A few new loves....



Not the whole T-shirt but the see that square in the middle, that beautiful piece of Liberty fabric (with the wobbly sewing), I did that. No sniggering please :) Its the first time I've come near a sewing machine since year seven textiles, so more than a decade (shhh almost  2 decades) but lots of fun. I can see how all of you crafty sewers can so get addicted. My fabulous friend has let me borrow her sewing machine and I have spent the afternoon finding things that I can sew together.



When I was a little girl my whole bedroom was Holly Hobbie. The bedspread, sheet set, curtains and wallpaper was all Holly Hobbie and I even carried around a Holly Hobbie doll that I called Blue baby. I have spent the week searching internet looking for pretty things to add to my hairclips - when I found these buttons, I just had to get them. How pretty are they..?



When I get the chance I will pop them in my Madeit shop - if I can part with them
Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Nice job on the t-shirt. Your model is totally gorgeous too!

I was an avid Holly Hobbie enthusiast & also had the full room set up.

Cute t-shirt - I had no idea that your gorgeous creations don't require a sewing machine. You learn something new everyday.
