies) as closures.



In answer to Alison and Kate’s comments in the last post about the pink "nipple", well, let’s just say that was my first shibori attempt……it looks like a flat cows udder and is now part of Spud’s "next to me on the computer" chair. So imagine it without the cat fur. Everyone that sees this little beauty in the flesh giggles. I’ll photograph it for your entertainment another time ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll leave you with a link to a couple of friends new skate/surfer label, Rough Diamond Clothing. Quality stuff, and I’m enjoying covers of a couple of songs at the moment. Two in particular. Higher Ground from "Gilles Peterson Digs America" and Little Birdy’s cover of "Six Months in a Leaky Boat".

Have a great week!

    Lovely, lovely work. Petite is going to be the best dressed baby in Australia! Even if she is dressed in Scablight, much to her mother’s disdain. And Little Birdy’s 6 mths version is a big fave in this house. Have that CD with the name that escapes me of girls singing Finn brothers songs and that is one of the best on there. That, and Renee Geyer’s take on “Into Temptation”. v. cool. And glad to hear the birthday was a happy one.

    I got to see Little Miss Sunshine in Paris last week ! The original version with French Subtitles. My friend and I declared it THE BEST movie seen for a VERY LONG TIME. It was wonderful and singing super freak under breath throughout the days in Paris was fun…..
