"Jelly Roll' Skirt

Miss 'E' found some fabric that I had jammed into a box full of fabric scraps. " I like these ones, are they for me?" she asked.  I couldn't bring myself to give up these Moda 'Jelly Roll' pieces quite so easily.  Although she did insist that she would put them in her cupboard!!

From this..

to this...

So it turns out that Miss 'E' will be able to keep this pretty fabric in her cupboard after all. This little skirt was rather quick to make, so I can see quite a few more 'Jelly Roll' skirts rolling off the sewing table.

'Curtains' for the Races

On a recent visit to our local op shop/garage sale, I found this pair of vintage curtains.  At first I was thinking neck tie dress and pockets for an A-Line pinny, but I have now decided that this pair of curtains will be my Gold Cup Races outfit.  Obviously they are going to need a little more love & attention before race day!!

Little Bags

YES, I have turned my screen printed trees into cute little bags that are fully lined with red spotty fabric.

Sunday Skirts

These little skirts brighten my day.
Simple and easy to wear and were quite popular little sellers at the Easter Market

Yummy tea cups

Little Miss 'E' was turning three and wanted a" tea party with flowers".  My crockery cupboard wasn't up to the task of multiple hot beverages at the same time so we went to visit Nanna Joy.  We asked if we could borrow some cups and saucers and she promptly told us that we could take whatever we liked, and that they didn't need to be returned (yay!!). And then she pulled out a beautiful old basket to carry them in (yummo).

First Ever Market

The Bay Easter Book Fair & Market was held in our little town of Port MacDonnell S.A. as part of its 150th celebrations. This was my first ever market with my 'Edie's Garden' range of little girls clothing. 

Designed & Handmade by me.

screen printed bags with ribbon detail, ribbon & wooden bead necklaces, fabric covered brooches, hair clips

My sign, I was so pleased with how this turned out.

I would really love to take 'Edie's Garden' to some of the beautiful pop up markets like Magnolia Square & Mathildas Market in Adelaide and Melbourne. This little market was a great learning experience for hopefully bigger and better things to come!!
