Late last year, I sewed my first ever item for an animal - joey pouches for injured Australian wildlife. These little pouches were super easy to sew, and making them has used up some of my flannelette stash.

Scrap Busting ~ Flannelette Quilt

Another quilt finished! This was such a quick make, and I'm really happy with the result, especially given that the top is made entirely from flannelette scraps.

Drawstring Library Bag

Children have a habit of growing up, and way too quickly. What was once cute becomes babyish all too quickly. Little Miss presented me with some fabric to make a new library bag - one that was more suited to her age.

Maxi T-shirt Dress to Midi Gathered Skirt ~ Refashion

Little Miss recently presented me with a bag of sewing that she wanted me to do for her. Amongst the items was the maxi rainbow t-shirt dress I had made her a couple of years ago. It still fitted fine, but she no longer liked how it looked on her.
