This is what I did yesterday at the sewing club..Oh, I haven't told you about the sewing club yet! Next post, I promise.

Anyway, this is Isabella's birthday (5) present! Alfie is her dog and he looks just like that :)

And then I got a sweet thank you from her...I think it means she liked the present ;)

Thanks Kim

Cath Kidston business

..card holder..
(made some time ago)

As a leaving present for the lovely girl who loves Cath Kidston and had already received this underwear bag.
More card holders here: brown and orange, personalised, and mine!


2 dresses made by me and one made by my sister.
Yes, she made her own wedding dress!!! Isn't it so beautiful???

And I made my probably can't see it very well from the picture, but there are two pockets in the front. I made the two seams (darts) in the front go all around to my hips and that makes the pocket.

Her wedding was last month in Germany, where she is living.
