Crocodiles in San Francisco

Dear Laura,

Last week I went to San Francisco, I love it there. Actually I was lucky enough to have some work meetings in Berkeley and so I got to stay with some very good friends and their tiny new baby and less tiny little boy. It was so much fun. As you know, I like to make gifts for children and babies and I had just bought this awesome crocodile fabric so I decided to make some little jimmy jams for the new baby and some summer shorts for their little boy. 

Now I have a confession to make. I finally relented and bought a pattern. My first pattern and this was not any old pattern it is a series of patterns I believe will do me well forever. Dana over at Made has a series of children's shorts patterns for ages 6 months to 10 years! This is great, the only trouble I ever really have with making things for children is I have no idea how big they are so with these patterns I will be able to make PJs and shorts forever for everyone with the hope that they might actually fit.

And some delicious food, if there is one thing Berkeley has it is delicious food

I was too busy eating and chatting and cuddling babies to take photos of the kiddie winks in their shorts and PJs but they seemed to fit and I have a new confidence in making lots more in the future.

Lots of love



  1. They're very cute Annie, good idea to make them a little bigger so they can grow into them :) I'm infamous for knitting hats that are too small!

  2. sounds like a lovely trip with the cutest gifts! x
