Weekend Blouse

I made this for myself for my Birthday in October. It look about half a day. Working around two kids. No overlocking (serging) but came out great and I wore it that night.
This one is a little long but i was in a hurry. I will definitely make it again, I already have fabric picked out.

Upcycled Dress

My Mum gave me a bag of clothes to give to church and I rescued this beautiful buttercup yellow linen mix shirt to make Paige a dress. I had this, from Prudent Baby, on my list of "to dos" so here is my version of the Snappy Toddler Dress.

It looks very cute and breezy on her. And she Loves the pocket!
Thanks Prudentbaby

Little Bakers

I have been trawling the internet gathering ideas on how to make an oilcloth apron and bakers hat for my two children, who love to empty out my tupperware drawer and pretend to bake. I dont mind a bit. It actually beats trying to do "real" baking with four extra hands.

Christmas Day Dress

Ooh, its been far too long and sooo many people to thank for ideas. But I just have to put up a photo of the dress I just made for my little girl for Christmas Day. She currently has a huge bump on her head so I wont be getting her to model it for me.
 I have had this idea from here in my head for ages and finally teamed it up with some super cute apple fabric.

The biggest booboo I made was that I forgot that I had the actual pattern pieces so I made my own and it was a bit short. I just added a couple of rows of apples onto the hem and its perfect. Then I thought that the flower headband is so cute that i had to give that a go too. It was nearing 11pm last night and i was fighting with the fabric flower so I just made a basic gathered one that looks fine.

Also, no outfit is complete without a nappy cover from Dana at

Outfit complete. Now just to get her to keep it clean long enough to get some photos!
