Rainbow Cushion and Dolly

Designed and created my me!!
I have had this cushion design in my head for a couple months now and last weekend I put it onto paper and made it.

I have used my own hand dyed homepun, a cushion insert I nicked off the lounge and completed it with a dolly :D
I am really happy with it!

I might make a couple up for the markets. Now that I have the pattern organised..they are super quick to run up...
But first, you guessed it, to the Cairns Show!

A new doll I designed and made a couple months ago.

I got a little stuck on clothing but then two weekends ago, I decided!
How cute are her little pants!!

I am really happy with how she turned out, I just love making these dolls :D

From Daddys jeans to a SILVERLAKE JACKET!

Via the embrodiery machine :D
This SILVERLAKE JACKET pattern is in my all time favourite sewing book Sewing Clothes Kids Love. It goes together so easily and you can really play round with fabric and embroderies.
The embroderies I used are London Calling from HUUPS

Mollie isn't sure about it...I have hung it in my sewing room so hopefully she will grow to love it. But first it is off to Cairns Show!!

This is such a pretty pattern!!
It is Farbenmix FELIZ pattern.
It is a real combination of fabric from a Stenzo overdress to quilters gingham to Michael Miller Dots!!

I have used a couple different ribbons to decorate the front with a Huups mandala embrodiery from Florafox set

And another off to the show!

El Porto for the show

There was alot of :D this going on when I finished it this morning. I have been working on it for two days now and I am well chuffed with the result

Pattern: El Porto
Fabrics: denim, red stars and red and white dots (inside fabric) from SL, a little homespun and blue gingham
Decos: embroideries- Deerstar, littlechirp and star tag from Huups, red and blue bias, blue and red star ribbon and lots of ric rac from CM

I am making a few pieces for the Cairns show this year as a way to kick start my market plans (yep, still planning) I thought El Porto was a great pattern to showcase my sewing skills.

There are 7 pockets including a media one for your ipod (nice), two zippers, a few new techinques for me ie hong kong seams, it a good size duffle bag!

For those planning on making one: I worked out a trick too. After I attached the first side of the bias on the circular ends, I hand stitched down the other side. It worked a treat, a much neater result. I know I would make a mess if I used the sewing machine but this way worked fine! is one of those patterns that is unreal..when you have finished :) I really enjoyed the challenge though!
