Stuff I've made :)

I've been a bit frustrated lately, mainly because I've got so many projects on the go and just haven't had any finishes lately... are you like that? I tend to get a bit depressed when I just seem to be slugging away and not having anything to show for it...

Anyway I thought I should get over it and show you some of the things that I have made in the last few months :)

I absolutely LOVE this top! It's made with Art Gallery fabrics using the School House Tunic pattern. This one is a sample for the shop, but I actually made one for myself as a work uniform in a Joel Dewberry Voile fabric, it wrinkles like crazy, but its sooo comfy :) (oh and check out all those donuts! we only have 1 left)
 Heres a cuter than cute Lazy Day Hat, made from the Make it Perfect Pattern. I love this pattern, I've actually made a few of them for my kids too, quick and easy and too too cute!
 I think I've shown you these before, but I'm sure you wouldn't mind looking again :) These are the Melly and Me pattern, I think its called Hootie and Tweet. Super Cute! I just love that strip, too bad we've run out...
 For some reason I just love taking pictures of these DMC Threads....
 Here's the Mushrooms from the Cinderberry Stitches book, I must admit I didn't actually make these, my mum did, but I liked the picture :)
 Here is another Make It Perfect pattern, the Downtown Boy, I love this Jacket! I've made stacks of them, This one is made with flannel both inside and out. I made one for my son this winter using Denim and orange thread for the top stitching, and lined with flannel,its so cute! I will have to get a good picture of it one of these days :) I just realised, all my kids have Make It Perfect Jackets this year, My eldest has a Sprout Jacket and my other 2 girls have the Uptown Girl Jacket and my Son's is obviously the Downtown Boy.
 This Jacket was one of my biggest challenges ever! Its a girls size 8 I think from an Oliver and S pattern, The pattern was very good and thorough, but we used a Velveteen fabric by Anna Maria Horner. The fabric is beautiful but it was the first time I'd used it and it fraid like crazy, we made a second one and we just overlocked (serged) all the pieces first and it was much better!
So I hope you've enjoyed looking at some of my finishes... even if they were 4 or 5 months ago hehehe
