Itty bitty folding bowls/pouches

I made these recently as a "oops, forget a birthday" quick sew!
They are a super quick gift idea, fill them full of lollies or even a gift card!  If you remember, I made a super enlarged version of this last year & filled it with Shopkins for Joe! 

Also.. note how there is a 3rd one in the photo that isn't finished, well this is a case of bad zipper buying. Note to self, buy only quality zippers from a reliable buyer and always, always test the zipper before sewing them to your project!

Pattern here....
Want quality zips so you don't make the mistake as I did? Then shop here, they are always good & fast shipping too!

Denim Blue Crochet Dress

A quick blog post to show & tell a cute dress that I made for Laney.  It's made with super warm 10ply wool, perfect for our Tasmanian weather!
Crochet pattern here....  although, I didn't add the sleeves instead, I made it longer so it'll be worn for a couple of years before she grows out of it.
