Bondi Tops


Bondi Tops are a favourite of mine - comfortable and tidy ..... I make and use them a lot and wanted some fresh ones for next Spring/Summer/Autumn and the latest Tilda fabric started me off...

I chose this fabric for the main part


and one of the smaller prints for the yoke at the back...


This green fabric was left over backing from a quilt.... it's quite a loose weave and will be lovely and light


A friend gave me a length of this polycotton so it got used too....


... and another length of left over backing... this one is a lovely quality and perfect for clothing...


.. and this was a length of poplin I scored for $7 some time ago....


They will all be perfect for our warmer days.   The neckline was adapted for a better fit when I first started making them....

I took a short break from Field Journal blocks to knit up some little baby shoes to go in a package.  I did make a pair before but got some finer yarn and smaller needles and now they are very cute.  they are just over 3" long.


These are my 6 finishes for the month... quite a bit of progress was made on other projects including the main centre of the flannel quilt

There is a row of blocks to go all around the side now...


Righto, Gotto Go..... prep work for the next lot of Churndash blocks needs to happen.

When I first learned to sew, I made a lot of tops that look similar to those. They were fun to make and enjoyable to wear. I haven't made many clothes since then though.

You are ready to face the warm weather when it hits. It is hard to imagine that our feet were once that small. Very cute booties.
