Recent makes…

Just thought I’d share a couple of the things I’ve made in the past few days!

Unfortunately my lovely husband dropped our new camera during a trip to the zoo on Monday and the lens is now stuck out and makes a horrendous noise when you try and turn it on – ooops!  Until I get a new one you’ll have to put up with some photos taken on my phone, if I’d remembered to take them in daylight it wouldn’t have been so bad, but I forgot!



First up is the Ice-cream pouch/clutch – I love this fabric, it’s perfect for Summer!  This has a bright yellow zip and matching yellow stitching.  I added some red buttons with green stitching to pull some more colours from the print.  I’m so tempted to keep this for myself but I’ll resist and it will be available in my Folksy shop tomorrow (once I’ve taken a decent daylight picture!)


Next is this gorgeous little zippy wristlet.  Perfect for carrying cash, some cards and even a smallish mobile phone.  I love the quirky print of this fabric, with all the little outfits and pattern pieces.  This will also be available in my Folksy shop tomorrow.  I still have a little bit of this fabric left so expect to see it popping up every now and again!


This little clutch bag is what I’m working on at the moment, testing out an idea in my head which turned into a pattern and this ‘prototype’!  It still needs the curves pushing out properly and some top stitching to finish it off and close the gap (hence the pins!)  I left the gap in a stupid place but never mind, I’ll know better next time.  It’s fully interfaced on both the lining and the outer shell, and closes with a magnetic snap.  Once I’ve perfected it I’ll put a tutorial on here :)

Please have a peek at my shop to see what else I’ve got for sale, I’ve got quite a bit to list still so keep an eye on it!  All money made will now go towards a new camera lol!!

Will end with a couple of pictures of my little monkeys, they are growing up so quickly.  I’ve spent quite a bit of time making some Summer clothes for Daisy so I’ll get her to do some modelling this week and put some pics up.  The peasant blouse tutorial over at Indietutes is so quick and easy that I’ve made a few tops and currently working on a couple of A-line dresses using the same idea.  I’m struggling to think of clothes to make for Dylan other than pj trousers – if anyone has some good suggestions please leave a comment and let me know.
