Foot Pouf or Cushion?

Love this pouf!
It's so colourful :)

Drink Can Wrap

This is a great idea to keep your drinks cold and stop them slipping in your hand on a hot Summer's day.

Looks super-simple, too.

DIY Belt Cover Tutorial

Isn't this the best idea?

Take any belt or strap and make a hundred different covers for it!

This is another one for my must-do list.

Picnic Blanket with carrying case

Amy Butler's designs are beautiful, and this free pattern is right up my alley (since I'm such a cheapskate).

Made with laminated fabric, your blanket will last for years.

Oversized Owl Handbag

I've just got to have one of these bags!

I'm so sick of boring, black vinyl (leather just isn't in our budget & I would never spend that much on a handbag anyways) bags with no personality, and never the right sort of pocketspaces.

Except mine will be blue, and I have just the fabric in my storage box. Just gotta unpack it... um...

Playroom Floor Cushions

I love these cushiony-seat-things-with-handles!
They're so practical for kids to drag around the place

Now all we need is to build a playroom to put them in.
(our house is s.m.a.l.l.)

The Sewing Machine is finally Out Of Storage!!

At last!

After two years in it's box, I've found the time and the space to unpack my sewing machine, and I'm sooo happy.  :D

Made some heat packs today, with rice filling & we're all soooo cosy and warm.

Look forwards to much more updating of this blog from now on ;)

Fabric Pinwheels
