My Creative Space

Haven't had chance to take any picks of my Christmas items so thought I would show you what I had made for my son to wear at a wedding we all went to.

I got the fabric from Thea who kindly let me buy some of her linen before she printed on it, I also have some printed fabric & will show you soon what I will be creating with that.  Thea has just been featured in January's edition of House Beautiful so please go get a copy I'm of to get mine today!!

Perfect fit on the shorts he is such a dot we always have trouble finding a size were the waist  doesn't fall down bless him!!

And here he is arr get up off that floor tee hee, well what can you do he is a boy & had the best time,  any one who has a boy knows what they get up to.

It lasted the day, no seams coming undone, no buttons I covered fell off, a result & I thought a handsome one at that, well I am his mum so I can be biased can't I ???

I will be making some sizes to put up on my made it site in the new year so keep a look out,  or e-mail me your size so I can get one made up for you.

Ps I know my creative space is having a break till next year for the links but I thought I would do my own little one today :))

Get noticed

Missed my creative space yesterday as getting the house organised for my mum & dad who are spending Christmas with us YAY!!!  All fetched from the airport so Christmas has begun at my house :))

So here we go a bit late but thought I would share with you  a notice board I created for a friend.  At the top part all the paper work & notes can be added, then at the bottom I made a chalk board so shopping list or messages for the family can be written.

Finally a cute bag for the chalk to go in, it can be hung on the hooks that are holding the chalk board, I might have to make one for myself now.   

I wish I had brought more of that vintage looking fabric looking at it again I'm thinking of all the other things I could have made with it!!!

Thanks for stopping by & enjoy the weekend
