Time to update again!

I've actually been fairly creative lately. Trying my hand at different projects. Which is good as when i am being creative my mind is stimulated and helps me get out of the depression phase. That and when i create i don't reach for comfort food. Here is some pics of what i have created. Minus some pj's i made for Zach.

This is my first pair of earrings i made! And the start of a new obsession lol

Zach wearing his new dinosaur pants. He is so into dinosaurs atm i just had to buy this marterial for him. Zach helped plan these pants by dictating how big and how many and where all 4 of his pockets needed to be placed.

Kaela had wanted dinosaur pants as well. I did not have enough material, let alone copy Zach's pants so i made her a cord pants and added dinosaur pockets and a dinosaur belt. I stayed up to past midnight the night before we went to the Royal Melbourne show as i knew she would want to wear her pants the same time as Zach did.

I found a lovely pattern that i need to search to remember where i found it from. The top part is knitted and obviously the bottom part of the dress is material. This dress is for a craft swap, that Kaela is modelling :)

2nd dress which is for a new baby that is also part of my craft swap present. I loved this material that i received from a FQ swap that i thought it would be lovely made into this dress.

And lastly a necklace i have made for the mummy of my craft swap. The bead shop near work has had a 50% off everything for ages now so i must ban myself before i buy out the shop! Told you, my newest addiction, especially with 50% off, now who can refuse that!

Doll kit as present

I nanny lovely twin girls who love their dolls but alas had no clothes for them, so for their birthday i decided to put together a doll bag with clothes. I took the girls for a trip to Rathdowne remants and allowed them to pick out two material choices.
Below is what i have made, i am very proud of the way they turned out. *Also most these pics are before i added buttons etc.

Bag and doll wrap

2 Tops and 2 pants

Craft Swap

My latest craft swap i decided to make a picnic/hop scotch rug. The material on the bottom is of the water proof nature well it feels like it lol. The top is made from a stretchy material a first for me to sew with. The rug has batting in the middle so is lovely and thick but not too thick.

Making this rug was a learning curve as i have never made anything this big. Add thread breaking, needle breaking and trying to sew the materials altogether was a new one for me. So i didn't want to look tooo closely at my stitching once it was complete lol. But i am very happy with the way it came out.

Unfortunately i am not sure when i can sew anything else until i can get my machine serviced as after this project i went to change thread in the bobbin to make Zach pj's and the machines timing went out. :(
