A bit of sewing for fun

There’s a sew along happening on Nappycino at the moment. We’re sewing pincushions – which is great, cause I really do actually need some.

I think I’m going to do the Heather Bailey pincushion  with these fabrics


Though I can’t decide right now on which ribbon or trim. And the wild flower pincushion in these fabrics

pincushion2I also made some key fobs for DS6’s school mother’s day fete at the 11th hour (no, actually, it was about 2pm – had to hand them in at 3 after school!) on Tuesday –


When will I ever learn not to leave things till the last minute….? I ended up having to unpick the wonky black and white one on one side.



  1. My Enid blog is
    Enid produced pattern books you self drafted in the 140’s-70’s. All her baby toddler stuff is drafted to fit over a nappy.

  2. Now where did you find D rings? I did the same thing for our mothers day school thing & you think I could find D rings I could buy without buy 100 of ebay!

    • I only made a small number of them Fiona (though the 4 for school turned out to be more, as I made them for my mum and SIL and a few other friends as well) so I just bought them at good old Spotlight.

  3. ah ok. Thanks.
