If all the world were paper

It would look something like this. One child loved this game and is still playing, one used lots of sticky tape and cut up little bits of paper and the third ate crayons.

A pillow with pockets

It began it's life as a rather large cardigan, then I felted/fulled it in the washing machine so I could make a cushion. I put new buttons on it (the originals were scaveneged by my sister who I got the cardy from) and I love it!

Made some earrings

I do not have pierced ears and have never had very exciting earrings, until now. I bought some clip backs and made some little owl ones. I also made some others as I couldn't resist and am busy making christmas gifts too. So fun!

A present from my mum

I have such a good mum. She sent me this lovely pack of summerville from Want It Need It Quilt just because she thought I would like it. It has been making me cheerful ever since and I can't yet decide what to make.

Hair gel drawing thingos

As seen on pinterest. I think when we make a new lot I will put less hair gel in. These ones are a little puffy. Otherwise they have been great fun.

Yesterday was plain awful

No matter what I tried I wasn't able to stop the whole day being terrible and horrible. It sucked. Today though I have determined to be extra awesome so the day turns out nicer, and what could be more awesome than some cheerful cupcakes?

WARNING: Post contains feminine hygine products

I personally don't think pads and such are gross, but know that some people do. I have been thinking for a while about going cloth and then one of my sisters mentioned she was going to give it a go and I got brave. These are the first of my new stash and I am super happy with them so far. I used my old pads as a bit of a pattern and added to the wings. They have a layer of PUL, three layers of bamboo fleece and have quilting flannel on the outside (all things I had on hand). They are super comfy and super cute. I will be making more soon!

A shop

I left the room for about five minutes and came back to see this perfectly formed shop. Love the creativity of children.

Playing with jewellery

I have been having lots of fun making jewellery in between other projects. It is the perfect refresher when you can't stop making!

A dress for daughter number two.

Minus buttons and buttonholes. I have also finished five pairs of shorts this week, all of which have been worn already!

A dress finished

I finished a dress. Even put buttons and buttonholes on it (I know, amazing!). I am fairly happy with how it turned out and love how it went together. Little miss is asleep so I am yet to see how it fits her. Hopefully its nice and I can make more!

Cutting out

A combination of growing children and a change of seasons has urged me on to start sewing clothes again. I am cutting out shorts and think next I will buy some patterns and make pretty dresses!
