  • Fairy tale quilt

    Last Autumn, I decided I wanted to make DSD, who was five a the time, a quilt. When I saw Heather Ross’s Far Far Away II I thought it would be absolutely perfect.

  • Rainbow sundress

    This sundress was made out of an old curtain from my bedroom when I was a kid! When I was home last Thanksgiving rooting around in my mum’s chest of drawers in the basement for old seventies patterns (which she’d thrown out, for shame!) I came across it and thought I could ‘upcycle’ it into […]

  • Polka-dot “Boden” dress

    I made this dress last summer but didn’t actually finish it until recently.

Today, I finally tackled Maddie’s flower girl handbag. I had it in my head that […]

  • A kid-size Sorbetto for Kids Clothes Week Challenge

    I discovered Elsie Marley’s Kids Clothes Week Challenge and decided to take part! I haven’t participated in a sew-a-long since I started this blog and I thought it would be fun. For my first project of the week, I decided to try to make a kid-size Sorbetto for my six-year-old stepdaughter. However, I decided to […]

  • Strawberry skirt

    For my second (finished) project for KCWC, I present the Strawberry Skirt! I made this using Dana from Made’s Simple Skirt tutorial. I’ve wanted to try this ever since I read a post she wrote a post about sewing one of these in 12 minutes. I thought (as I often do reading Dana’s blog), that […]
