I took up sewing due to the pandemic and I just can’t believe I am already making garments that I am actually happy with! I love the thrill of the hunt of finding holey wool blankets at the op shop and turning them into beautiful little vests. Every time my eldest wears her pretty vest, I am guaranteed at least one compliment from a stranger! I have somehow made 8 of them!

Baby crossroads vest with bunny ears add on

This was my first twig and take make, other than sewing hams which I use heaps. I used a preloved blanket, lined with a soft Terry cloth. Instructions were very easy to follow. Made as a gift for a friends first baby. Keen to try some of the footwear patterns I purchased sometime ago. I just love making childrens clothes !

Lovely Pattern

I've made 2 of the most basic vests for my 2 new granddaughters. It was very easy to sew & went together beautifully. Will be making more as they grow

Absolutely loved making this vest for my granddaughter! I haven’t sewn much for a few years but the pattern pieces were easy to download and assemble and the instructions were clear and simple to follow.
Highly recommend!
The entire process was lots of fun and I was delighted with the end result.

Little dragon

I loved making the dragon coat. I made it in fleece with a cotton.lining. I cut the tail as one with the back to make it easier. The one thing I found difficult was the name. I made it in fleece, but it was so thick that I struggled getting it through the machine, so it did not look that full. I would use wool next time.
