Sew buttons

Three bags, a dancing skirt and pair of curtains later I think I might be addicted to sewing. Who knew that could happen!  My creative binge is powering ahead and I'm loving it.  Been searching the net for new things make.  Think I might try some cooking aprons for the little pinks next (might save on some washing too.)

If anyone is interested in making bags try   Nicole Mallalieu Designs.   I made her large swag bag and it's fabulous.  The finish is so clean and professional looking.  Very happy with how it turned and and can't wait to order a new pattern from her. 

Feel free to let me know if you hear of any good site/blogs to feed by growing addiction............


  1. Ooh - sounds fabulous, you should put some pictures of your creations up!

  2. Pictures would be great!

    Am jealous, would love to learn how to sew.

  3. I always see adds for patterns on Etsy...usually pretty cheap. You should check it out.

  4. ooooh, I've just been on that website - I feel an obsession coming on! Just over my knitting phase (5 tanktops, 4 cardigans, many hats and two scarves later) - sewing could be next! Just made the curtains for the playroom so I'm already halfway there!

  5. Thanks guys. Will post some more pics soon and check out etsy. Sounds good :). Mummy mania - knitting! Forgotten all about that too. I made a jumper years ago and have done various scarves over the years. Might save that for the aussie winter. Why did I forgot how great all these things are!!
