Here’s some of the good stuff from 2013!
First of all our little monkey turned 1 and discovered his love of cake! That’s my boy.
I joined in some swaps – a sweet pouch swap organised by Ros at Sew Delicious & a little pincushion swap organised by Lisa at Sweet Little Pretties
Little pin cushion
I finally made some time to sew something for me and I love it. Its the Jamie Dress by Sis Boom. I picked up this fabric from a Spotlight sale for $3 a metre, BARGAIN!
I tried out some new bags using Melly & Me’s patterns and loved the results
Raspberry Ripple Bag
Fat Quarter Bag
I also went to one of Nicole Mallalieu’s classes and learnt so much, even though I was a little star struck (she’s one of my favourite bag designers). Totally loved it and worth every cent. It was one on zippers, lots of zips in this tote so I thought I should keep it!
This year we added some clutches to our bag range in 3 different sizes. (the 150mm frame using Nicole Mallalieu’s pattern, the others based on this)
I also put my hand to some quilting but only for me & family. This is certainly more of a challenge than making a bag.
And not long before Christmas I did my first market for the year. I hope to be back at Maribyrnong Makers Market next year. It was a great day.
And the most exciting news was finding out we were pregnant again!
Happy New Years Eve,
A big thankyou to Lisa from Sweet Little Pretties for organising this swap. It’s my second for the year and I think I’m addicted. There is just something exciting about receiving goodies in the mail!
I’d never made a pin cushion so I trawled through pinterest and asked around my sewing friends as to what they liked. I ended up making the Pinnie Pin Cushion by Details by Des.
How it started off:
My swap partner liked aqua, white and silver and spots, stripes, chevron and solids. I searched through my stash and found these fabrics which were perfect. It should be received any day now.
I hope she likes it…
