Taa daa... A pretty summery dress for Laney

I needed to take some time out, so I decided to sew my lil girl, Laney, a dress and because it was the very first dress I had ever made, I opted for a vintage sheet as the fabric instead of the fancy shmancy expensive fabric that I have waiting to be used!

Miniature travelling teddy


I wanted to make something extra special for Joe for his birthday, something that he can treasure and be just for him. After putting my thinking cap on, I came up with the Travelling Teddy.

Teachers gifts... I think - what do you think?

I desperately need your opinion as I'm having major self-doubts right now. I made some presents as teacher gifts for Joe's teachers ...but are they good enough or ??

I sat down at my sewing machine, intent on making myself some pouches to start to organise my stuff...what happened to me was somewhat a miracle!
