Good golly - I've made something!

It's been a while since I've posted pics of something that has been made by me.
Here are a couple of things that have been wrapped up and given away ....

A baby wrap for a nephew. (Technically made & delivered in May but forgot to share it with you)

 (mmm could have done with an iron before the pic...)

One of Nikki's bag for a lovely 11 year old.
I love this pattern - so easy and wise (can a pattern be wise?).  I love the tips and tricks in it. 
For girls like me who have learnt as we go (apart from Textiles class at High School .... SUCH a long time ago) these tips are fabulous!  
Sometimes you can hear my brain clunk as I read them and things fall into place.  

I've made a denim laptop/satchel bag with a lovely Prints Charming lining as this lovely girl still adores pink and loves to carry stuff with her.

I've also finished all of the prep costumes for the school concert which is tomorrow night (LOT's of excitement in our house).
I handed them to the teachers yesterday (17 dresses & hair ties and 16 vests) and didn't take any photos to show you - what a dufus!  Will try and get some tomorrow.

Hmm, what to do next  ??
Maybe finish Miss 2's quilt that was started in January - yep it has been neglected.
Now it's out there and I've dobbed myself in I'll have to finish it!

I also have another little project in the pipeline that I'll share with you soon.

Hope you're all having a lovely week, too.



  1. Jenny, the fabric in that baby rug is beautiful!
    Look forward to seeing all those costumes - great job finishing them all.
    I have not made a You Sew Girl pattern yet, but I do have the Homespun with one of her patterns in it to try.
    Have a great day

  2. Fantastic sewing and fabrics ~ both are just lovely!

  3. Oh too funny- I am in the process of trying to meet with the drama teacher because I volunteered to help with concert costumes! Your bag is very gorgeous, lucky 11 year old. I love this pattern, I've made one with handles and have another cut out, with a flap so satchel-y. So good, I agree! Loving that baby wrap too

  4. Oh My Goodness - that's a huge amount of sewing!!
    I volunteered for the sewing in the concert but I think the drama teacher forgot to tell the 'makers'! Never mind I am sure there will be other years.
    Love the bag too - great gift.


Go on, leave a message. It will make my day!
