I've been sewing lately; a skirt for me and tops for the kids. The skirt reuses an old pair of jeans.

I've been reading Natalie Chanin's books, so I decided to make some hand sewn tops for my kids.  The only knit fabric I can get locally is a lycra blend, so the result isn't quite the same.  Still the kids are happy to'wear them, and that's the important part.

Here are my favourite parts on the shirt.

Rosebud embroidery on the collar for my sweet little lady.

Free-style embroidered lines as embellishment.  It reminds me of circuit boards, which is quite appropriate for my little tech-loving guy.
