This weeks up cycle - cardigan lounge set for wee Bunny

This week has been the start of the real winter BRRRRRRRR'S, come 4:30pm the log burner is on at full blast and so are the cosy slacks.




For a while i've been searching for a super cosy, soft, quality and snuggly lounge set for the boys and especially little Arthur who has the most softest and sensitive skin, I did find a few, but I found was either £100 plus, utter dross or even worse, the unbreathable sweat inducing cheapo onsie's!

So I decided to make my own for them, starting today with a set for Bunny (Arthur). I found a wonderfuly soft and cosy cardigan in a charity shop, it was a ladies size 14, after a thorough launder  I rearranged the arms into trousers with an elastic waist and the front and back into a little cardigan with a blanket stitched neckline, hey presto Thursday's up cycle!

He seems to love it, I offered to change him for dinner and he point blank refused... so I'm guessing thumbs up all round!



I'm thinking of making a few more, starting with Archie's over the weekend, i have a super soft grey marl cashmere cardigan with his name written all over it!

  1. Watched you for so long and only just decided to google you!!

    Today saw you cleaning silver, I've done something similar for years but using washing soda. It means that I can use lovely silver - plated - cutlery without whole heaps of work, cool.

  2. Me again and off the point as usual. I now see that you are in Hampshire - I'm in Chichester - and I wonder if you know the lovely Becky from Plan for Mondays. She has opened a shop in Southampton and here is her link on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/planformondays
