Strawberries and Dreams

Happy 2012 Everyone!  I love this time of year - I love the opportunity to begin again, to set goals, to refresh.  I also love strawberries, dreams and the fact that I have managed to sew pyjamas for our girls.

Check out these sweet little legs complete with strawberry nappy covers!  E's pjs have been teamed with a white onesie.

KB's pj pants have been modeled on a pair of shorts from her wardrobe and teamed with a "rhubarb" singlet.  I just cannot believe I actually made these and they actually fit!!

Dana and her inspirational blog motivated me to believe I could actually sew these.  She is one outstanding Mama.  I found her tutorial on creating ones own patterns to sew very helpful for these pj pants.  

Dana's diaper cover pattern and tutorial were used to create these cutie pies for baby pjs.  The delicious fabric was an on sale discovery from Spot light and I feel like it just sums up what we love about summer here in Aotearoa.

Now my two little strawberries are (finally) snuggled in bed, sleeping in their new "jammas" and their very excited and proud Mama awaits the morning to see if these pretty things can function as they are meant to and hold it together for a night!!

Thanks for stopping by I would love you to make my new year by joining me on my Facebook page if you can.  If you have not already, please visit Dana's newly refreshed and very motivational blog.

Have a happy week.


  1. Sen-fricken-sational! I am oh so impressed! It kind of puts my teeny little newborn beanie to SHAME! Oh well small steps for me I guess!

  2. Very cute! I wish I could sew, for some reason my mums lessons just went straight over my head and now I'm kicking myself!
