We've Been Published!!!

It you are interested in buying the magazine click the link above.

My wallet pattern can be found in the summer 2011 (its from the US) edition of Stitch Magazine. I can't even begin to describe my excitement when they accepted my pattern submission and I didn't actually believe it until the magazine arrived on Tuesday!

And here is the wallet. I was very pleased that they sent it back to me. It is now for sale on the website!

Overalls and Nappies

These are some cute overalls I have just added for sale on our weebly site. Size 000.

I have finally perfected my nappy pattern and this isn't it!! Well, it almost is, since making this one I've added a few minor tweaks, but this is essentially it. Elliot gladly modelled it for me, then refused to take it off so I let him wear it bed as an experiment to see if it would leak... it didn't!! Not a drop of leakage! I was very pleased!

This nappy fits my 20 month old and my three year old. I would say it is a medium (weight range 7 - 14kg).

Market on Sunday!

We will be at the Valley Market this Sunday. 10am - 2pm at the Lenah Valley community hall.
These are some new wallets that I have made especially for the Market. Below is my favourite red blender fabric (which is all gone now...) with chair inner.

This is a cozy romper I've made for my brother's baby. Its not arriving until may and we don't get to know the gender so I'm hoping this is neutral enough! I used a pattern to make this and it was crap! I had to trim it down several inches and the neck ended up really wide (which I also narrowed.). I hate it when patterns that you buy (or your mum buys and you steal them from her!) just don't work. Very frustrating. I used ribbing around the neck, wrists and legs as opposed to bias binding which the pattern suggested. Anyway, after a lot of alterations I'm pleased with the result!

The little spotty tree applique.

This is what happens when I try to sew when Ollie isn't in bed! Oh, and he's got no pants on!

Ta Da!!! I can't quite believe I made these...
I thought they would be harder. These are for my nephew in Scotland. My poor family only get dodgy hand made presents from me!

I haven't put the button on yet.

Things I've been making for the boys!

I've kidnapped mum's overlocker for the month while she's in Scotland so I'm having a go at making some clothes. This top is made from three long sleeved onsies that I bought for Ollie that he's out grown.

Elliot's Sleep suit. I highly recommend Ottobre magazines for fantastic kids and babies patterns.
