Awesome & Easy Pants

A very quick sew today, they took less than 15minutes to actually sew!  Yep, super quick. Super easy. Super comfy and oh, boy does she love them!

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.

The 'NO mystery' mystery knit project.

If you scratch your heads a bit & think back to this old post where I was telling you about a disappointing knitting project, well, I finally finished it. Kind of.

The Circle Cardi

When I came across the pattern for this sewn cardigan top, I knew I had to make it as it was so much like the ones that I keep buying from the shop...and it's turns out, that it is even more comfortable to wear!

Bunting - so easy to make!

A super quick project to lift my sewing spirits. 
This easy sewing project used some of my vintage sheet fat quarters and scraps from my ribbon collection. I'm super chuffed with myself and totally glad I made it.
I'm thinking Joe & Laney need their own bunting now, don't you?!!
