Firstly, I finished off 3 pentagon balls for my nieces. They are pinks, blues and purples but each one is different.
|I embroidered each ball with their initial|
Recently when the Australian dollar was awesome I bought up some patterns from Above All Fabric. I had intended to just buy Frida but I ended up buying Sophie, Julia, Nina and Frida as well ;).
I'm really sorry to the australian sellers I know we all should support you, but I'm not paying $20-28.50 per pattern from you when I can buy the same pattern for $12.95 per pattern even with international postage on top of that its still very much cheaper, I just can't justify the difference in prices.
This is the first Frida I've made and now I love it so much I have to make more!
For my cousins little girl for Christmas I made a Frida dress and a pentagon ball using mums fabrics.
I love those little cap sleeves.
And I love the neckline.
I love the contrasting band of colour along the bottom.
I love the gorgeous little elasticised pockets and the ties under the arms.
Actually I love everything about this dress.
And the Last pentagon ball, for my cousins bub.
|I tagged it explaining how the fabrics came form mums stash, made in memory of mum, for them.|
Just enough time to show you my Christmas presents from my husband. A couple more Jamie books to add to my collection.
So a Christmas sewing update and then to sleep finally! 3 hoodies and shorts to go for the boys, and something nice for my cousin, who's been ace and doesn't mind waiting until I finish all the hoodies ;)
