Sewing again.....and the best custom eva! (yarn)

More sewing projects......First are some bags for my lil handmade shop - I'm very happy with my template/design and think I might just have to upsize it to make bigger 'tote' bags as well :)



.......................

This is a cute pillowcase dress I finished last night for my biggest princess - I think it's going to be perfect with leggings and considering it cost me all of $2 to make...yay me!!!






............................

This is my latest op shop haul - I adore vintage/retro fabrics and ended up spending $23 and getting this plus a pair of the cutest girly curtains for my girls!!!!!





 ...................................
And I mentioned the best custom eva......I was lucky enough to win a competition held by Yarn and kisses and got the chance to have a complete custom yarn dyed! I sent along this photo from animalspot.com


and got back this gorgeous yarn......


It is simply beautiful in real life - you really need to check out Yarn and kisses shop!

And one last thing - An easy way to deal with your elastic and recycle at the same time........use a plastic takeaway container and cut a small hole in the lid to feed your elastic through. You can then pull out and cut what you need while seeing what you have left AND keeping it all contained nicely :)

Loving your creative mojo at the moment Hun. I know how much you love your yarn, but it's awesome seeing your sewing too. Super great idea on the elastic.
