bags bags bags

A friend at work wanted a new bag, messenger style and big.
After asking what colours she liked she said
reds, blues, greens,pink,purples.
yay can't go wrong hehe
this was the 1st time i used stabilizer for a bag and i am really pleased with the out come.
there is a litle patch of concern as only one of the fabrics i used had a slight stretch but all is fine.
before i started on this bag i thought i better have a test run with working out a pattern so i made byron one 1st but it didnt have stablizer--regret that but he thinks it looks great anyway so here are the bags i came up with.

i am sure you can work it out but byrons is the skulls hehe.
and foe some reason it keeps turning that photo around grrr

on another note i would like to wish my sister Naomi luck with the baby expo in sydney this week end.
She is taking her product the "bubby cubby"

Apron strings

Ainsley needed a new apron so i thought my girly who wont wear anything that doesnt twirl needs a frilly twirly cup cake apron.
So this is what i made for her.

I am thinking mummy needs a frilly twirly apron too hehe.
excuse the chocolate face.

I Also decided yesterday to unpick the ruffle skirt and make the pink layer smaller--oh the joy that was i should have left well alone.

i also made her a long sleeve t shirt to match.

i think it will be worn every day this week hehe.

Ainsley gets a new skirt and Tyke gets a jacket

I decided that Ainsley needed a long skirt for winter so last night we got onto the net and found a tutorial

Then into the fabric box to choose the fabric.

I really liked burgandy for the middle layer but of course Ainsley was choosing and she had to have pink.

I liked this tute it was easy to follow but i think the middle layer needs to be a bit thinner so oh my i think i will need to make another one oops hehe.

I will hopefully get some action shots today.

Byron asked the other day if tyke can have a jacket and if he could help sew it.

The answer was yes on both counts.

So he helped me choose the fabric and i got a pattern from here

Ainsley has seen the dress and thinks Tyke needs one of those now haha, She wants it to match her new skirt wont that look nice on walks?

I am not sure i can do it.

So i got ready to sew and Byron ditched me to play with the boy across the road.

Tyke wasnt feeling very photogenic

Another skirt.

i fell in love with these butterflies so had to make a askirt the same day.
