Baby Floral Headbands

Baby’s head is growing and her headbands are getting tight! So mummy has made a few new ones for her (featuring mummy’s wedding flower and a cloth flower mummy got from her last trip to Japan a few years ago)

Tikki Costume (Ladybug & Chat Noir)

Birthday parties have been cancelled, but we decided to keep our superhero date! Here is bubba, transformed into Tikki from the animated series Miraculous: Tales Of Ladybug & Cat Noir. Tikki is a kwami that gives ladybug her powers and well, bubba does give us some superpowers ❤

With lockdowns and social distancing, life’s normal is very different for people at the moment. During this time, remember that we all still have the ability to believe, have faith and hold on to hope. Let’s keep the world in prayer during these unprecedented times.

Baby’s first Christmas!

Christmas outfits are being modelled by littlies all around, and we also have a few of our own to wear. Since our little sweetpea actually went down in her cot one night, we indulged in a bit of Christmas craft…

Voilà! Some matching family floral reindeer crowns
(and a fun family Christmas shoot to show them off!)

Haven’t had as much time to play with the sewing machine lately, but here is an owl costume we put together for a friend’s party! A quick sew with material scraps 🙂 It was Harry Potter themed so this is “Hedwig”, with her supporting cast of Hogwarts daddy, and Beauxbatons mummy.

Well this isn’t quite a changemat clutch, but we are happy with how things have turned out! Had to do some problem solving, design alterations and hand-stitching but we got there in the end. Recycled the elastic is from a broken clipboard. Looking forward to welcoming bubs in a few months 🙂

 

Baby’s Floral Playmat

Baby's Floral Playmat 4.jpg

Having done a good amount of online window shopping, I decided I was ready to try making our own baby playmat. I really liked the circular designs, and practicality of having a wipeable backing (just in case of spills!).

Material was all from Spotlight (the remnant bin has some great stuff) – Cloud cushion from Kmart (just for decoration since baby is not here yet :P).

Next project: to make a portable change-mat clutch!

5 Years – Wood

Well, this is the last of our tree climbing for a while because somebody is growing 😛
They should be making a debut at next year’s anniversary photoshoot!

5. Wood

The dress was made earlier in the day using material from the Spotlight remnants bin,
and we found some interesting trees at one of city parks. Hubby has been doing an amazing job during this time – he is a great blessing and support! (And has also become quite the photographer!)

We are looking forward to growing our family tree!

Sunday Sewing: Floral Sash Dress

| Homemade | Fashion | Sleeved and Sashed Floral Dress |

The weather’s warming up again 🙂 Some time ago, a friend of mine passed passed me this floral fabric, but I’ve only just had some time to make a dress out of it! The fabric was already hemmed on one edge which saved me some time so in the end, I think it was done in just 2 hours!

Buttons, Beads & White (another 3 dresses)

| Original Fashion Pieces | Formal Wear | Recyclables | Home-made Dresses |

More curtained dresses; this time with some spare buttons, beads and even part of a shoe decoration. Thanks Brenda and YY for letting me photograph you, and DeLong for walking us back to the car afterwards! 🙂

 

Lace Curtain & Button Dress

Here is the last of this lace curtain for now. There are a few scraps left, but it has already played a part in quite a number of dresses and tops! The lining for this dress was left over calico, and the overlying lace gave it quite a different feel. Not sure where the button originally came from, but it happened to be there in my sewing box and made a nice embellishment!

 

One Shoulder Shoe Button Dress

I made this dress for the first Adelaidian Diner en Blanc. The silver button actually came from one of my once-favourite shoes. Since then, I seem to have developed a collection of white dresses so… if anyone has a white party to attend, feel free to borrow 😛

 

Angel Shift Dress (with more curtain!)

This dress went through a number of iterations; the perfect example of my spontaneous sews. The bow came about when I realised the back was a bit too low, and I looked at some material I had absent-mindedly knotted together. It is made from the last of the op-shop lace curtain, and from the material we used to cover our Diner en Blanc table that first year (I think).

Well that concludes this collection of white dresses 🙂

Sunday Sewing: Olive Dress & Blue Flowered Top

| Homemade | Fashion | Summer Sewing |

Just a little Sunday sewing to take a break from chores around the house, and keep out of the summer heat.

 

Olive Dress

This olive green material was passed onto me by my mother who had received it as a gift from a friend. It is one of the few dresses that have actually turned out similar to the original design!

 

Blue Flowered Top

I had a bit of left-over material from making my Second Keys Dress , so I decided to make a blouse as well.

Should be able to dress this one up and down for casual, work and event wear 🙂

Looking forward to more summer sews – still got lots of material to work with!
