My first skirt!

I made a skirt!  I made my first piece of clothing today, which I am very proud of.  I have been meaning to try it for ages and have only just have the courage to try it.  I used a tutorial from and adapted it for my daughter.  The next one needs to be a bit longer, but I am definitely going to try again.

Tissue Holder

Whilst looking for something new to make, I came across a pattern for making a holder for pocket tissue packs.  I decided I wanted to make a bigger one to hold a full size pack of tissues so I worked out some new dimensions and then went with it.  It was such a simple thing to make but very effective.  Am very pleased with them!

Drawstring bag

I found a lovely idea for a present for new mums but I needed to be able to make a drawstring bag for it to work so I needed to learn how to do one!  With a bit of help from my husband and my dad, we managed to create a prototype which I am very pleased with.  Just got to make a full set before I show the final outcome.

And I'm back!

Back after a long break after being ill with morning sickness and not in the mood for crafting!  I have just finished a project for my brother-in-law making 7 little pouches for him to add a gift to.  I have used the same style I have used several times before and just changed the sizes as necessary.

They have taken a while to complete and I found it quite boring to do the same thing over and over again!  Looking forward to trying something new now.
