Lovely Ladies........

How gorgeous are these Embroidery Designs.  I had to use my big hoop for these and I had to sit and hold the bag so it wouldn't get caught in the hoop.   There is another one which is of course Paris and I have already given this one away , but I do intend doing another one. The bags are like a canvas and that was perfect as there are quite a few stitches in the design.  The designs come from Embroideries.  Lots of lovely designs on that sight.

Craft Bag.....

Trying to use up some of the fabric that I have in the cupboard.   I found this and decided I had to make something with it.   I made myself a bag to keep my wool in for the current project and thought that this would make an adorable bag.  The bag is small enough and easy to handle  so it would be perfect for anyone to pick up and take your craft with you.  I love this fabric and the vibrancy of the colours.

Mug Rugs !!!!!

These Mug Rugs were a sew a long for March which I joined. I really loved the way these mug rugs turned out.  Also they were quick and easy which was a bonus. The design was from Bella Bleu Embroidery.

Cord Holders.....

I found this design on the Embroidery Garden site.  The cord holders come in three sizes the small for phone chargers and the large one will fit the cord from a sewing machine.  This is a great idea as I am always getting my phone cord tangled around everything else I have in my bag.     I made them from Vinyl and the design was free from Embroidery Garden.

Make up Bag.....

Many years ago I quilted this piece of fabric and never got to finish the project.   I can't even remember what I was going to make with it.    I needed a flat bag to take on a trip to Brisbane and I had also been watching a video in the Facebook group M.O.M  In the video it showed how to make  these bag/ jacket closures.  I had the perfect project for this idea.  Loved the way it turned out.  I put some clear iron on vinyl on the inside of the bag so that I can just wipe it, if it needs a clean.   A big thank you to Nadine for helping me go outside the box and use my machine to its full potential.

Another Easter Gift.

 I would like to thank Antonia from Embroidery Playground for changing MOM to MUM for us Aussies.   Stitched out beautifully and the cheeky squirrel is from Kris Rhoades.   There is also a fish for the fishermen  and a monkey looking for bananas.  Cooper loved his Easter Gift.....

Easter Gift for Laken.....

I thought this was a really cute idea for a Easter Gift for my Great Grandson.  The little shoe pattern I have had since my Grandsons were little but never got around to making. I  am enjoying making all the things that I never had time to do when they were small and I have time to make for Laken.  The  Bandana Bib was  from an Etsy Shop, Oopsidaisi and it was super easy to make.

Easter Treat Bags...

I joined the February sew a long in the AMEA facebook group, which was making these Easter Treat Bags.  There were many designs to choose from but decided on the bunny and chicken.  There is a clear area in the belly part of the design and it can be filled from the back with Easter Goodies.  A very cute idea for a Easter Gift.  Another very easy In the Hoop design to make on the Embroidery Machine.

Happy Easter...

I would like to wish all my family and friends a very Happy Easter and please stay safe over the Holidays..      This is my Great Grandson Laken and his first Easter.  He is nearly 4 months old, they grow so fast. I am having lots of fun with photoshop and still have a lot to learn.

Bunny Stuffies......

 First time at making Stuffies.   I had this small piece of soft fabric that was just perfect for the bunnies and I managed to get three.  They were made In the Hoop on the Embroidery Machine. Not sure where the design came from but so quick and easy and of course my Great Grandson Laken was given one.      So cute he can hang onto one ear.   I also put a little rattle in them so that they would make a noise.

Logo on Shirts . . . .

I was asked to do a logo on some shirts for a small business in town.  I had the logo digitized by Kris Rhodes and it stitched out great.  The client was happy and so was I at the way they turned out.


Sewing Caddy in a Photo Frame...

  I belong to a group on facebook called M.O.M. ( Mastering Our Machines ) and after watching the video of Nadine making one of these sewing caddies in a photo frame., I decided to make one.   I now have found out that my machine can join patterns together like the stacked stitches, the middle design.   Now that I have worked that out I will be able to join lots of designs on the machine as I have always used my software to do any alterations.  I am stoked that I am finally getting the most out of my machine.

Crochet Rug

Love how this crochet rug turned out.  Once again it took me ages to find a rug suitable for a boy but really loved this one as soon as I saw it.   As I am only learning to crochet I want to keep doing something new so I am learning new stitches and I get a lot of help from You Tube.  A wonderful learning tool.  The pattern was a free one and is called Park Slope Afghan.  It was a huge job putting it together and I did a Crab Stitch around the edge as I felt it needed something to finish it off.  It is a great feeling when a project is finished.

Bunny Reading Cushion

I decided to join a Sew a Long to get me back into sewing mode.  We were given five designs to pick from and I thought I would do the Bunny for my Great Grandson Laken's first Birthday which is not till December.  I already have a set of Australian story books for him.  So now I have one Birthday out of the way for the year.  These reading cushions are really easy to make it just has a pocket on the front to put the story books.
