My Creative Space

The last few weeks have been all about the gathering foot, this week has been applique and yo-yos. I have never made one before and I have to tell you they are a little addictive. I found this tutorial and off I went. I used them to spruce up this little tee to go with the deer pants.
I also finished up the frill dress too, it is a grape purple linen with bird frill and applique. My model was channeling her inner Naomi Campbell today so the photos aren't great again. Thank goodness she didn't have a mobile phone. I so hate the slapping and pinching stage!!
I was hoping to get everything in my Etsy shop before the Mathilda's Market, but I fear I wont have time. If you have seen anything that you like please email me or leave a comment as most of it I don't have any fabric left so I can't make anymore. I will list whatever is left after the market. The market is Sunday week at the Hawthorne Town Hall 9-2, I have already had a few people hoping to drop in - please do! and let me know!

More great creative spaces over at Kirsty's house. Go see she is very friendly.

Those little outfits are so cute! Good luck with the market, I'm a little too far away to pop in but I'm sure with outfits like those it will be a great success.

I love that little red and white print on the first outfit - it's too sweet!

I've got a small who likes to headbutt and punch at the moment, so I know how you feel (ouch!)

I love the yo-yos! I checked out the tutorial so I think I may have to go nuts with it myself and make some for my grandaughters little dresses. Good luck with the markets.

Claire (ethel loves fred) said...

Oh she's just a little pip! All the stages, they seem to go on forever when you are in the middle of them. But pretty soon she'll be saying things like "I'd like to walk to school today Mum, so I can feel the breeze on my knees" (This is what little P said to me this morning - made me giggle out loud)!

Verry nice...the yo yo goes so well on that top...sort of ties it in with the ruffles on the bottom of the pants...
