Christmas Skirts

I whipped up some quick Christmas Skirts for the girls to wear this year! Clementine picked up the Frozen Fabric for one lot and I chose the Snowflakes for the other!

I used THIS pattern from The Long Thread...forgot that I wasn't using knit (which the pattern is designed for) and made them a bit small...oops!

They still fit well...just a bit tricky to put on! Next time I will find a great knit fabric for it!

Kiki Cross Stitch

Last week I made up this sweet little cross stitch by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery!

I alstered the pattern slightly to turn her into Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Service!

A little update on my Story Time Sampler!

October was Anne of Green Gables with a wonderful Autumn scene! 

I love the sampler so far...and only two months to go! 

My other favorites have been Phantom and the Lady of Shallot!

Crochet Letter Blankets

Last month I was on my way to our Brown Owls craft group with no on a whim I decided to make a crochet blanket for Clementine. I got her to choose some colours from the stash and she came up with this amazing combination: 3 parts pink 1 part orange!

Putting it together I thought it might be fun to turn the orange into a C-Blankie for Clementine! She loved it despite the photos you see below!

*Disclaimer: This quilt was not made during that meeting...but it was pretty quick taking 1 week all up!

Next up was Amelie's blanket...she wanted all the colours but compromised with this lovely set:


They were fun and pretty simple to make...all you need to do is create plain coloured granny squares and arrange one colour in the letter of your choice! And to finish the design alternate the other colours around this!

The Great Vintage Sheet Swap Extravaganza

As lovers of vintage sheets Katie and I have been planning a vintage sheet swap for a while and the time has come to share some vintage love with our fellow collectors, sewers and vintage enthusiasts!
You can turn your vintage sheet into a rainbow of designs for new projects!

The Lowdown
If you would like to take part simply drop an email to us HERE! As you sign up we will send out all the necessary information!

Please have your sheets washed, cut into fat quarters (approx 50cm x 56cm) and posted no later than Friday 25th September 2015 – This will give you some time to head out to the op-shops and see what treasures you can find! We will sort out the sheets and pop them back in the post on Monday 5th October 2015 all ready for some springtime sewing!

We are happy to take sign ups until the Friday 25th September 2015, as long as you have your FQ's in the mail by that date!

Spread the word – get it out there! The more participants we have the more range of awesome fabric we will have to share! Link back to THIS POST for new members!

How many fat quarters you get will depend on how many you give!

Place your fat quarters into a pre-paid parcel post satchel (available at the post office in 500g and 3kg varieties). You should be able to fit about 15 FQs in a 500g satchel and 50+ in the 3kg satchel. You MUST also include a self-addresses pre-paid post satchel in your parcel to us for us to mail your new vintage goodness to you.

Please note that all sheets need to be washed prior to cutting and shipping. This swap is open to Australian residents only – apologies it will not work for the time frame for international postage. Your fat quarters must measure approx. 50cm by 56cm and be free from marks, rips and stains. If the fat quarters do not meet these standards they will be sent back. Only cotton or cotton blend sheets please and no cartoon characters, stripes or solid colours.

Please feel free to ask any questions and have a look at these amazing examples of projects that have been made with vintage sheets from previous swaps!
