Christmas wishes

Another year is coming to an end and I would like to wish all my blog readers, friends and family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Life begins at 40!

Yes, it was my birthday yesterday and I had a FABULOUS day thanks to my friends and family. It started with Champagne breakfast and finished with a great party in the evening. Here are some photos for all of you who couldn't make it and for the rest who hopefully enjoyed themselves :-)

Friday 14 December 2012

It has been a little quieter here recently which I put down to having to do a million things before Christmas :-) But I managed to make Leoni a new dress for Christmas. I used the Duo Tone dress from Ottobre issue 6/2011, which she had a purple version of last year. And as long as she wants to wear dresses, I'm happy making them....
Leoni still looks a bit pale as she's been ill the past three days with this nasty winter bug and today is the first day she's been actually up. And she had to try it on of course :-)

Nearly there!

This Saturday and Sunday is my last craft fair before Christmas - and I'm really looking forward to not HAVING TO sew to keep the clothes rail full. After this weekend everything gets put away until at least March 2013, yeah! I won't say there won't be any sewing at all - maybe a little bit for me or Leoni, just things that I always wanted to do - but no pressure and just for fun :-)
Anyway, I wanted to show you my last item that I just finished in time for this weekend's fair, it's a hooded anorak in navy baby cord and hippo jersey for a little boy, age 3-4.

Cosying up under the towel: our freshly bathed piggies :-)

Friday 16 November 2012

It has been a little quieter here recently, but we're all fine so no worries. With having a Christmas craft fair every weekend now it is very busy here in the sewing department and there's not a lot of time for much else. Plus everyone remembers all of a sudden it is only five weeks til Christmas and so custom orders are coming in....
Anyway, this is what I've been doing this week:


Sunday 11 November 2012

As promised, here are the other two reversible baby jackets:

- SOLD -

Friday 9 November 2012

Another t-shirt

for Leoni. Again OTTOBRE 1/2009 (unfortunately discontinued), slim-fit shirt in pink and red stripes. When I cut it I was wondering if it will fit as it seemed really slim verging on too tight. But no, it really fits and child is happy :-)

Thursday 8 November 2012

There's never enough hours in the day but I still managed to sew up all these goodies since Monday, + two and a half baby jackets. Photos of them will follow, sometime, soon, when I get time to photograph them....

Ottobre tunic

Sewing for Leoni continues:

Ottobre "Tellervo" tunic, issue 1/2009, in Hilco's cosy Elisabet sweat. I will try and get a photo with Leoni wearing it later on.

A day out in Edinburgh

 Edinburgh Castle

 Outside Camera Obscura. This mirror had a great slimming effect :-)

Quite spooky, but well worth a visit

Getting prepared

for the next craft fairs. November is going to be a very busy month, I will be out at craft fairs every weekend on the run up to Christmas. So I've been busy sewing up little dribble bibs:

New scarf

A while ago I read a post from Farbenmix on facebook about a patchwork loop scarf made from remnant jersey fabrics. So I had a go and made two last week and oh boy, they are addictive :-) One is already sold and this is the other one:

Wednesday 3 October 2012

Here are another few items I've been working on:



Making these baby jackets is kind of addictive :-)

Sunday 30 September 2012

Some more clothes I'm going to take to the craft fair in Broughty Ferry next week:

 Boys t-shirt in Jurassic and striped jersey, size 98

Baby jacket made from red sweat and wild animals jersey, size 74/80

Tuesday 25 September 2012

These hippos are just too cute:

Long-sleeved t-shirt in size 98 (3 yrs). 
£19 incl.p&p.

Sunday 23 September 2012

Tracksuit finished - child happy! What more do I want :-)

The patterns are both from the OTTOBRE kids magazine 4/2012, the top is actually a jacket but Leoni didn't want a zip so I just cut the front in one piece. Simples!!
