Sis Boom Emily in Love Chirp Farbenmix

Well I have to say that I am LOVING the Sis Boom patterns. They are so easy to understand and sew up beautifully. This one is the Emily Tunic top from the Crafty Mamas store and it is just gorgeous. The instructions are so clear and detailed, almost too detailed in some areas. I actually skipped some of the instructions and went on my own little merry way but for a beginner sewer they are awesome.
The sizing is generous too, I made a sz 5-6 and took it in a little bit in the sides as it will be too big for my lil Princess. The fabric is the Love Chirp fabric from Farbenmix as usual from the Crafty Mamas shop......seriously I should look into buying shares there ;)

No modelled shot at this stage but will get some after school. Thanks for looking :)

Something for my little fella.

I have to admit something! Making clothes for girls is much more fun that making clothes for boys! And therefore my little man really doesn't get many home made items from his Mummy.

So with some bad Mummy guilt happening I thought I'd make some things for my little man. It is not that he doesn't have lovely clothes, he does, I BUY him lovely things. But that's not the same thing is it???

So today with his help in choosing colours, I made him this top, he loves it especially the robot on the front. As soon as I'd finished he put it on and didn't take it off until bed-time tonight. He spent most of the afternoon pretending to be a robot.

He's just so funny and cute sometimes :)

Gracie's New Party Dress

Gracie had a party today for one of her friends and nothing to wear. So last night I cut out an Abigail which is a new Modkid pattern that I received from Crafty Mamas this week.

I made a sz 5 which I still had to take in a little in the shoulders as I found it a little wide across. Other than that it fits perfectly. I used three different fabrics, the stripes and the dots were from Banberry Place and the floral fabric is from Crafty Mamas.

The dress was made with 15 minutes to spare before the party....heaps of time ;)

Sorry about the quality of the pictures, the Princess isn't in the mood for modelling today!!

Farbernmix Nala for Gracie

After arriving home from Queensland I discovered that Gracie's autumn wardrobe was completely lacking so pulled out the trusty old machine and decided to make her a Nala from the Farbenmix range.

I wanted whole outfits so that I didn't have to fish around for coordinating pieces, so I picked out the Nala pattern from the Farbernmix range. I had all the fabric in my stash....surprising I know ;) and it was all from Crafty Mamas, such yummy fabric from that shop, so much nicer than anything that is available in Adelaide. Anyway I digress. This was an easy pattern to make up and Gracie loves it and is wearing it today, hot off the machine.

Willow and Moo creation.

I really haven't had much time for sewing lately so I purchased this lovely for my lovely. Sara at Willow and Moo does the most amazing work, it really is gorgeous. Thanks Sara, we love it and Gracie found it and put on before I even had a chance to show her :)

Cluckity Cluck Cluck Cluck

I have been saying for years that I'm finished with having more babies, my family is complete with my three little darlings (well not so little anymore!) However, I still love little babies, it makes me so clucky, they smell so beautiful and they are like little blank canvases with their whole life ahead of them. In an ideal world I probably would have had another baby but circumstances were against us.

Anyway yesterday I met sweet little Heather awwwwww she is so sweet, makes my ovaries ache. Then I realise that she will turn into a toddler one day, ummmm wonder if Tracy will let me have her until then???? Doubtful ;)

So here she is, isn't she the sweetest lil bub??
