My latest obssession...

I have Ren to blame/thank for this latest obsession. You shouldn't have taught me how to do this!! lol

These 3 yoyos have been sitting in my sewing box forever and I'm so happy to finally put them to use and get rid of them lol

I love this bag so so much. I agonized over it for hours - different ribbons and lining and fabric placement etc... I tried every combination possible before deciding on this one and I'm happy with my choice.

I don't really like this one. The red polkadots along the bottom and the red for the ladybird's wings are different reds and it's pretty noticeable.

This one used up the last of my "Night Owl"fat quarter. It's amazing how far a single fat quarter can go.

Hello Kitty! Ella has claimed this one =p

And I figured I might as well use up the last of the fat quarter with this coin purse. This Hello Kitty fabric is thick canvas so it's nice and durable.

This is the very first one I made and it's kind of hideous lol. I think Aaron's exact words were "You're not taking that out in public are you?" It was going to be a library bag but the more I look at it, the more hideous it seems. The "LOVE"fabric... It was on clearance for $1 a metre so I asked for 4 metres and it wasn't until she started cutting it that I realised 4 metres is a LOT. I don't think I'll ever be able to get rid of it all lol. So far I've made this bag, 2 dresses and a cabbage patch dress and I've barely put a dent in it. I might make myself some pajama pants I think, that should use up a fair bit.


  1. You could use that Love bag as a Reusable grocery bag? thats what you could do start your own line of customised Grocery bags... i'd buy them!

  2. Ooh pretty! I can't believe you've whipped up so many!

  3. I love the hello kitty bag, it's just too cute!
