Gum Drop Pillows

Here are the Amy Butler Gum Drop Pillows that I made for one of my sisters for Christmas. She loved them and I was really happy with how they turned out. As much as I love Amy Butler Fabric I decided against making them up in some of her gorgeous prints in case I stuffed it up. The cutting out was tedious but the sewing together was a real snack. I filled them with bean bag beans rather than poly fill. I have since bought myself some fabric as my lounge room is crying out for some of these. Now to find time to whip them up!

Not Much Sewing!

My models in the fairy skirts

Archie's shoes - Michael Miller Cowboys and Lightning Bugs.

Well there has not been a great deal achieved in the sewing department. Unfortunately sick and snotty kids equates to a tired and sleep deprived mum.

But I did manage to make Archie a pair of reversible cloth shoes except they are too small. So I will need to tweak the pattern and make him a bigger pair for winter. I also managed to get 2 fairy skirts sewn for playgroup. 2 more to go and then 4 capes, which I need to find a tutorial for. The dress up box at Playgroup is looking very sad so I offered to make some simple skirts.
