Sew a kid's t-shirt with a pocket.

 It has been a long time since I have sewn clothes. But now I started back again. Next in line is a kid's cap with earflaps and baggy pants.
I didn't have time to make a tutorial for this post, so, sorry. But I will give you a link where you can find all needed info. If you don't know how to make a pattern in your child's size, I advise you to take another long sleeved t-shirt of your child and make a pattern from it.
I deliberately  made the collar bigger than necessary, because little M doesn't like to put his big head thought small collars. ;)
Well, and a pocket. It  looks good in black- and- white. The pocket won't be used to carry heavy things, at most a few candies. :)
Here you will find a tutorial about how to make a standard kid's long sleeved t- shirt.
And here how to make a collar.

The stringing of beads is not a simple task for small children as it may appear at first sight. Therefore, make strings of beads with a number of beads that does not exceed the limit set by your childrens' patience! :З

"Шум Гам" is a comfortable and a cheerful brand of children's clothes.

Not long ago Max was asked to model children's clothes for the brand "Шум Гам".
We were really flattered by this suggestion.) He, of course, did not really understand why they took pictures of him, nonetheless he tried his best). Honestly, the result exceeded my expectations!)

The main difference in "Шум Гам" from other brands of clothes is the original and humorous sayings written on the clothes.
In case you don't know Russian I translated phrases under pics)
Don't talk to daddy. He is happily married!
The best kid is me!
I love blondes /front side/
I love brunettes /back side/

Fabric basket D.I.Y

In this week I made a couple of fabric baskets. They are very practical. Small baskets will fit well on the shelves and in the big ones you can put toys, yarn etc.
It's better to choose thick fabric and also use interfacing to help the basket hold its shape.
For counting the amount of fabric use the equation: diameter х the number Pi (=3.14159).  For instance, I have the diameter of the bottom 28 cm, so I need 88 cm fabric in length.
In this blog you can find a really good tutorial how to sew this kind of fabric baskets.

Lttle K discovered the new way how to use it :3
