Hippity Hoppity Easters on its way

Found some adorable Easter print fabric, so figured why not make some Easter gowns!

Am still waiting on a more feminine print to arrive, am keeping my fingers crossed but am quite worried it isnt going to show up!

Stay tuned for gown pics, they jsut need to have their press studs attached and they are ready to go

Flannel Blankets

So i have had this brilliant idea to make flannel blankets!! What i am/was thinking i do not know! But i figured there needs to be something other than those horrid striped baby blankets you can buy in the shops

So i went a bought some flannel :-)

This is a special one, Breast Cancer awareness

This is the 90% finished product. I just need to press it and top stitch it then it is done, tonight my eyes are telling me it should really wait until tomorrow!

I had a brilliant idea to make the boys some little minkee quilts for in the car during winter. Like a lot of things it seemed like a good idea at the time but minkee is not my friend!

Dont let anyone ever tell you that it is easy to sew with because it certainly hasnt been for me! Thankfully i seem to have sussed it out now and it is a little bit easier but i think i prefer plain old cotton any day!

So here is one i have started, ignore the double up of the same colour. I had all my nice neat little piles after laying it out and orgainsing it and i am guessing some little fingers got in there and muddled it all up! Its not the greatest job but minkee is not my friend! Its not finished yet, still have to add some more and then do the backing - am thinking some lovely lush flannel for the back

A little update

I realise that i haven't updated here in a very long time. My premmie sewing is going really well, i have currently donated 148 gowns to parents and hospitals around the country. That number is set to rise int he next few days as i have 24 ready to go to a SCN once i put the finishing touches on them.

Here are some recent gifts that have been sent to parents.

Australia Day

I made several gowns for babies who were in hospital for Australia. I figured we are becoming more and more patriotic here in Australia so why not :-)

We're on Facebook

well, ok i am on Facebook. I started my own little group on Facebook, i guess in a way to open myself up to more premmie families and their friends.

Has proved to be a wonderful thing, i am now in the very fortunate position to be able to help many more families and bring a bit of joy to their day.

Stay tuned for lots of projects over the next few weeks. Am starting a very exciting one tonight - very exciting!!!
