A gorgeous birthday bag.

We had a 6yo birthday party approaching and I'd been scratching my head as to what to buy as a gift because I'm trying to avoid buying crappy plastic presents, when it dawned upon me ... make her something! So I asked my Little Miss Four if I should make a bag and "YES" was the definite answer!  So here it is!

The Bright & Cheery Blanket

Now that Laney is a 'big girl' now, she needed a new bed and of course, I took that opportunity to also crochet a blanket.

Riley Vest

My latest sewing project was this super cute vest for Joe. It's just starting to get a bit cooler here in Tasmania, so it'll keep him snuggly warm whilst playing outside.

"must reach ankles"

Ok, so when Laney walked up to me the other day and quite firmly told me that she doesn't have a dress that reaches her ankles and Mumma needed to make her a new dress now... well, yes I did drop everything and make that girl a dress!


She very clearly stated that the dress must reach her ankles and be shaped like her purple Elsa top. Here is a photo of her trying the dress on for size, showing me the ruffles that needed to go on and oh, not forgetting the very 'clear & precise' pattern that she drew for me.











Here is the finished product. I got it right. I got kisses, squeals and then she twirled and twirled.
