Parcel from Australia

Posted in Baby, Sewing with tags , , , on March 3, 2012 by annatestadoro

Look what arrived all the way from Australia:

It’s the parcel from the lovely Roberta at Rowantree Design. You may remember I knitted the little blue waistcoat for her gorgeous grandson Rowan. We did a swap for one of her overalls, here’s a little sneak peek:

The romper came in this brilliant bag (it might be something I have to steal from Roberta, it’s such a fantastic idea!). And here is the romper in all its glory, I promise to take some pictures of Luke wearing it tomorrow, although it’s probably a little too cold for it at the moment and I think it might be a tad too big at the moment. But it’ll be perfect in the summer!

And have a look at what Roberta also included for Luke, the best T-Shirt ever! Thank you so much Roberta, we’re going to cherish both!
