Then some lovely fabric treats from fashionable fabrics. First up some Michael Miller prints to make a special outfit for Lottie. Next some cowboy theme prints for mister monster and also the shop. And lastly an Amy Butler print that I think I will use to make up her nappy bag pattern.
Look at this gorgeous bracelet. I am not really a jewellery wearer, but I always drool over Natalie's lovely designs. I was in love with the greens in one of her pieces and thought they would work perfectly with Lotties Christmas dress as well as all the other green things I seem to keep making her. So Natalie custom made this beautiful piece for her. To make it extra special she used all sterling sliver and added a sweet little extension chain so it will fit even longer. Natalie thinks of everything. It is so much lovelier than the pics show. Check out more of her creations here and here.
This little bunny hopped it's way over to our place too. It has been handstitched onto a bright pink tee by Kylie and is sure to become a favourite this winter.
The postman also bought me a lovely little gift from Helen. She is an amazingly talented quilter and I had asked her for some tips after being inspired by these delicious looking doll treasures here here and here. Helen, found the perfect little pattern for a quilting novice like me to get started on and hopefully it will be all done by Lotties birthday. I want to team it up with a vintage wooden dolls cradle as a special birthday gift. Now to decide what fabrics to use.
And seeing as this post is already full of pictures, how about another one! Here is a sneak peek at an outfit I am making with some vintage nursery rhyme fabric. I am making a few different pieces with it for both boys and girls. They will be listed over at my wahmania shop on Friday night.
