Baby Girl Bookatrix

Ok I know a lot of sewing has been on my blog lately, but I still have my love of papercrafting.
this was a very nice project to get my paper crafting stuff out and play.
My nephew Adam`s wife Charlene gave birth to their first child on Wednesday morning.
So I just had to make them a special card and chose the bookatrix board.
The above photo is how it looks in its box
 This shows the card out of its box, just love the pretty lace on the edges
A close up of the shoes, it was cut on my Silhouette cameo using a Tina Finch cutting file, that I modified slightly
 A shot of the flowers on top of the box, these came from wild orchid 
 This is Isabella Ivy Hewings, having a cuddle from my daughter Aleysha .

The photo below is her proud daddy Adam, He was very brave and delivered this little bundle on the bathroom floor, her mummy was only in labour for two hours, not in much pain then her waters went and she was on her way, daddy had to deliver her himself before the Ambulance arrived

 Baby and mummy are both doing well

My first Phoebe bag

I am so into bag making at the moment, this is my first Phoebe bag its a free pattern available 
Its So easy to make, and I'm sure it wont be the last Phoebe Bag that I make.
Loved this Clarke & Clarke dog print fabric, just right for a summer bag, fun and cute 

Here is daughter Aleysha modelling the bag so you can see the size, its just right for a day bag, but you can fit lots in it

Here is the inside, I used the red spot fabric again, just love it, I'm almost out of it, so need to get to the fabric shop to buy some more, wonder what else will jump into my basket.
The pocket is a large one but I split and  added two channels to hold pens on the end.
Just need the nice weather to arrive so I can use it.
Thanks for stopping by

Quilted Tote Bag

 Another sewing project, told you I caught the sewing bug.
This is for carrying granddaughters nappies and stuff when we go out, She is nearly one so we don't need to take so much out with us these days,  so I made a bright quilted bag to carry what I do take
 Popped a pocket inside for smaller things, also added a zip, dont like the open Totes
Close up of the quilting.
Loved making this have a smaller one planed for my summer bag.

Quilted Make up bag

Wow two posts in one day, I'm getting back into my crafting now.
As I said in the post below, I have really gotten back into my sewing again.
Made this quilted Make up bag today, A lot of first for me in this project, My first at quilting fabric, went for some simple lines, also my first at doing a Zip, very pleased with how it turned out.
 Love this red spotty fabric, Still have lots left so watch this space
here is a close up of the quilting, not a brave design, just straight lines, but its very pretty when sewn up
Thinking of making a bag next, also the girls in the family also want make up bags after seeing this one, I have a few ideas for different styles of make up bags.


Three Sewing Projects

Been missing from blogging this last month , we all had the flu, I thought it was never going to go away, Coughing, hot and swollen throat for over three weeks, Daughter, hubby and youngest son were all ill at the same time, It was just horrid, but we are all better now.

This week I got out the sewing machine and made a few projects.
Just really enjoying sewing at the moment .
Treated myself to this little Beauty just before I fell ill, so enjoying playing with it again, My other was 40 years old , and needed retiring , I have given it to daughter,I don't know if she will ever use it, but its good enough for a starter machine

 The first is another Sock monkey this is the second one I have made, see my posts below for the other one.
this I made for Grandson Cameron, they are so easy to make, you use a pair of socks, you can find lots of Tutorials on Google and YouTube , they make up really quickly, and are so cute

 My second item is a little Square bag made up from scraps left over from the quilt I made my little granddaughter , I have given it to her mummy to put in her bedroom to drop little baby things into.
Really enjoyed making this little bag, this was my sample one, that why I used left over fabric.
 I'm going to make another one, but I might quilt this one to give the sides extra strength , so the bag is not so floppy 

The third project is a sock cat, Older grandson Keaton wanted a cat instead of a monkey  now he wants me to make him a Monkey also after seeing Cameron's, This one I finish a month ago just before I fell ill, this is my first chance to blog it, again lots of tutorials on Google showing you how to make this and other animals , I found it easier and quicker than the Monkeys to make up.
