As I mentioned before I'm going home to Oz on Wednesday very exciting. I haven't seen my sister and brotther for 2 1/2 years!! It's mum's birthday on Tuesday so I made her a few presents. Oh it's winter in Oz which explains the scarf!
The scarf is made with Max Mara wool fabric, macrime and a beaded flower. I also made her a book cover with gorgeous linen, trims and a red toile beaded flower. Mum is incredibly creative and she loves to have a book to write her ideas in. I also made her a big bag with a gorgeous French toile fabric (also her favourite fabric) and lined with the ever useful Ikea stripe! Mum can carry her sewing around in it! The pattern for the bag came from my new Japanese linen bag book, it's gorgeous. More images on flickr

In a few days Lulu and I are off to Australia, whoopee. Haven't been home for 2 and 1/2 years! Lucy has been talking about going to Sydney all year (she's 3 1/2 years old) and is really excited. I made this book cover for her so we can write down all she does and log her trip. She says some really funny things sometimes (as they all do at that age) so I think I need to keep track of it, also for her dad who won't be coming with us this time.
The book cover is made with linen and a combination of pretty cotton fabrics. It has been embellished with applique and embroidery. The idea for the embellishment came from my Japanese book ISBN9784834725704 (no idea what the name is!) I bought it from pompadour on Ebay.

Here are some of the dresses I've been working on. The white hydrangea dress is a size 4, made with Max Mara cotton fabric. The pink and blue dresses are a linen mix and have been finished off with some applique. I have these in a size 2 and 3. More images on flickr. Stay tuned I've made more clothing - bit clothing mad I think!!!

Spring is here, this is the perfect bag to complete any spring summer outfit. This bag is reversible so you get two looks in one! The bag is made lovely Italian natural linen. It is lined with a gorgeous Japanese cotton fabric in very soft colours. It has been finished off with a gorgeous trim. The bag can be tied closed.
