Nearly 2012

Well, we are nearly there, 2012 I mean!  I have had a tidy up and got my order book out, I have some orders from my lovely friend Sharon to do, and, oh no, that means more fabric shopping!!!

My friend, Claire, told me about a shop in St Albans, and oh wow! it is fabulous, thousands of fabric, more than you can ever imagine in such a compact space, and I found the exact one i wanted for Sharon's bunting!

I also picked up a couple of odds and ends and two cushion panels, which I shall make up soon.

I have been thinking about next Christmas too, and planning my makes: stockings, bunting and stocking advent bunting, I have seen this and I love it!  Got to have a go.  So even tho the Christmas holidays are still here, I am planning next year!

Boxing Day

Hello everyone

I hope you had a fab Christmas and got lovely pressies.  I got some lovely smellies from the kids and the Sew! Cath Kidston book too.  I am really longing to get making on some of the projects, and the free kit is a must starting point!

Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

Phew ... All Finished for 2011 (I think!)

The teachers gifts are finished, wrapped and given, I did however, forget to take a piccie, but they have a make up bag (the flat ones) and a matching coin purse.  Hope they like them.

I also make my last order today, a plastic bag holder/dispenser, type thingy!  It has to be pink, so here it is.

Not the easiest thing to take a piccie of, but you get the general idea!


Just in case I am not on here before Christmas..

Door Stop

Wooo, two posts in one night lol

Here is the door stop I have made for my friend at school.  It is made from pink polka dot oilcloth and filled with rice and lavender.  I have added a velcro flap at the base so the filling can be changed or topped up when needed.

Now bed is calling me.  Night Night. xxx

My Sister's Bags!

Yay!  Finally, through the trials and tribulations of parenthood, I have managed to finish my sisters bags and matching purses, I hope she likes them!

It is late and so the light is not very good, but they are Golden brown, plum, silver and silver/grey all with matching purses.

Yay, It's December!

Good morning.  Well it's finally here, December, I mean!  And now the panic really sets in, I looked at the list of things I still have to do before ChChristmas; I need to complete my sister's bags for her to give as pressies, one is done and the matching coin purses are done, so that's a plus!  The kids gifts for the teachers need to be done and I have an order for a door stop.  Then that's me til the new year.

I hope you are all having a good day so far and as soon as I have some piccies to post I will pop them on here.

Monday ... Already!

I handed over the cosmetic bags today and they were very well received, so I was really pleased.  Then as I was leaving the playground, I get another request, for a doorstop.  Still have to get on with my sisters bags, so think I will be working on those tonight and tomorrow.  They are in the most gorgeous fabric and will post some piccies when they are done.  Today has been taken up with shopping, the boring food sort, so back to sewing tonight, but off to pick up the kiddies from school now.

OMG been struck down by a dreaded flu bug, luckily not the full blown things, but bad enough to knock me off my feet for a few days!

I am currently making up an order for my friend at school for her to give as a new baby and big sister present.  Consists of a dribble bib and nappy wallet and a big sister coin purse.  Once these are complete I will post some pics.

Trying to Catch Up with my Pics !

Here are a few more things I have been making ... and get up-to-date lol xx

For My Friend's Daughter

I made these for my friend's daughter to give to her friends and birthday pressies.

For My Lovely Sister

My sister came over with a length of fabric, and said "can you make me a bag".  So, with some lining, interfacting and lots of thread, here is what I came up with.  I also included an insternal zipper pocket, which was a first, and turned out really well!  I also managed a coin purse to match from the fabric!

New Wallet Design and Some Other Bits and Bobs!

My friend asked me to make a couple of wallets for her boys with key rings attached, I could not fins anything I liked, so I sat down with my pen and notebook and designed my own! 

I finished them in blue camo with bias binding round the edges.  They have a back compartment and a zipped compartment and behind the key fob is another compartment.  Secured with velcro.

Also been busy making the teachers leaving gifts, here they are:
