Shopping Tote Bags

Standard

So, with the whole eco bag trend nowadays we all end up walking around carrying these hideous shopping totes filled with groceries and I just decided this was for the birds. So I started making myself cute patchwork and fabric tote bags. They are fabulous for everything from books to produce. So many people admired them that I have just started making them to sell on trademe and I thought I would share a few photos of the ones I have made this week 🙂

Skirts

Standard

My latest skirts for my shop.

A lovely satin maxi skirt.

I just love this newsprint fabric!

This glasses print is just so fun!

This fabric is a really pretty, soft jersey number.

My first velvet maxi skirt.

Fuchsia pink is always a winner!

More coming soon!

 

 

Last week’s Sewing!

Here are some photos of the skirts that I made last week to stock up my trademe account.  I just love this fabric! Isn’t it darling?

Image

I thought the hibiscus fabric was really cute.

Image

This fabric is to die for!

Image

I have had this fabric lying in a cupboard for years and finally I have done something with it!

Image

Floral is always cute!

Image

With most of these skirts I was able to make two of each and I have already sold one of these. Seems it wasn’t just me that liked the fabric!

Image

I have had this Holly Hobby fabric lying around for such a long time. It was time it turned into something.

Image

This fabric is so retro.

Image

I picked this fabric up for 50c at a Red Cross Shop! What a bargain right?

Image

🙂

Image

I just love the flowers on this fabric!

Image

 

Image

This one is my favourite!

I have also made myself a couple of skirts lately which I have yet to take pictures of to show you but I will soon.

Image

And that is it for last week!

Happy Sewing everyone:)

So many words, so many projects, way too much to do and too few hours!  I haven’t been blogging much lately just because there has simply been too much going on and I am struggling to keep up. I have a bunch of recipes I want to share with you all but they will have to wait just a little longer.  

In the meantime here are a few pics of some of my latest plus size maxi skirts.

New Projects

Standard

In between all the madness of the last few weeks I have been doing some sewing. My shop is in need of some new items and I have started some new projects this week. I have finished a couple today and will be doing more this week.  Here are some pictures of my most recent ones:

Image

My first attempt at a onesie dress and I love it!! This one will be listed in my felt shop in a couple of days!

Image

I have been feeling like a change and so I have been making some girls’ skirts to add to my shop for a change.

Image

Isn’t it just so cute!? Makes me wish I had a little girl to model these on!

ImageImage

I picked this fabric (and the blue version) up for a steal and I am so glad because it is too cute for words!

Image

Image

Image

This was a nightmare to knit but it turned out really cute and my Mom lovingly sewed it together for me!

Image

I picked up this fabric for a couple of dollars at a thrift store and I really like how it turned out.

Image

Image

This is one of my absolute favourites. I just love the fabric.

Image

Embracing the mustard thing.

Image

I just love how this one turned out. The colours are so crisp.

Till next time,

happy crafting
