sewing for summer

i don't like January much, so in a bid to sew away the January blues i've been busy in my sewing corner this week, having pulled some fabric out the stash, i piled it up in the corner & left the machine out, prompting me to get on & finish what i start

first up i made a little birthday present for one of G's friends, 

a quick skirt, made using some Tanya Whelan fabric from her Darla range (i think i bought it ages ago in hobby-craft!)

a little cotton lace along the bottom & there you go!

of course i couldn't stop there & set about making a few summer bits for little O, i'll be back soon with some pictures next week


  1. Really beautiful fabric, so pretty for a little girl xox

  2. Sweeeet! Love the fabric...reminds me of summer days. I'm planning to strike up an intimate relationship with my (almost unused) sewing machine very soon. Scary. x

  3. Well done- that looks like the perfect cure for the January blues- I am determined to get out the sewing machine this week and join you x

  4. Ah it's gorgeous, and I love the fabric.
    It'll soon be February, though I dislike that month so I long for March!!
