Screen Printing Bats

Time for my next screen printing adventure....this time with BATS!

I made up the stencil with randomly placed bats...and then got stuck in!

And that's when everything went wrong!

Some fun facts to remember when screen printing:

1. When you take it out to the line you will need to watch out for THE WIND which will blow the fabric onto itself which will cause RUIN! AND trees that will scrape along the fabric causing RUIN!

2. Once the fabric is on the line you can breath a sign of relief and walk away NOT. The wind will continue to blow the fabric onto itself causing RUIN!

After these lessons were learned...I pegged the fabric like this:

 Much better...and only ALL of the fabric was ruined!

Okay I might have made one good print!

Me: "What does a Bat say Clementine?"
Clementine: "Nanananananananana BATMAN...oh no...Nanananananananana BATS"


One must not remain happy with the fabric for too long as the child will then run straight into it!

Another proud moment as Clementine is running around clutching a Charlotte Bronte book...which she later proceeds to rip a page out proud!

The best print from the day:

Make It Count

This week we made a tent in the backyard...and played until the rain came down and we had to rush and take it down!

We attempted some new clothes for Barbie...I don't think she will be getting out of them any time soon as they are hand stitched on...she will have to be cut out of it one some of my dresses!

We made a 'hole in the paper' game! Inspired by this book!

And finally the girls got to meet Dora....oh the excitement!

A pretty great week all I just have to come up for some NEW exciting activities!

My Vintage Baby

I've scaled down my Peter Pan pattern to a wee little newborn size and have been using the lovely fabric from the swap!

It's been great to get stuck into a little production line so for the next week I'll be sewing some teeny tiny dresses and's great to work with the tiny clothes!

A cute little pinafore and bloomers set!

I love the yellow buttons on the back and the little felt love hearts!

Make It Count - Birthday Edition

Last week for Clementine's birthday we got hard to work!

We made Pom Poms in Dora colours!

Some little tea cups:

And some gingerbread biscuits:

The girls LOVE baking and craft time!

And sometimes it's pretty good for me too!

Happy Birthday Clementine

 Clementine Day One!

Clementine Year One!

This week my darling Clementine turned 2!

She is such a little character! 

She loves Dora so we had a little Dora themed party for her on the weekend!

She also loves playing in the garden, dirt, rocks, Sailor Moon, cakes, lollies, ice creams, and most of all her big sister Amelie!
