A skirt with a secret...

Don't faint of shock or anything but I actually made myself something (instead of something for kids). A  skirt but not just any skirt, this skirt has an actual hidden secret ........

an Organic dress for Laney

It's the middle of winter here in Australia and brrr, it's icy cold. So being cold means long sleeve dresses which of course Laney didn't have any, so that means I headed to the sewing machine!

A Making List

 
Things are getting a little chaotic for me, so it's time to review my current works in progress, look ahead to see what needs to be and start a 'Making Plan of Action'.

Art Caddy Tote

In an effort to stop a certain little 3year old from destroying her big brother's bedroom, I decided to make Laney her own Art Caddy Tote to store all her fun creative stuff in.  Gosh, she was so excited when I gave it to her!

Scrap busting: a mini bassinet for a doll

 

Would you believe that this little toy cot/bassinet is made from scraps? Yeah, it sure is and here's the photo to believe it!

Taa daa: Crochet Embroidery Hygge shawl/wrap

It's a wrap!  Yep, corny pun but I've been waiting to use it ever since I started this wrap!  I finished it spot on time, within the last week of the CAL too, so I'm pretty impressed with myself as it's the first time that I've actually finised a CAL within the time frame!

fold & go

A cute little bowl that folds flat for easy use.
I only made the small size but isn't it just the cutest thing!
I plan to make some bigger with waxed fabric (or vinyl) because they'll be perfect for picnics!

Also, they are super easy to make and don't take much fabric or time, so go ahead and make a couple for yourself too!  Get the pattern here.

...it's bigger on the inside...

So what do you do when you discover your six year old, who is in grade 1, is the only kid in his class without a pencil case (because he never told you he needed one)??  You make him one of course!

a bunny dress for my Laney

I'm super proud to show you one of the dresses that made recently and with Easter so close, I though it was the perfect time for it!
