Vintage Anyone?

Well after months of my teenage daughter nagging me to make something from some curtain material I picked up in an Op Shop about 6 years ago, we finally put our scissors to work.  With the help (uhumm) of artful teenager we commenced a journey in which of course I took over the whole project, purely through frustration and slowwwwwwwwwwwness of the artful teenager, who might I say has not a clue how to sew!!  Look how our little skirt turned out!  And guess what?  I added a ZIP!!!! YAYYYYY!

What a weekend of Mahem! Getting ready for the BrisStyle Markets

Well Can I say I sewed my little tootsy off this weekend, thanks to a little tuorial I found on how to insert Zippers!!!!  Yes a sewer I am, but I have stayed clear of zips as they look increadibly scary.   Well after watching a tutorial on the internet, I am addicted to zipping.  Have a look at these little Coin / phone / girly purses I made on the weekend


And I also made some little Smock dresses that will look adorable with leggings Jeans etc..

I found some denim I have had in my stash for about 4 years that I have never thought of using only because I forgot it was there!!!!  Is that common hehe...... Im loving the meadowsweet collection!
