Since Maya was born I have been very keen to make her clothes myself. I have hand knitted a few things for her but time is never enough to do everything I have in my mind. She is a good baby but she is demanding as all babies are, and the time I can dedicate for crafts is limited.
Recently, as I was planning her Halloween costume, I ended up with a black and white striped dress with gently pleated skirt for her using no pattern, just some imagination and some of her clothing for measurements.
It is super easy and very quick to do. With some more thought and interesting fabric you can easily turn this dress into the perfect outfit for the coming festive season.
Here is another write-up of a favourite Etsy shop of mine.
Emmielous Handmades is a unique jewellery shop owned by Emma Clowes. She makes wonderful jewellery pieces to compliment any outfit. I am very fond of her Three of Life collection, a series of beautiful necklaces depicting the form of a tree. Here are some pictures to inspire you and make you head over to her shop!
I haven’t done this before but thought it is a good time, Christmas shopping time!, to share online shops on Etsy which I really like.
lazydoll is a really big favourite of mine. It is a lovely shop by a very talented lady based in Cardiff, UK. She makes little purses, clutches and phone cases, hand painted or embroidered with beautiful illustrations. All the items will make a great Christmas present for friends and loved ones. Definitely check her out!
These are some of my personal favourites, but you can find many more amazing things in her shop.
