New Look For Blog

Well I decided to give my blog a whole new make over now that I have started sewing. All the things on the other one were things I had found on the net till I had had a chance to do my own creations. So let me know what you think. Is it too bright and too much happening?


I went to my parents the other day and had a photo schoot because my dad has new camera that he has been learning to use. Now I am just working out the sizes and description and am going to post them on Esty. They are totally repurposed from pillow cases and doona covers and buttons that I have gotten Op Shopping.


Pillow Case

My first attempt at a pillow case dress and I made matching pants.



Doona Cover
I drafted the pattern from an Enid Gilchrist Pattern Book.

I was able to pick up 2 pillow cases, to make the dress.
Another Pillow case. This is the front.

This is the back.

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
