Thank goodness I am the mother of two boys who don't mind a bit of retro in their life. It makes pyjama sewing so much more fun. Isn't the print above amazing - apparently it's from Brazil but there doesn't seem to be any brand with it, just a cut-out star fixed onto the roll with 'latest from Brazil' written on it. It's a mystery all right but who am I to question inexpensive, good quality cotton.
I have to admit that Archie was probably more receptive to the pattern because he had been looking at photos of Jonno from the seventies. Jonno was one psychedelic pre-schooler back then.
Well, time to sweep up the little sultana-like balls from the floor as we have a toddler coming over later and I don't really want him eating too much rabbit poo. I am sure a little bit would be okay though, it looks very nutritious, kind of like dried balls of kelp. Maybe.


  1. um...not sure how comfortable I am with the toddler and rabbit poo comment! Too late now as he is in your care and out of my control! haha, I love you for having him!

  2. Lovely pants. That fabric is great. Those brazillians sure do love their colour. I did not know that rabbit poo loooked like sulatnas.

  3. They are just fabulous - love the fabric! K

  4. oh, god kate, the balls of nutritional goodness are making me squirm!!!

  5. Very dashing!And so pleased to see Christel is happy to let her little boy be a rabbit poo eater! We're all much too hygenic these days aren't we?!
    Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)
