half way day

We're celebrating two half ways today. Happy 1/2 Birthday to Quinn! 6 months already. Wow! I have to tell you this little girl is just the loveliest old soul around. Happy and content with her lot, she intently watches the never ending entertainment going on around her and always gives big smiles to her brother and sister, even if they unintentionally handle her a little too rough ;) We have just started solids and it brings me so much happiness to see her sitting in the high chair. Time flies and I just want to soak up the joy she brings and remember it for the rest of my life. I guess taking a million photos a day may help to capture some of the memories my mind loses! I know... I'm an old sop... sorry's just she is (probably) my last baby!

The other half way is the KCWC (Kids Clothes Week Challenge) of which I'm not as far progressed as I would have hoped, but I do have something to show! Technically I think they may not be "Clothes" as such but they are worn by a kid so I think that's gonna be close enough.

My first attempt at making shoes using this tutorial and pattern. Not as difficult as I had imagined (although I did make one shoe 3 times.... ) and I will absolutely be making more - great gift idea I think. Strangely enough I just happened to have this purple leather in my fabric stash (past thrift shop purchase) but had no other suede on hand (and the leather was too thick to double) so I opted to line them in a wool felt instead after seeing this version. If you have looked close enough you will notice that I attached the LH sole to the RH shoe and visa versa! Doh! Buckles on the inside :) Yeah well after already making the first shoe 3 times I just couldn't be faffed doing it again. I'm hoping she won't notice ....

I'm sure she'll forgive you on the buttons! I've always been nervous about sewing with leather- but perhaps I'll have to try and make our little girl some of these too!
