I got one pannel of this material for my birthday yesterday, and went and bought another today to make this bedspread. It is velvet and kind of lace like?

Pink Ruffle Tank

I made this ruffle tank a few weeks ago and finally got round to posting about it!
I didn't use a pattern just made it up as I went along.... Sorry about the photos, they are pretty bad! But do show how frustrating it can be having your husband take photos for you :P for that reason they are quite funny photos.... also, note to self, don't wear a dark singlet under a light one/.... if you can excuse those two things, here are the pics.

Gran's Shawl Part Two

Remember my first post about my gran's shawl? Probably not because it was AGES ago! But thats ok. I finally got around to finishing this in time for my Gran's birthday (ok maybe a few days late....) It is pure silk and reversible.... I bound two of the raw edges and left two as they were.

Oriental Bag

 I made this oriental bag for my Stepmum's birthday. I'm not sure what the material is but it has an oriental pattern. The lining is a blue sateen. Sorry about the terrible photos, the bag is actually white with blue flowers.

Ruffle Top

This ruffle top is a black merino singlet with purple merino ruffle. I have been wanting to do a ruffle top for ages and I am really happy with how this turned out. I think its really cute.
To make the ruffle I just cut 2 long strips of the purple merino and sewed down the middle on my longest stitch. Tie a knot in the threads with one end, keeping the other end long. Pull the bottom (bobbin) thread (on the end that you didn't tie a knot) with one hand and push the ruffle down with your other hand.

Spa Wrap

I made this spa wrap for the gym for the sauna etc. I used terry cloth and 3cm wide elastic. It is secured with velcro.


I have finally finished my labels... so exited! I printed them out on iron on transfer paper using this tutorial.
I ironed them onto cotton tape. I'm really happy with how they turned out :) Here are the pics.
