Holiday crafting

Although I had only one off day just before Christmas, I managed to get in a bit of sewing and crafting. I made a paper Christmas wreath and it came out really well. I need to thank Shannon from luvinthemommyhood for sharing it.

My son was in need of some indoor footwear. The weather is rainy and cold here in Kandy (and everywhere else in the country apparently) and he hates wearing socks or sandals inside. I tried elastic backstraps on his flip flops but even that is not worn very enthusiastically.

So I got this free pdf tutorial for Reversible fabric baby shoes from and it turned out really well.

Here is my son wearing them. He looks quite thrilled here but it is quite an effort to get him toactually wear them! I think maybe they're not very comfy inside and have decided to make another pair using some soft flannel material.

That's all for the moment. I am still working on my siter's quilt. Plan to make another pair of indoor slippers for next door baby and a toiletry bag for Dulmini, our pre-intern who is about to leave for her internship.
