Black Dress

Pattern: Butterick B4389
I made this dress for my sister's wedding with some much needed help from my clever mumma. The fabric is Silk Dupion which is perfect to fancy up a simple dress. I made a belt from 40mm black ribbon that was pinned on with a brooch made from the same flowers that were on my sister's wedding dress.

Snap Frame Purse

Pattern: 200mm Purse Frame from Nicole Mallalieu
This was made for my sister as her wedding bag. She wanted a strap so I added a loop on each side, so the purse could have a detachable strap.

Chick and Egg

Pattern: Chick and Egg by Alan Dart
I made these as part of my handmade Easter tradition. To avoid possible chick confusion, my boy's chicks have blue wings and my girl's chicks have green wings.... not coincidentally, their favorite colours.

Wheat Bags

Project: Wheat Bag with removable cover
These are good old wheat bags, ready to keep two dinosaur-loving 3 year olds toasty warm this Winter.

Because they are for kids, I made the covers removable and therefore, washable.
