Material girl

Feeling virtuous today as i have been organising all my sewing supplies, including my fabric stash - what a thing of beauty, though pic only shows a small part! Here's hoping I can keep it this way for a while.

Fairy tales

Another T-shirt, this time for Miss2...what little girl doesn't like Red Riding Hood?


This fabric is so gorgeous...I have made a girl's wrap skirt and I am thinking about what to do with it next.

Another from my t-shirt range, made using a simple spot 
paired with a vintage print. I love reds and blues on my girls...
pink is not the only option!

Vintage kids

I have had this fabric in the stash for quite some time and have been thinking about what to do with it. Like many other pieces of my fabric, I am reluctant to cut into it. I am sure I will find a use for it soon - love these images of vintage kids playing. I should be inside sewing today but the sun is too glorious outside!

I love bias binding - not sure why. One of my fave fabric stores in Melbourne (GJs Discount Fabric in Lygon St Brunswick) has a great range of colours and sizes. I make my own if I can't find the right one in store.

I just love this fabric - I have used this in 2 skirts already and am about to make another one. This is the front panel and the rest is denim....very cute.
Now to keep the girls occupied for an hour or so while I create - easier said than done, especially in this Melbourne heatwave when it's too hot to play outside!
