Amy Butler top

I haven't made myself clothes for maybe 15 years, but I fell in love with this Amy Butler fabric, so I decided to try out a pattern from a Cotton Friend magazine.

I love Amy Butler's latest fabric range - I think I'll make some more.

I have a SMALL addiction

I've tried to beat my addiction to Japanese magazines, but I just keep relapsing.

If anyone would like to see what's inside any of these, leave a comment.

Also, for any Australians, Jetstar is having a sale on flights to Japan - so cheap - so get on your laptop and book one now! I'm going in a few months time. So happy!

Pudding Fruit Parfait

Thank you so much to all the lovely people who have left nice comments on my blog recently. It's been really good to meet you. After a bad day at work, I am now going to read all of your blogs and find out what cosmopolitan and exciting lives you lead in different parts of the world. That will put me in a good mood again!

Here's a little beaded charm I made on the weekend.

BIG HEAD small body

I made this retro looking fawn with a rather enormous head.
The pretty sakura fabric is from Marunan in Shibuya, where I will be stocking up again soon.

Quilts for Japan

A young lady in Tokyo was collecting handmade quilts for children still living in evacuation centres after the tragic earthquake and tsunami.
So I decide to make one each for a boy and a girl.

With the scraps, I made softie rabbits for something extra to cuddle.

I didn't realise how much fabric I had in the cupboard, most of it never even looked at. So now I feel happy I have put it to good use.
