Happy Boy Travel Book and ...

I just could not wait to share with you one of the projects I have been working on lately.

This is a new design that will come out in kit form in my webshop as of next week.

Some of you may remember my cut out doll quilt I made a couple of years back.
The post is here
My little girl loves playing with the quilt and the dolls dressing them up with the clothes.

I wanted to design something for boys to play with as I have a little 5 year old boy that feels a little left out. I went to my drawing pad and looked at this fabric and came up with the idea. 

I am extremely pleased with it and my little man has 'stolen it' claiming it as his. We are off for a holiday to the USA next month and I thought the book would be a great idea to keep him amused for a little of the time on the plane.

Also, some of you are aware that I have been on a weight loss journey.
I have lost 40kg... which is over 80lbs. I have managed to keep this weight off for some months which is a wonderful thing!
The other day I thought I would try on a dress I made for a 'fancy dress' party a few years back.
I was so excited that I could fit it!
Here it is

It is a vintage vogue pattern. With a zip on the side and pin tucks around the waistline. It is an organza overlay with a satin dress underneath. 
I havn't done alot of sewing for myself for a long time. This has inspired me to get out some patterns and get creating. 
I am teaching a sewing class for my eldest daughter and her friends in a couple of weeks. They want to learn to sew a simple skirt. So maybe that day I will take along my machine and sew too!

My class with Lynette Anderson tomorrow!! Yiphee.
