Busy Days...

Wow its been nearly 6 weeks since my last post. I am really out of the habit of blogging. I am still reading but finding that having 3 kids home on school holidays is just not conducive to blogging.
I busted out the sewing machine the other day and over two days, while the kids watched playschool I whipped up this Lazy Day Hat for the littlest man. He starts his first full day in care next week, when I return to work and I wanted something exciting that he could take to school. I used Ikea fabrics but I have to say that my top stitching, leaves a lot to be desired. What a great pattern. Next to make one for the girls.....

Christmas Pressies..just a little late!

I still haven't gotten around to posting some of the pressies I made family members for Christmas. How slack of me??

This was the brooch that I made my Nan for Christmas. Two small doilies gathered together, with two vintage buttons stitched into the centre. Easy Peasy..

This is the Charlie Tote that I made my little cousin for Christmas. Her request was that it be big enough to carry stuff for the beach and it not be pink. Done. Super quick and easy. It is reversible but I did a pretty ordinary job of attaching the binding on the inside. I think perhaps because I made the binding out of a light weight cord. and learn! I now need to make some of these for me.
