Check out what I sewed in 2015! My year in sewing {2015} a review is now on the blog! #isew   #sewing   #handmade   #sewingforkids   #selfishsewing  
As the year wraps up I’ve been reflecting on a lot of things, including the things that I’ve made during the year. As usual there are a lot of things on my ‘to make’ list that I never quite got around too (most of which come ...

I upcycled another adults tee for #kidsclothesweek  ... I scored this top from the Op Shop and refashioned into a nice little one for Isabelle. It was a quick 45 min sew! Yay! Only one day to go! #KCW   #isew   #upcycling  
I’ve just now realised that I seem to have followed a bit of a rule this Kid's Clothes Week, that being – ‘if it looks nice, make it twice.’ I’ve made 2 pairs of Liberty leggings, 2 mustard cardis and little dresses and now ...

For day 3 of #kidsclothesweek  I upcycled an old top of mine and made Noah a #Transformers  Tee! He loves it!
Yesterday, for day 3 of Kid's Clothes Week I made Noah this Transformers tee out of an old T-shirt of mine. (Yes, you read that right, it was originally my tee – back in the late 90s/ early 00s it was kind of cool to wear a t...

I'm sewing along with #Kidsclothesweek  this week, are you? Here's what I made for day 1: matching Liberty leggings for my girls. #KCW   #isew   #LibertyofLondon  
Yay, Kid's Clothes Week is here again! You know that week, 4 times a year where some of us go crazy sewing heaps of things for our kids for new season. Here in NZ we are in the midst of Spring, and I can’t think of anything t...

Wow! No time no blog! We’ve been enjoying the most lovely Summer holidays. I haven’t pulled out my DSLR that much preferring to take most of my pics on my phone and then share to Instagram. (Gosh haven’t the cameras on phone...

Last Sunday my first born, Noah turned 7! His birthday present from us turned out rather batman themed, including a pair of Bat PJs made by me! #sewingforkids   #isew   #sewing   #kidsbirthdays   #handmadegifts  
Last Sunday was Noah’s 7th birthday! I am really not sure where those SEVEN years have gone, I know it’s cliche to say but it really does feel like yesterday that he was my little baby! Noah’s birthday present from us ended u...

I'm sure you're all sick of me sharing my #kidsclothesweek  makes here on my blog! Well, good news today was the last day! (...Until next time!) 

I made Noah some stripey harem pants and I'm pretty stoked with how quick they were to sew and how good they turned out :) #isew   #KCW   #sewingforkids  
Yay! I made it! Today is the final day of Kid's Clothes Week, day 7. I’ve enjoyed it as always, but we’ve been busy with not much spare time for sewing – hence another easy project today! Some simple black and white stripe ha...

Hello everyone! I’m still sewing along with Kid's Clothes Week. I didn’t get much sewing done last night (day 4), but I did manage to make a start on this little peasant dress for Pipi. I had already cut out the little musta...

In the school holidays, Isabelle (with a little help from me) made herself a skirt! Read more on the blog #sewing   #sewingwithkids  
Over the last 2 weeks it’s been the school holidays here in New Zealand. This time they’ve flown past because we’ve been quite busy. The kid’s firstly had three nights away with my Mum and Step-Dad (and we had 3 kid free days...
