Sweet Little Bag and other things....

I purchased this bag pattern a little while ago from Geta's Quilting

This cute little bag is made from one of the patterns.. Bella I think the pattern is called. 

My little girl took it to school for news and the teacher put an order in for Easter.
I thought the little side pockets would fit a couple of caramel eggs inside and of course the inside of the bag would have to have some too!

The yoyo centre is a vintage button from my button collection

The little bunny is one I made last year for Easter. I made a pink one and a blue one.
The pattern for these little cuties is from a Homespun Magazine. The designer was Cath

Also

I decided to have a go at a QAYG quilt.

Here are the blocks made up
As you can see it is made from one of my favourite colours PINK!
I may be giving this away to a dear friend that is going through a major crisis. I just have to find out if she likes pink!

Last week I attended the craft show. In New Zealand we have a dress designer called Annah Stretton. I have had an eye on her wrap dress and skirt for sometime but didnt want to buy the price for it. Well at the show they were selling the kit sets to make these amazing dresses. 
Guess what...??
I bought one
Received it yesterday in the post
and finished it last night.
It took me about 8 hours to make... at times I was finding it very hard to make and was going to give up. I am useless at reading patterns.. but I forced myself to do so.. 
The final outcome is amazing.. and I cannot believe I actually sewed it myself..


It looks exactly like this


and it can be worn all sorts of ways




If you are interested in entering the giveaway for a Jill Mass doll Pocket Angel then go to the below post and to go into the draw I will draw it early next week.

Happy sewing
