Following on from the ‘making things in miniature’ theme, these are a few of the wee taggies I made last week. I had a hoot making them, not only because I love the designs on the panels, but also because it was such fun choosing the different types of tags so there were different colours, lengths and textures.
I love the wee red ribbon that looks like a tape measure, and was quite taken with the blue checked elasticated ribbon too – so much fun to pull and fiddle with 🙂
I keep a couple of taggies button-free so they are suitable for little babies who might suck and chew on them, and added fun buttons onto others aimed at slightly older children who want more to touch and explore and who are less likely to try to eat them!
It’s been another good sewing week, and my favourite pieces are these bright and colourful frocks I’ve made.
It’s a no-brainer that I’d fall in love with the giraffe frock, since I have a rather sizeable giraffe obsession, but even accounting for that, you have to admit this fabric is just divine. I’d like to thank my gorgeous friend Alice for gifting it to me – she is just the best.
Happy Giraffes Dress
The rangoli dress is made from a panel I found in a sale and just couldn’t resist. I just adore it, not least of all because of the sassy strip down the back. Wouldn’t that bring a bit of oomph to the cold winter months?

I’ve been busy making my new wee range of snugglies this week, and what fun it is creating snuggly things. The only difficulty is trying to persuade my almost-three year old that they are not all for him.
Here are some of the cutesies made so far, a few of which have already gone to a new home.

There are also spiders and a socktopus… all as snuggly and cute as a button. I can’t wait to see what I come up with nest, tee-hee.
