I got this groovy mag today. Here's my friend Fi's stuff- does she ever stop? Here as well.... (she made Pepper!)
And on a different page, completely different article- my phone cover! Well, an I-Pod/ i phone cover, does mine nicely in chenille. Hmm... this is becoming a habit.

Was having a busy night in tracing patterns, ironing etc, when I glanced at Ebay and found these great buys. All from the same shop, here. In my (spending) Paypal account I had a bit of money, so treated myself with this, this and this. I think the bag will be one of my Sewjourn projects, or will make it to take up there, as it is a weekend away. I'll look at the fabric for a bit before chopping up- I'm thinking bibs or the like for my Made It shop. Any suggestions?

We managed to get back to Clegs (beautiful stuff) and Lincraft (city store amazing, so much craft stuff!). Yarn sales at both, but be warned they don't open until 11am and 12noon respectively on a Sunday. Officeworks also came up with the goods- my $3.99 vintage Dymo labeller has moved into the 00"s with funky new tape! They still have the standard blue, red and bottle green, but why would you? The clear is cool, too.

Putting studs in...notice the stuff up?
And lots of labels!
Ok, so I have learnt:
Lots of layers mean domestic sewing machines DO crack the shits occasionally.
Lots of pics before hand will remind you of how it's meant to look at the end.
Always check to recipient likes animal print (Bam-Bam!).
Make sure there is enough fabric for the matching top.
Plan for babysitting the weekend you want to finish this.
Relax and enjoy it! Remember the old one? Could I do worse?
It is back to it's owner this arvo, looking forward to her response!
Edit: She loved it! Now onto the hood.
