Project: Elongating Old Toddler Coat :)

My girl has got a coat that she has been wearing for the past two years and simply refuses to say "goodbye" to it :) It was getting too short on her arms and general length.. I must have been thinking about it, because last week I had a dream of her wearing this coat with some fur attached to the bottom of it, the sleeves extended and a lovely foxy hat matching it. So following my dream I went to a haberdashery shop, got some fake fur and done exactly what I saw in the dream :) I also made a little hand warmer to go on her neck as she refuses to wear gloves and then complains about cold hands :D 

Coat before alterations :)

Beetroot Muffins :)

Rainy days call for some different activities and last week we found a lovely beetroot muffin recipe that we thought we should try out :) 
I wouldn't say the muffins were particularly tasty, but the process of making them was great fun and it seems we have another beetroot lover in the family :)

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot...

Rainy Evening Body-parts Craft Project :)

Another fun activity we did with my little one - body parts. I've cut body parts for a little person from various colored paper scraps and she had a task of putting them together into a picture and then customizing it with drawing :) She loved how it all came together :)

"Turn Old Sweater into a Dress" project :)

I looove remaking old clothes into new things and recently I've been sorting our loft out. While doing that i came across loads of old hubby's  clothes that I was about to throw away. Then I realized  that all this is a pile of good material worth recycling! So my latest project was making an old sweater into a dress and pair of leggings for my two year old :) I used the sleeves for leggings and the middle bit for the dress. Added a collar and pockets made from old t-shirt.
 She loves her new dress and especially the pockets, where she can put a few toys :D

The starting point - daddy's old sweater :)

And here she is trying to fit a toy cow into her pocket :D

Finished dress and leggings :)
