Some new things and a giveaway prize!

Once again I would like to thank all who joined in with my Giveaway!
Life is really hectic for me now! I work 4 days a week, care for my 3 children (when I am not at work) try and run a household (note the word try) and also like to keep up with my sewing hobby!! So it has taken me a little while but I have finally finished Shell's prize!! She requested a Dr Suess skirt for her little miss to enjoy! I hope you like it Shell...

My new collection of "Fancy Pants" are proving to be quite popular. I sold most pairs at the last Handmade Expo I attended and have done a few custom orders also! I designed theses pants when I wasn't sure what to do with all my fat quarters!! Most of the pants I am making are one of a kind designs and I am unable to reproduce two pairs exactly the same, which means your little princess gets her very own unique pair of fancy pants!!

I hope you are all keeping nice and warm this winter!!

Lessons from a crazy sewing lady!!!

Swift Jim gave me all his old "fat" jeans to repurpose into new things to sell at the markets and my online shop. So tonight I got busy making some funky wrist cuffs.
After a couple of hours worth of sewing, and seriously offending my sewing machine in the meantime (I broke the needle, then it decided to sew backwards!!) I was quite happy with the results of my evening's work.....

That was until I started packing up. As I started to fold the jeans up to put away for further repurposing I looked at the pockets and thought to myself... "Gee they are girly pockets".... HANG ON!!! They ARE girly pockets!!!! THEY ARE MY JEANS!!!!!

My nice jeans gone :( I sure hope those wrist cuffs sell at the market on the weekend!!! Maybe I need to label them "designer"?
