Even though I have traded in the crafting for a lot of 3D tetris (packing boxes) this last week, I am itching to post about something I've made.
The problem is I can't put anything new up, because it's all to be gifted as christmas presents and I don't want anyone to see their present early.  I suppose I could put them up and everyone can just try to guess which one is theirs! What a fun game.  Anyway, here's a few things.

Owl appliqued onto a homemade cushion cover
This little owl cushion is currently flying in a post pak to Western Australia. The photo is a bit blurry, but you can still see how cute he is! (By the way, I based the owl design off one I saw in Notebook Magazine and just changed it a bit as I went along).

Dress to wear on Christmas day.

This is the first piece of clothing I've ever made.  I made it in about 2 hours last week and it was so easy. It's far from perfect, but it's wearable and I learnt a few things whilst making it. HERE is the pattern and instructions.

Cushion cover
I love this fabric, purchased HERE!!! I made 2 of these and I am keeping them for myself.

Nappy wallet
A wonky nappy wallet I made for a friend.  This design kind of happened as I worked.  It was originally going to have squared corners and no binding and velcro to close it, but with each new step another idea would make it's way into the project and Tada..............this is how it ended up.  I'm loving a lot of the new fabrics at Spotlight lately.  That's where the lining fabric came from.  I have heaps left that I'm thinking I will turn into another dress for Little Miss.

If I did have time to craft at the moment I would make these cute tree decorations. I think I will make some throughout the year to add to everyone's present next year.


  1. I did actually comment on this before, but it seems to have disappeared! Just saying that I love the owl cushion - very cute! I'm going to make an owl for Lachlan. Also, I was wondering if you've finished altering her Christmas dress yet?

  2. Thanks Laura! I'm really enjoying the owl phase everyone seems to be going through at the moment and thought I'd have a go at doing one myself. As for the dress - I decided it would have to wait until we get up there. I REALLY miss my sewing machine right now, but it will have to wait.

  3. Hello Teegan!

  4. Thanks Alice! I love seeing how excited you get when people comment on your posts and now I know why. I only started this blog a few days ago and seeing your comment did get me excited! Thank-you!
