Newly aquired Material

Funky Flannel!!  $6.99/mt It is so cute, I am making some Pj's for myself. This will only make some pants, still deciding if I should go back and get some more for the top too! Hmmmm
















New Romance Voile. $3/mts yep you have seen that right! Cheap! I got 5mts to make the Maxi dress that I have been wanting to make for a long time. It will be nice and light for spring/summer can't wait!



















Floral Dobby Poppy! $5/mt bought 2mts. I just loved this material. Don't know what I will make with it yet but it was too cute to pass up.


Now for the finished products!

This was the first project I started just before the school holidays. I made one for Hannah and her cousin Sarah. Very cute! It was also the first time that I had done box pleats.









Hannah's cord dress also had some box pleats in it but as I had already made the above skirt twice already it didn't seem as hard. The bodice though had 7 panels to it, but overall a great dress. It will look great with tights and boots!

These two tops below I finished yesterday! It was a very simple pattern, the only thing is the sleeves were a bit time consuming. Overall I like how they turned out and now have some more tops to wear (with sleeves).

Sorry it has been a while

I have done tow box pleat skirts one for Hannah and her cousin Sarah. A cute winter cord dress for Hannah and have nearly finished two tops for me. More from me later

my new and up and coming projects!

I call this "All For Hannah". Yep all this is going to make some clothes for my big girl.


This first one is a red/rusty corduroy. So I will be making a very trendy dress for her to wear with a nice pair of black tights. I think she will like this one.
$6.74/mt










This cute little check teddy bear fabric has been sitting in my stash for a bit and had no idea what to do with it. Then my friend had a great pattern so I am going to do the pleated skirt on the top. Very cute!










I also got some Indigo denim to make the pants on this pattern. It was $6/mt. A huge bargain.











These last 2 pieces of fabric the pink one is for a top and was $3/mt and the other I am still deciding between a top and a skirt it was $6/mt and it is a cotton drill. It would also make a great pair of pants. Hmmmmm.










So these were my spotlight buys this week. Very pleased cause they had 25% sale this week. I will defiantly be posting the results of these fabrics, as well as how Hannah has like each item.

 Thanks every one.

A Very Busy Week!

True to my word, I tided my sewing nook and started and finished nearly everything that I had started or left to mend.
Bethany's Pj's were actually very easy to sew as I had already sewn some for Hannah. The neck line was still a little tricky but over all I would do it again! She absolutely loves her sparkly star PJ's.

There were 4 toddlers Hats, which I had cut out years ago they are very cute just never got around to making them. I fixed up a pink shirred dress that was fraying every where. And the pink bag I also finished. All of these items (in the picture below) are for sale one small hat, (teddy bear small 48cm) $6, and the other 3 are medium 51cm $8. The bag is and the dress are $15. The dress should fit a big 3year old up to a small 5year old.
