Cuter than lice...

It's been a while since I've had the chance to really even step into my sewing room...Emma has kept me super busy of late and I'm really pooped by the end of the day. Our latest drama was head lice, yuk! Anyway you don't want to hear about that, so I thought you might like to see one of my recent acquisitions from my trip to Hong Kong. So much cool Japanese stuff available over there, especially books and magazines, Mr Man only allowed me a few.
I liked the idea behind this book called 'Petite Remake Clothes for Girls' (ISBN 978-4-7661-2113-1), lots of simple ways to turn plain garments in to something a little bit special.

One day when I'm over the lice debacle I may give some of these cute outfits a go...

The Shop...

I've been promising to sell off some of my fabrics for a very long time...we're getting one step closer. I'm excited, it means I may be able to see the floor in my sewing room day!

For pins and needles...

I'm a firm believer that you can never have too many pincushions. I've made these little pin cushion sculptures using a felting technique called needle felting. I'm tempted to open a little Made of Cloth online shop so I can put them up for sale, and maybe sell some vintage fabric packs too. what do you think?
