Just a quick finish this week! There’s not been much time for sewing between the little monkey above (ours is the top one), and the school holidays! Read the rest of this entry
I’ve just had the best holiday with my beautiful family, although it was much too short! Can I do it again? No? Well that sucks, guess I’ll have to wait for next year now! But I certainly did enjoy wearing lots of the clothes I made – so comfy!
A quick finish tonight, my lovely little monkey has been having trouble settling in this sudden heat wave, he’s too hot to sleep in anything more than his vest, but misses snuggling in to his baby sleeping bag. Read the rest of this entry
I’ve been working on my Amy Butler Raincoat for MONTHS! This is one project that seems to have dragged on and on and on…
Just a couple of quick projects this week , these are both from Sew Pretty Homestyle b Tone Finnanger. I love looking through this book, everything in it is either pink or vintage looking! Unfortunately I don’t have much space in my life for stuffed material pears or hand quilted table mats – two little boys definitely see to that! But I did decide to make a few pretty little things for my son’s school fete and whipped up all these goodies in two afternoons this week, the instructions in the book are fab. There’s just something about vintage looking stripes that really appeals to me!
And I finally found a use for some of my hand painted fabric!
Linking up with Finish it up Friday!
A few days ago, sparked by our sudden heat wave, I was looking for a really simple blouse pattern I could whip up super fast – using the smallest amount of fabric possible! I came across this very simple pattern on the Village Haberdashery blog, and I thought brilliant! So I pulled out some Tula Pink fabric I’ve had sitting around pre washed, just waiting to be made into something wearable! Read the rest of this entry
Over the last few weeks I’ve been super busy, finishing up my giant swoon quilt, working on my Amy Butler jacket and raincoat, making a pile of various birthday presents, and going to a couple of fabric workshops!
My first finish this week is a dress I adapted from an old pattern my Nan gave me. I wasn’t too keen on the neckline of the original, I tried it on this top, and I don’t like the way it sits, it’s way too high and also has a facing which is always flapping around annoyingly!

This little baby is my latest finish, and I LOVE her! I think it’s definetly a she, every time I look at her I think high heel shoes with red soles and cocktails! I had so much fun making her!
