Relaxing in the Bath!

Well I needed a relax in the bath after making this! You know how sometimes you just know you should switch the sewing machine off and go and do something else because you just keep making mistakes? Well this was one of those projects that should have taken me no longer than 2 hours start to finish but because of all the mistakes I kept making took more like 4 or 5 I lost count!!!  Still I really love it!


I used a digital stamp as a basis for the design, but I changed the hairstyle!


It's lined with teal waterproof lining.  Now I just need a holiday to go on to use it!!

Retro TV and Some Sweet Girly Cushions

Have been busy working on my autumn class schedule but managed to squeeze in a bit of sewing for market!  Have made three cushions.

First up is a funky retro TV cushion.  When I spotted that blue fabric I knew instantly that I wanted to make an appliqué to match!  And so this cushion was born!


 Love that you can pop the TV remote in between the button closures!


Next up are the sweet girly cushions!  Love this fabric in both colourways!



Right back to work! No rest for the wicked!

Back with some fun makes!

Oh boy where has the time gone! Have been super busy teaching classes.  It seems the sewing bug has well and truly landed in this part of the world.  So lots of fun being had!  Here are some of my latest makes.  Most of them for classes!

An iPad cover.


A Peg Bag

A sweet appliqué cushion for a Mother & Daughter class (Or any adult and child combo actually!)


Another cushion, this time for a class learning how to do button holes....


....and applique, as this is the back!


Such a sweet little birdie!


And we all need to be told to relax a little more!


Have a lovely day!

Happy Go Lucky Quilt

I made this quilt a couple of weeks ago using fabrics from different ranges but most from a range called Happy Go Lucky I think, hence the title.  The colours look really cheerful together and I think although I made it with a boy's baby quilt in mind, it's not really gender specific.


After much deliberation I decided to do free motion loopy quilting.  I was going to do wonky straight lines.


I almost like the back more than the front.

New Collection is Taking Shape

Have been super busy this week preparing for a local Artisan market I managed to get a spot at tomorrow.  It's the Tweseldown Artisan Market near Fleet, Hampshire.  It's a really wonderful market that takes place on the fourth Saturday of the month.  And luckily for me someone cancelled! So I got their spot this month.  I had really wanted my new collection to be totally ready but time has not allowed that to happen.  But I thought I would share some of the lovely things that are ready and will be coming with me to market tomorrow.

A kindle case.


A group shot of new items.


A make up bag, now lined with waterproof lining! Teal in colour of course!


Another Make up bag!


Another Kindle case.


And another make up bag.


And a phone case!


And finally I made 4 of these, 2 with Matilda fabric and 2 with Charlie Fabric.  Complete with pocket for book and book!
