This morning while it was still raining, I made these bloomers for my niece's first birthday. I used a Bettsy Kingston pattern I bought online through Funky Fabrix here, though I only did two ruffles and modified how I attached the top ruffle. The material I used is from a pretty floral salvaged sheet from the op shop. I can't stop looking at them, I love the ruffles and think they turned out well for a first attempt and without an overlocker. I hope they fit her!
There was a giant hail storm in melbourne yesterday afternoon after a 27c degree sunny morning. I was at the races at Flemington to witness some huge hail that covered the ground like snow! It was amazing. We walked up some stairs in the grandstand that had a flood of water pouring down them, it was very The Goonies!
The races were cancelled, and after sitting out the worst of the rain I walked home, and found one way back blocked by a flooded road. It didn't stop this cyclist riding though knee deep water!
