Frilly bloomers and tops for the little one

I love using the soft baby prints for these little sets. Little girls are so easy to dress with so much to choose from. I will have to show you some of my little boys sets soon!

New wallet style and more passport holders!

A new wallet I made last night which folds in half with a tab closure. I like this style better!

The inside is pretty much the same.

More pretty passport holders.

And the inside.

The inside of one of my wallets. I got this beautiful fabric while we were away in Scotland.

The outside of my wallets.

Some baby shoes.

A purse from the front...

...and from the back. This was my first attempt at gathering.

Scottish Jig

After visiting my beautiful daughter Kate in Edinburgh I have fallen in love with everything Scottish. After returning home I quickly whipped up this little skirt and appliqued tee shirt featuring the two cute scotty dogs.

Pink Penguin: How to make a stylish pen case

Pink Penguin: How to make a stylish pen case
Eeeek!!! This blogging business is frustrating! Especially when you are moderately
technologically retarded! Anyway my photos are not in the order I intended but I will just have to deal with it I think. So, this is a pencil case I made. I followed a tutorial from and I'm very pleased with the result. Its made it from an old wool jacket that I got from vinnies for $3.50!

Here are my coasters. They are mostly made from some placemats that I never used so I cut up! I love these but I don't have any furniture that is nice enough to require the use of coasters so I guess I'll sell them.

This is the inside of the passport case that my friend, Sarah, asked me to make. To be honest, it was a pain in the bum! This was my second attempt. The first attempt was a disaster. I rarely follow patterns so I guess disasters are bound to happen now and then! On the left is a pouch/slot for your passport and on the right is a little zippered pouch for coins or whatever else.

Here is the closed view of the passport pouch.
