A little red...

I am very excited to be taking part in the Red Riding Hood Yarns birthday showcase!

I have ordered some gorgeous fabric and have started on my first item today...did I mention that Hannah will be starting to put the items up on Saturday night? Yes I am leaving it to the last minute!

The fabric is cut and I have sewn the bodice of this dress. I hope to be able to get the appliqué on the apron done tonight as well and hopefully I will have happy little girls tomorrow so I can finish putting it all together.

I would like to get a skirt and t-shirt set done too and was thinking that some hair bows and clips might be nice to complete the set....if I can get it done!

Better get back to it...I might have a cuppa first though!

Skirts

Posting from my iPad for the first time! Woo hoo! I do love my new toy! Just as a little test I thought I would share with you some skirts I have made this week with some echino fabric I have been holding onto.

Well I finally managed to work out how to get photos in the post! Lets see if I can post it now!

Hello again!

I am really not good at this blogging regularly thing! I tend to get distracted by all sorts of pretty things! New fabric, yarn, the latest knitting pattern, Pinterest, my Wee Threads store…and the list goes on. I guess I should just share my little distractions with you, then you can all be distracted with me!

Anyway, this is what I have been up to since my last post. Lots of Wee Threads orders that I have had fun getting together. I think I sold about 20 of the bloom t-shirts! They aren’t in the store at the moment as I was finding it hard to keep up with the orders. I will need to find a new way to list them(maybe premade instead of made to order) and get some more into the store.

Once again I overcommitted and tried to do WAY too much. So it is time for a couple of things to go. Both Princess Boo and the Button Jar will be closing down. I will be organising some closing down sales soon! Yes I am a little sad about it but also relived! I can now focus on my little family and when I do have time I will be sewing for Wee Threads but that too will be changing. No more custom orders as this just leaves me stressed out. I will be making what I feel like in the sizes i want and selling them as ready to go. I know this will limit my market a little but if they don’t sell I can keep them for my girls or give them as gifts. I will be open to suggestions on sizes and colours and might be able to make some things up in colours and sizes that people want but they will go into the store and it will be first in best dressed and that mean no deadline for me so I will be much less stressed and probably get a lot more done!

I do want to thank all of my customers who have placed custom orders. I really appreciate it and I hope I can continue to make things that you all love.

So I am going to get off here and go and clean my kitchen and get dinner on and then maybe I will have a little bit of time to sew!
