Amy Butler nappy bag...pratice run

I bought some lovely (but rather expensive) Amy Butler fabric to make the Amy Butler bag but decided to do a practice run first...here are the results.

I'm really pleased with it, although I did forget to sew the bottle pockets in and I didn't bother to make the changing mat . It was a pretty easy pattern to follow so I'm looking forward to making another one in the 'real' fabric this time. It's a useful desig too as it's really roomy and has lots of pockets.

Lovely Lisa

A few weeks ago I entered a giveaway on Lisa's blog, one of my EB sewing friends and I won - lucky me!!! I decided that I would rather selfishly like something for myself and told Lisa that my favourite colour is red.

Today, I became the lucky recipient of this rather gorgeous pleated bag. Maddie also took a liking to it but I have firmly laid my claim on it. Isn't it fab, I have included a front shot and a close up of Lisa's personal sewing labels, which are also rather fab!

I must be on a lucky streak as I was also the chosen winner of Pink Lizzy's blog giveaway. This time I was a bit less selfish and chose a bubble dress for Maddie.

I think I may have to do a blog giveaway at some point to pay back some of my good luck.

Long time no blog

It seems like ages since I've been able to get around to doing some sewing but I thought I'd blog a taggie blanket and dungaree and t-shirt set, both of which were made for birthday presents a few weeks ago.

I'm going to make Maddie a couple of easy skirts this week seeing as the weather seems to be getting a bit nicer so hopefully I'll be back to blog them soon!
