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.

Taggie Blankie

A cute taggie blankie made from flannel and polar fleece with ribbons around the outside. I made one of these for Ollie when he was only a few months old and he loved it. He's lie on the floor and play with it for ages.

Here is my second attempt at making my own nappies. I'm pretty pleased with this one! Ollie is too apparently! I bought a little hand held kam snap setter and its so much better than velcro. The first nappy I made falls off because the velcro doesn't stay done up. This one is an all-in-one nappy with a water proof layer of PUL under the cotton outer. The inner is made from an old flannel bed sheet and some gross polar fleece that I got on special at Spotlight ages ago! I am considering making these to sell once I get the design right but I will invest in some bamboo fleece which is much more absorbant than old sheets!

Look at those knees!! Phwoar!

Its probably a bit girly for Ollie but its ok because he's a metro!

We have now added a Sale page to our website. An attempt to clear some of the items that have been hanging around for too long! I love this Pant Pocket Pouch. Its in the sale section because I didn't give it a lining (which isn't a problem, I just usually do). Have a look. There are also several kids sets.

Cool shorts

Here are some cool shorts I made for Elliot. Mum usually does the clothes sewing but I had her overlocker for the weekend so I put is to good use! Elliot had outgrown all his shorts and I went to k-mart to buy him some new ones, but decided I could make him some much nicer ones. He loves them too (given his obsession with cars). I only bought half a yard of this fabric and wasn't sure what I was going to do with it but now I think perhaps I should get some more! I must say the outfit as a whole is pretty bad (nothing matches) but at least his pants are groovy!

Introducing the UBER WALLET!!

Here is my new style of wallet. It has lots more space, including a zippered compartment on the back outer and a pocket on the front which the tab closes over.

Outer zipper.

The inside is the same as the older style. I must say this was an experiment and things usually go wrong with my experiments. First I sewed the back on upside down and had to unpick it all and then as I was doing the topstitching I broke my needle (shattered is probably a more appropriate word!). But I got there in the end and I'm very pleased with the results.

Not to forget little boys - turn up cuffs and adjustable waists

Anyway you like - inside or outside!

Some are fleecy lined, some have pockets, some are cord or cotton - all are different.

More thingies.

A lovely little wrist cuff.

And some more passport cases. I'm a bit obsessed with these.

Some more lovely wallets!
The wallet on the left is made from Erin McMorris and Amy Butler fabric and the wallet on the right is made from some placemats that I got from a second hand shop in Scotland and an old tablecloth from Vinnies!
Outside view.

This is my fabric stash. Yes, this really is how I keep my fabric. It was neatly stacked once, but once I've cut what I need I just seem to chuck the remainder back on the shelf.

And this is my sewing space. Its a dim corner in the spare room which is why I have two lamps, one of which (lava lamp) I rescued from mum's office at Rosny College today! I would kill for more space but will have to make do with what I've got!
