My first ever blog :) Wonder if I will be able to keep this up or if it will be too time consuming???

I seem to be taking on so many little projects at the moment, all related to making life fun and fabulous for my first born sweetheart Macy.

So I'm starting a blog, how very computer nerdy. But hey......I'm excited. I'm starting this to have my projects & ideas, both completed and ongoing, all in the one place. A visual update for myself, and anyone who may be interested. Especialy one day for Miss Macy Moo

10 May 2012

Ha! I am using a sewing machine!

The last time I ever used a sewing machine I was in high school and made a very unattractive apron.

I've always been appreciative of crafty things but over the last 2 years I've actually been drawn to make stuff.  I don't know why..... I just wanna make stuff!! Strange!

Anyways, so I got this pretty basic sewing machine a few months back and haven't had the time really to do much. The other day it was staring at me, I got the guilts, and decided to make something.  Of course it had to be for Moo.

She is so into her dolls at the moment and we have this really cool cradle that was left behind in the house my parents just bought (SCORE!!!) so I decided how hard could it be to make some bedlinen!?!?

Even for an untalented sewer like me..... it wasn't hard at all!!

I don't have any progress shots or anything but really it was just straight sewing! I have some really ordinary homemade fleece blankets that were given to me when Moo came along that I used as the padding for the mattress, quilt and pillow and all the material is bits and bobs my Auntie has given me over the last year.  I now have so much material here (all of a sudden I have a passion for really nice fabrics - seriously....... I have no idea where all this interest in crafts, materials, sewing etc etc has come from.....!!)

anyways......  I was kinda proud of how it turned out (sorry for the iphone pics) Don't you just love my lace detail. ;o)

Today I took my sewing to the next level.  I downloaded some patterns.  Time for Moo to have the best dressed doll on the block.

I started with this very becoming beanie. What to make next?!


  • Main point of the blog yet again - to let the world know that even un-crafty, un-skilled people (like myself!) can actually make stuff :o) !!
