Missing For A Week And A Giveaway

Missing For A Week And A Giveaway

I haven't blogged for a week.
Mostly because I have been project jumping and haven't finished anything to show and tell.

Until last night.

I bought the 'Ruffle pants' pattern by 'Portabellopixie'.

They were really fun and easy.

I couldn't tell the back from the front so I sewed a bit of ribbon into the back seam.

Thursday night Oliver and I worked on his valentine box.

Another Oliver + s dress.
It is not finished.
It still needs a button in the back and fancy trim sewn to the yoke.

Freya modeling with her fashion pose and 'Zoolander' look. ( A very bad movie by the way.)

I am working on a group of softies, The Rogue Rabbit Gang.

This is Paul.

I mentioned another giveaway last week.
"Sew Easy' is a great book for brand new sewers.
It includes 12 fun projects and a guide to getting started.

If you would like this book please leave a comment.
On Wednesday I will draw a winner.

I missed blogging and will get my groove together this coming week.

(I had a bit of trouble with spacing.
One day I will sit down and learn Blogger.)


  1. Oh, your rogue rabbit gang is ridiculously cute. Great inspiration for Easter prezzies... And I LOVE the hedgehog fabric you used for the ruffle pants!! I used that for the first-ever pants I made for my Bebe (which had weird fit-over-the-diaper issues, but I loved them anyway).

  2. I love all of the sweet clothes you are making for Freya. My mother used to make my clothes when I was little and I remember how excited I would get to wear a new handmade dress. I would love to enter the giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity.

  3. Found you on Vintage Swap... love the nightstand and the interesting story that goes with it! Your Rabbit Gang is awesome!!

  5. The pants are cute! I've been busy sewing too. I guess I need to post pictures. Count me in for the giveaway!

  6. I have the ruffle pants pattern too! Have yet to crack it open. I would love to be entered in this giveaway. I'm re-learning the sewing machine and this would be a great start.

  8. I love love love the vintage table you put your books in! Very cool. This book would be the PERFECT book to gift my dear friend who has just received a new sewing machine for Christmas. I have been working hard at pulling her over to the fabric/sewing obsessed club that I belong to. This looks like a good starting book for her. Pick Me.!

  9. i cannot resist!!! those ruffle pants are awesome!

  10. This book would be a lifesaver! I have no sewing skills whatsoever and am at a complete loss when I lose a button or manage to rip a garment.
