I decided recently that I would attempt something a little more challenging. I am always looking for a good challenge.

I often make clothes- skirts, dresses etc, but this time I wanted to take on something a little more difficult. Soooo I found a pattern for a jacket that I could print off at home. I made the pattern up, did a trial run in some old fabric and then went for it.

And here is the result and I am really happy with it, turned out really nice and I even wore it out today :).

Cute little Bear

Just finished this new little cute bear.

I made him from some reclaimed fabric and buttons. I even stuffed him with some old jumper fabric I had. A good deal of recycling going on there.

Happy with him, looks young and mischievious!!

I have just finished off this bag.

I just made it from this pattern at Noodle head:

I am very happy with it too. I made it from an old pair of trousers and an old shirt. Was a little fidlly in parts, but turned out brilliant, so happy. And now I have a new summer bag! Just waiting for summer now...

Roll on sunshine (and warmth).

Peg Bag

I recently made this peg bag for my Mum for mother's day. It's made from recycled fabrics, that were once curtains and pillow cases and other bits and pieces I've kept for those 'you never know when it might come in handy' times.

I'm quite happy with it. I used my sewing machine to sew on the little clothes and washing line and it turned out ok.
