This is the other $4 a metre material in a heavy brown that I also made yesterday. While I was checking out the crochet hearts I found and liked this trim to make the shorts a bit more girly. I have just about finished Lacie's pair but I was 5cm short of the trim and need to get some more! Tip: Measure how much you need and don't guess..
And these are for little Mitchie. I made my own pattern for these shorts as I don't have any patterns in his size (00). I am still thinking of adding a pocket or a patch somewhere but just not sure yet.
After another day of fabric shopping, I needed to prepare an easy dinner for my gang. It was deeeelish!! As simple as steak, baked potato and beans... but the deeelish part was the butter mix I made from a mag I was flicking through.
100g of softened butter
1-2 crushed garlic cloves
1 long red chilli seeded and chopped
1 tbsp of lime zest
Mix together and put in glad wrap and roll into a log. Put it back in the fridge and when meat is cooked to your liking and is on your plate, cut a few slices of this butter mix and put it on your steak. Mmmmmmmm! Too easy. I have stacks left over, but it is sure not to go to waist. A slice in my mash, or on chicken or on broccoli or anything..
