Newly finished

Today I finished of some more "Princess Skirts". Some very cute ones in there. I really love making this two layered special skirt. It's a lovely full skirt that looks great on little girls who love to twirl.

They all come as a one of design!

They have a name.....

.......and that name is "Apple Tree Hats".
They are fully reversable, very funky and look super cool  on a little boys or girls head.

Hats Hats Hats

Currently in production are a number of hats.

A couple have been completed but the majority have been partly sewn with their pieces joined.

Been fun picking through fabrics that I think will look great in a hat and look cute on a littlies head.

Hope to have them finished in a couple of days.

Bon Jovi - Bed of roses acoustic

This is for a lovely friend who passed away after a hard fight of brain Cancer. Tracey Jane Thompson-Chapman passed away in her sleep last Monday night. She fought hard right till the very end. She leaves behind a loving family which includes two boys who are five and three.

She was also a big fan of Bon Jovi and this was played at her funeral today.

New and comming soon!

I drafted up a pattern Saturday and did a tester yesturday morning. At this point I have drafted it for starting at 9-12mths going up to about 6yrs. Might even get to make them bigger.

The hat will be reversable with one side a large print and the other either plain or a small pattern print. They will come in either both sides a cotton or one side cord and the other cotton fabric. Come next winter will be looking at warmer fabrics also.


I will have them available for sale from August.

Vintage fabrics.

I tend use vintage fabrics a fair bit in many of my products. I just love the look and often they also are very soft also. Some prints are just devinely cute or just good old gorgeous.
My vintage fabric collection fills the lower storage area of a 1950's kitchenette I have. If I have more time and money I surely would be scrounging more distance places for more.
Take a look at just of my products with vintage fabrics in them.
