I hope you enjoyed seeing and "meeting" some new bloggers and makers from around the world, and seeing what they did with the patterns. This last pic is from Viki, who made the Pixie Shorts version. Viki doesn't have a blog so is doing a little guest post here instead.
"I'm a mum to three little ones and live in a rural town in NZ, and in a cottage with a big over-grown garden. I like to bake cakes, take photos, and sew. I'm too nervous to sew for myself (!) but I love to sew for the kids, and use recycled fabric where possible. I came across Lisa'a etsy store when I was searching for a coat to sew for Maggie, and I loved what I saw! I made her the pixie coat and it turned out beautifully.
The pixie shorts I sewed for Maggie were easy and satisfying to make. I liked the fact that I could print out the pattern on my home printer, and stick the pattern pieces together (rather than having to enlarge on a fancy photocopier). The instructions and were clear and concise, and each step was explained thoroughly. I especially appreciated all the photos along the way too. Before long, I had myself a cute little pair of shorts, full of character and quirkiness.
The best thing about the pattern is it's going to last a while, with sizes ranging from 6 months through to 10 years. There are also many options you can sew these up, you can use light weight fabric for summer, or thicker fabric for winter, over tights.
Maggie's shorts are made from an old linen skirt belonging to her great grandmother, and the pockets are made from an old top of hers. I will definitely be making more!"
Thanks Viki, I love the charcoal colour with the fun print pocket - understated yet fun and great for all seasons :)
