Up marketing with tulle flowers

Make the lovely tulle flowers.

Back them with felt and string them together.

Now sew them around the neck line, looks great now and gone from an $80 to more, well I think so.

Another use for fabric flowers  [ thanks pinterest.]    This is a top that I bought unfortunately it was too low, so fabric flowers to the rescue.   It looks really great.

Tags my effort

 Having seen and pinned so many Tag ideas, I was keen to make a few.

 I had so much fun, having sewn most of my life I have a good supply of fabric and lace.

Smocking for Grandies

This is some of my smocking, I made this wee dress for my lovely friends first Grand child.  I have always loved sewing for children.


     This romper suit was for my grandson, he looked gorgeous in it.

See the details sailor buttons and smocked boats.


   The blue is so sweet, I love to do the piping it always finishes off a garment.                                            

This is the little suit I made for his Christening, I used white Viyella and smocked in cream and pale fawn threads.   The photos are not clear he never sits still.
