The Pink Post!

Hello!  I am still kicking around someplace.  Just no current sewing finished because of life's busy little schedule!  So I thought I would take this opportunity to post about a few things I have previously made for my "gift box"  but couldn't give away until I had taken a photo of them.  There is a lot of stuff in my "gift box" and I don't want to overwhelm people with too much all at once, so I decided to show the pink ones.

Flower pincushion  pattern found here in a free tutorial!

Needle book pattern used can be found in this book here.  I cheated with the flower!  It is an iron on! 

Baby booties made using Heather Baileys "bitty booties" pattern.  It's a free download you can get from her blog here.

Wristlet made by me "winging it" again.  Actually I don't mind how it turned out,  especially  when its made using leftover fabric and an old recycled buckle!

With pretty pink lining!  Also a scrap of knit fabric from an old jumper that compliments the pink velvet outer fabric with its soft texture! 

My attempt at log cabin patchwork.  I feel I need to practice with a tutorial that has a few measurement guidelines for me! 

Has some pink in it!  If you look closely enough!  lol.  Pattern used is from this book here.  These slippers are a size 7/8 adult and ended up in the "gift box" waiting for a winter birthday girl.

Soon I will be able to show the project I have just finished!  I am patiently waiting for the recipient to return from her holiday so that I can give it to her!  It's a surprise.

My next project may take awhile to complete.  Its for a swap and I can't say much more about it really except it's  A DOLL and I am a bit of a learner when it comes to their hair.  But I have a wonderful friend who has led me to some very clear tutorials  that I am looking forward to trying.  By the way its a doll swap so no surprise lol.

So many cute projects! I especially love the needle book and the wristlet. What a great design you came up with on the wristlet. And how clever to use the sweater, too!

Such lovely things - you are an excellent upcycler! I want to literally eat the pot-holder, it's lovely. Patchwork is the most gorgeous looking thing - great when you just can't limit yourself to one fabric!

Every single one of those gifts are as cute as can be! I really love those little pink baby booties - so sweet! And that pink clutch is awesome!

Wow, these are really wonderful gifts. I do not have a "gift box". It's such a quaint idea (to me). I try very hard not go give people stuff I make because it's so complicated. Will she like it? Will she? And so on. I'm quite floored by the pincushion. I thought it was a bean bag!
