And yet more

Told you I got lots finished at Sewjourn!!

Here are two more completed garments.
There wasn't much to be done here as I confessed, but the recipients are super-happy with these.

This little Miss is looking quite pale - she's been unwell all week but jumped at the chance to pose in her leotard.
I used the same sparkly iron-on for both as the other designs were a little lacking in a distinct shape, I just picked these up at Spotlight and was impressed at how easy they were to use.
Custom made - so it fits the very long torso of Miss A.
I picked up this gorgeous soft velour in a bulk pack at Rathdown Remnants ages ago.

The pattern is from an edition of Ottobre that I specifically chose for a leotard pattern.
It's late and I'm tired so I'm not going to look up which edition unless you really want to know!

There's a little more growing room in these which is great - and the best bit -  not a wedgie to be seen at gymnastics.

Miss L declared that she loved, loved, loved it and was never taking it off, not even for a wash!
I'm happy with that as my report card.

When asked where it was from by another mum, Miss L told her "My mum made it for me" and then Miss A added "my mum sews 30 50 things!"
Which is apparently the biggest number you can imagine.
*heart*

30 50 things is very impressive indeed! Those leotards look amazing!

Nothing quite like having your kids as some of your biggest fans, is there?! :) I'm sure the girls will have lots of fun in their leotards.
