sunday stash #5

I keenly followwed a recent sew-along run by Amy at Badskirt (well back in July!). I wasn't brave enough to join in but I think the Oliver&S ice cream dresses that everyone made were so cute.  I might be too late as the pattern is getting difficult to find but it's going on the list!  Whilst over at Badskirt, I was seduced into buying some fabric when she was having a pre-Japan trip sale.  Bargain!  (except the postage from Australia!)
still rubbish at taking pictures!
So this little stash includes some Girl Friday graph paper and writing lines by cosmo crisket, sublime by riley blake and some really cool neo geo tiles.  I can see some of these making up an excellent ice cream social dress.  That's my fabric buying done for the month (I hope....but my will is so weak!)

I've been obsessed with bag making and have russled up a couple this week.

For Pleat's Sake bag using echino fabric
My original idea for this one was as a Christmas pressie but the lure of the lovely echino fabric was too great and I had to "test drive" it yesterday.  I'm definitely making this again - pattern by U-handbag - so you've been warned.

I also made this one (apologies again for the photo):
daisy jane fabric and keyka lou small satchel pattern
I made the straps longer but maybe a bit too long but I quite like it.  I've got loads of the fabric left and as it's heavy ish and canvassy, it's got more bags written all over it.

Sewing is on hold at the moment as we're getting our loft re-insulated this week and its contents are currently filling my sewing room.  Business as usual from Wednesday I hope :)


  1. M,
    mega mega impressed - your work is gorgeous and choice of fabrics!

  2. Must try to get Laughing Boy to model the bags too :)
