Tick and Tick...

Well I have been very busy all afternoon and actually managed to get a few more things ticked off my 'to do' list.

First of all, I got my SIL's birthday present finished. Her birthday was on Tuesday but I knew that I wouldn't see her until Christmas day so I put it off for a few days to get some other sewing done.

So this is what I made her.

A Make-up bag.

I used a Fat Quarter of Nancy Blues (28959) by Windham Fabrics for the main colour and a cream bold cotton for the lining and the bottom trim. I clipped and sewed the corners on the bottom to give it a bit of a box shape on the bottom.

I really like the way it turned out that I'm thinking of making myself one (maybe after Christmas though).

I have also finished another dress. This time it was for Chelsea. Her Christmas day dress.

I used the left over fabric from Sophie's dress to quickly whip this one up. It is a simple shirred dress but I made some armholes and only shirred the top part of the dress. I then sewed on some lilac bias tape around the armholes and up into some shoulder ties and also as a trim on the bottom of the dress.

This is Chelsea saying "lessee" (Let's see) which she says after EVERY photo I take. It has become a lengthy process taking photos of her now as I have to show her on the preview screen what the photo looks like. Kids!! hehehe.

Anyways, it is almost bedtime, hopefully I can finish my list tomorrow so I can relax on Saturday :)

As always, Thank you for reading and have a lovely Friday...


  1. Lovely bag. Love Chelsea's dress. How is the new sewing machine going? We have rain this morning. Have a nice day.

  2. Too cute Vicky. Chelsea is so sweet. Love the bag... yes you must make one for yourself... I used to do spongebags and lined them with shower curtain type stuff to make them waterproof.
    Have a super Christmas

  3. Hi Vicky,
    I'm just searching for your email address to send you a message regarding the "Name Game Swap", but so far haven't been able to find it.
    Could you please reply with your email address. Thanks so much.
