  • Make it.... Or not!
    on May 14, 2014
    I got a bit behind with my makes after we decided to extend Make it March into April and beyond! Easter stumped me. I had all the pieces cut to make little hanging decorations for my twigs. Too fiddly, so just never bothered!Then we had nursery...
  • Week 4 challenge
    on Apr 1, 2014
    Week 4 of Make it March and the theme was 'Mum'. Simple. Something for me or my mum! So I went with making something for my mum. It's not her main present - that's inside - so this doesn't spoil anything. Just teases her! The lining fabric...
  • Week 3 challenge
    on Mar 26, 2014
    So the theme for week 3 was '1985'. Tricky! But in 1985 I was 5 years old and very much into Rainbow Brite. She was one of the highest grossing toys that year too! As well as all that, I had already bought Caleigh a Rainbow Brite vest because she is...

    on Mar 18, 2014
    Well I nearly had no project to post at all but got there in the end!I knew I wanted to make an apron for a friend's daughter, from some owl oilcloth. I knew it wouldn't take too long once I'd cut out all the bits n bobs. What I didn't know was that...
  • Post número uno of today...
    on Mar 6, 2014

    on Mar 6, 2014
    I'm taking part in a March craft challenge which a friend on Facebook has organised. It's called 'Make It March'Challenge one is:I actually had loads of ideas, but I'm hoping to be able to use some of them in other challenges, so I won't share them y...

  • Christmas presents... a bit late!
    on Mar 16, 2013 in bag apron oilcloth handbag
    Forgot I hadn't posted these makes - I handmade presents and here's my mum's and step-dad's:Bad for mum - a pattern from Etsy. I made it from spot oilcloth and floral cotton fabric. It's huge! I added a zip pocket on the back which I didn't do the be...
  • Curtains fixed... Part 1
    on Feb 21, 2013 in sewing curtains eyelet
    Oh my goodness, what a boring post!Our bedroom curtains had died a death really. The header tape threads were all snapped so they literally hung by a thread. The pole was bent. They were far too long which meant the dog always ended up sat on them wh...
  • Maternity dress...
    on Feb 10, 2013 in wrap dress jersey maternity
    Well, not strictly a maternity pattern but worked well! Pattern is Simplicity K2369. Made from a bright green 2-way stretch jersey. The wrap part was HUGE on me so ended up making extra pleats under my book and twisting it to tighten it! Looked good...
