Christmas Decorations to Sew

I thought I would share with you some of my favourite Christmas Sewing patterns I have found.  I love making handmade Christmas decorations.  They make great gifts for family & friends or as something special to decorate your own home too.  They are fun to make and get me into the Christmas spirit while I’m making them.

Getting Ready for Market

We have our local Makers Market coming up on the 6th of December – and I am going to have a stall there!  My lovely friend Lisa & I are going and we will be selling lots of handmade softies & other handmade goodies too.   I am really looking forward to this and looking forward to talking to lots of people that enjoy handmade things.  If you are anywhere near Bairnsdale please come by and have a look.  There are some wonderful stalls there and I love seeing all this creative talent in one place.  It’s a great time to pickup a special handmade gift for someone for Christmas too.













It has been quite a while since we have had a stall at the market – and so I have lots of samples to sell from my designs plus ones I have made up especially for market too.   You’ll find samples of my Don’t Worry Dolls, Easy Softie Designs, Pocket Penny Dolls, Christmas Birds, iPod & iPad Covers, Kitty Cat Heat Bags and a few other things too.


I’d love to see you if you can drop by.  It’s on Saturday the 6th of December 8am – 2pm at Boucher Hall, Bairnsdale Secondary Collage, Bairnsdale Vic.

Happy Sewing!


A week of celebrations


It has been a week of celebrations around here!  Both my husband and son are lucky enough to have their birthdays on the same day – and so it seems like be have been celebrating all week!  It was Melbourne Cup public holiday Tuesday and the kids also had an extra day off school Monday too – so we had a great long weekend together too.

We had a family birthday celebration all day Tuesday together, then my son had some friends over for a party after school Friday.  So we’ve had streamers and party decorations and party food around all week!  We also had 3 birthday cakes to eat too!

My daughter made this lego cake for her brother which as you can see he just loved!




I finished my Mike the Monster in time for my son’s birthday too – and he really loves it.  I enjoyed crocheting this and actually liked the challenge of the tricker parts like the fingers and toes.  It’s not perfect but my son was happy with it which was the main thing!  This is a free pattern by Stacey Trock from FreshStitches which you can find HERE.

Now I need to recover from all the birthday celebrations and over indulgence of party food!

Happy Sewing!
