Pink And Turquoise Flamingos 50s Tie Front Shirt

Hello hello!

Today was a great day for me for two reasons.
Firstly I finally got to go on a test ride on my new (second hand) bike. And it was a beautiful ride along the canal and then up towards the hills. Oh I'm so happy with the bike!!
Secondly I was wearing my newly sewn flamingo shirt which I love even more than my new bike!^_^
The sad news is that the summer is leaving us now, autumn definitely was felt is in the air...

Anyway weather aside here it is:
My pink and turquoise flamingos 50s tie front shirt!



Freshly screen printed flamingos:































What do you think? Aren't the flamingos sweet?^_^

Personalized Designs For Babies

Hello and good afternoon!

What an amazing day we are having here in Edinburgh! The sun is shining and not a cloud in the sky! That's a very rare thing for us! The city always comes alive on days like this! The sun makes it all the more amazing!
I have all the windows open and I am enjoying those sun rays creeping into my studio.
I have lots of sewing to do, very busy and very happy^_^

This morning I was shortening a few vintage maxi dresses and making up skirts on thick black elastics from the cut offs, the change is amazing. But enough about that! I wanted to focus this post on personalized designs that I have been working on lately and share them here.

This is a baby blanket with appliqued name, it's made of heavy cotton with really nice prints, backed with soft baby blue fleece and a contrasting dark blue bias banding. It turned out quite nice, didn't it?

Here is my work in progress:


securing appliqued letters with satin stitch


Attaching bias binding

And here it is!!^_^





And now personalized monkey toy for a new born baby- made of fleece, felt and cotton with hand embroidered name, date and even time! Isn't it just sweet?





Hello!!Here I am!!





And another blanket for a baby girl this time. It has sweet felted creatures stitched onto it and hand embroidered name. What do you think of this one? Cute, huh??







And last but not least baby quilt. Oh so pink!! With appliques and a thick wadding inside, so warm!







Oh what a collection!^_^
There will be more so please come back again.

And in the meantime have a lovely day!
