Habby Swap

This is what I received from my habby swap partner Mummykatie. Very happy, I'm sure I'll use it all. Had fun doing this swap. Ready now for another one. Can't be too hard though. Dance silly season is upon me and I have a list of costumes to be done for solos and groups. Picked up the fabric for the 1st costume today

What to do for a 40th

This has been my latest project. I found a pattern on line an adjusted it to fit. It is for a friends birthday today. It is the 1st time I have done applique. I am pleased with how it turned out.

Thought I'd do a catch up post. This dress I posted about previously, but I hadn't finished. All done now. Not fussed on the colours and DD4 hasn't worn it yet, hope it will get some wear.

I made this dress for DD1. She liked the fabric. It can be worn with or without the tie around the waist.
This was made from a pattern, but I only traced it and didn't have the instructions for putting it together. I'd like to try it again in a different fabric. This one had too much stretch in it.

This skirt is for DD3. I just used the waist/length ratio. The edges were rolled hemmed.
