Called into spotlight on Friday afternoon to grab a few things and they had a whole table of material for $2 a metre i could have gone mad if money hadnt been a problem LOL. I got the brown tie dye chiffon and the brown cotton drill and the gorgeous brown floral cord with sequins. Hubby picked out the love hippy material and the strippy material i got to make DD's some light weight jackets. As well as more jammie material and 4 rolls of trim marked down to $1.50 a roll.

Well it got cold here yesterday so i thought id make some of the cord up that i have had just sitting around. Helen should recognise the pants material LOL. I trimmed it with a plain purple cord i got of ebay i like them now i just have to get some purple to make a top to go with it. Im not real keen on how T's overalls turned out i had heaps of trouble getting them all together last night but they are ok. They have pockets on the back trimmed with the same material that Ronas are made out of. Rona's overalls im pretty proud of they too were fiddly but i think they turned out pretty good and they look cute on LOL. T's overalls are in a diff post cause blogger wouldnt let me load 3 pics.

More material i got given so what else to do with polar fleece but to make nappies LOL. DD nearly 1 wasnt in a happy mood when i made her stand still so she threw herself down and chucked a wobbly . I made 4 new nappies on Saturday but as usual i forgot to take
This is DD4's "happy feet" nightie she gets very upset when it has to be washed LOL.
I got given the material and my eldest DD loved it so i made these PJ's out of it for her. They are pretty easy but had a problem with the under arm bit it turned out to loose so i might ha
ve to adjust the pattern.

This is the cushion i made for a friend i met while my Daughter was in hospital in 2004. The day i met her her Daughter Jess was in for surgery to remove a tumour from her stomach.
In the following year we spent a lot of time at Ronald Macdonald House while my little girl was either in hospital or down for appointments and Jess was going through chemo.
We had babies a month apart the start of last year and Jess was in remission. Late last year they got the news that her tumour was back and that there was nothing they could do.
Jess passed away on the 6th of Feb this year so i wanted to make something for her mum to keep.

The pattern is a bit fidly but i think it turned out ok oh and i also did a buttonhole **happydance** LOL. Its a size two but it is a bit big on my DD i think it would actually fit my 4 year old.

The pink is interlock i got it really cheap from spotlight (dont know why) I think im going to make the girls some little dresses to wear around the house out of it. The lemon and white check was also on special at spotlight am going to make pants and the little bib front dress i think.
The other material is only bits and pieces i got given from the old lady over the road there is enough to make little skirts or pants out of each piece just cant make up my mind LOL.
I got some of these the othe day at my local material shop. The teddy bear one is actually a deep purple im going to make pj's out of it. DD3 loves the yellow flower one i want to try the teired top with that but will have to work out pattern first. I think the gingham one would be nice for a dress im not sure but LOL
These are the patterns i bought for the girls im going to make the jammies today i think i can do them without having to read the instructions LOL . I really want to do the tiered top but i cant understand the instructions at all they just don't explain in English .
