Candy Stripe and Floral - Op Shop Finds
March 18, 2014
There is something pretty special about making clothing for your own children, however, I have had my fair share of loses amongst the wins when it comes to things she has liked. But seriously, what is not to love about pink candy stripes and floral?!
I found this adorable candy stripe blanket in the op shop and my heart skipped a beat. I managed to pick it up for an absolute bargain due to the large hole right in the middle, but I knew I could work around it. The lining is thrifted too, a gorgeous floral on deep brown which will hopefully break up the stripes a little.
To be honest, our little girl isn't all that keen on wearing warm clothes. Shedding clothes in the middle of winter last year was a familiar sight, with us chasing after trying to layer her back up again. Recently I heard that children can't get an accurate feeling of how cold they are until about ten years old so hopefully this little coat will do the trick.
Still a work in progress.
