    Yeah! Spotlight is great when they have a $1 -$6/m sale on fabric. I bought some just last weekend and then found out at the counter that it was another 50% off the sale price – bargain bliss!

    LadySophie, just thought I’d say HI. I live in Hamilton NZ. I really like your glove teddy – just gorgeous! And the fabrics you have chosen for your other creations are lovely too.

    nelliethemermaid commented on the project Jakob shirt for Ian

    That is a great Jakob – fabric print and colour is fantastic! I made mine a size smaller than the smallest size too as it seemed a little large. I am also very impressed with the photos – well do…

    nelliethemermaid commented on the project car seat cover

    COOL! I’ve been meaning to do something similar but haven’t gotten around to thinking about how I would go about it. What did you use for the straps? Congrats on now having a pooch hair free car!

    Yeah, the Jakob is a really great pattern to try – it has a nice fitted shape. I took 1cm off the collar though to reduce the size otherwise it was a little too disco….I’d trade the NZ sunshine …

    Hi, a bit late but thanks for your comments on my Pete T’shirt. It was interesting to sew since I’m not used to stretchy material, maybe next time I’ll get a bit more creative!

    Hi, thanks for your comment on my JJ blouse, it was quite easy to get the fit right as my mom and I are the same size (cheat) I’m loving your ‘wintery’ dresses too!
