coming up....

...some day...

These are fabrics I bough to make some clothes for myself....but they have been waiting on the shelf for a long time

This red one will be a blouse..probably with ruffles on the collar...
I think my mum used to have one with a similar fabric in the 80's and it's still on my mind..

The yellow- also for a blouse; (the circles are transparent) no idea about the design, yet.

This is a cream fabric something like satin (but I am sure it's some sort of silk)... with loads of embroidered flowers.

I will make a dress to go to a wedding in September...I am sure it would look good on a strapless dress but I think I am going to go for straps. I was thinkinh of a gathered top and tight waist, followed by a big skirt..sort of the rock n' roll dresses..capice?

This red patterned cotton is for a suit. I may tray a fish tail skirt from a pattern I got from Mary but I am not sure about the jacket yet. I would like a short one...maybe short sleeves as well... something cute...

And this one was for a dress. It has a lovely drape but I can't come up with a design yet...

Happy Sewing!!!

SEEDS of love...

I made these little bags for a plant swap...

It was so difficult to let go of these...combined with the desire to share these cuties.

The seeds were from packs that I go withe some gardening magazines. There were four little packs in an envelope. I made a bag for each of the packs and embroydered 'Seeds', so then people can use them with any seeds they have. I made a tag using the graphics from the seeds envelope. I glued a picture of each of the plants on the little pack; these pictures are from the front of the envelope. On the the tag I used a smaller picture from the back of the envelope which was next to the sewing instructions. so on the back of the tag I glued these sewing instructions.

These are so thin that you can fold and put inside an envelope and post to some friend...maybe your own 'special seeds'..all you have to do is take a picture of the plant whilst in bloom; otherwise it's like a recipe book without pictures. (Unless you want it to be a surprise)

Let me know how you liked these..
(and sorry for the bad photo)
