In other news, some friends of ours had a little celebration for their three year old on the weekend, so I made some shorts for him.
Both girls helped with these. Rachel with the sewing of both shorts, and Sophie with the choosing of the yellow taxi and the ironing on of said yellow taxi (though I was so stressed about her enthusiasm to iron that I doubt I'll be letting anyone help with such a dangerous part of the process again).
I was lucky enough to have been given this material from a friend who had already cut the shorts out, but never gotten around to sewing them. They were a quick sew indeed. Here's hoping that come summer, they fit well.
