Fairy Wings

Every girl has to spend their first day as a fairy at some point in their lives and today was the day for our little Boo. Hee!

PVC Mayhem

I am so excited about this little project. I got the inspiration from dearfii's website. (Unfortunately I cannot remember how I linked there to begin with) I've had the Pooh print for a little while and I thought it would make a good pencil case. I've used interfacing on the Pooh fabric, then lined the inside of the pencil case. I love the added dimension of using PVC because the final product looks so incredibly professional. This item is something that I would easily buy in a shop. I am very happy with it :)



Kisses to my darling for going to bed early again tonight so that I could get some sewing time.

Santa Sack

Oooh Oooh.. I can do that! I was at a friend's place today who had a Santa bag monogrammed with her son's name. I thought it looked great and felt I could have a go at that myself. I sat down tonight at the drawing board and worked out what I would do. I haven't done much applique before so I kept it very simple. I was surprised at how easy it was to sew around the shapes. I am definitely getting better at it! So here is Boo's first Santa sack:

Christmas Dress

I whipped up a Christmas dress for Sarah last Friday for her childcare Christmas party. Whipped??? LOL.. It had been sitting around cut for a while and I finally sewed it together in the morning on the day. Working under pressure is clearly a good thing for me. I've used the same pattern as another dress I've made for Boo - I've realised what a simple and easy pattern this is and everything else I've looked at has got 20-odd steps to do while this one has approximately 4! Can't beat that.



And because I love Christmas and toys and love the collection of toys I've amassed as Christmas presents, I present, my Christmas Cupboard!
