Can you guess what it is yet?!
Obviously a house/tunnel for a lizard to run through!
What fun requests people want :-)

I decided to give the little horse pattern a go. I have completed the horse, and added a little horn to make it a unicorn.

So, what makes it so special?? Nothing...it is just a nice lined, zippered pencil case... except you can colour it in!

After much procrastination I finally sewed a bit of the Rapunzel dress. It is not quite finished...there is still ribbon to add to the front and the back needs finishing and Velcro needs to be added (and the skirt!)
I am happy with it so far, I used loads of pins...I NEVER pin! And that has stopped me having to swear because the material is slipping!
The tutorial I am following uses a serger (which I don't own) and my inside seams are pretty messy. I think, once I have made it all, I will use bias binding and bind all the seams. This will look neater and should stop my big Little girl from getting irritated.
I am working this weekend, but I may get some sewing done this evening. I wanna get this finished!

I promised myself some wrist warmers for a while (I did make some as presents for Christmas...and I did end up with a bodged pair) I used this tutorial.
The only thing I would recommend is to make the pattern a bit wider than the pattern piece. I have small hands and they are too tight even for me. As you can see, I rectified this by adding an extra piece of fleece!
One day I may learn to take wonderful pictures in natural light with plain backgrounds (anyone want to give me photography lessons?), but, until then, you will have to put up with the rubbish shots!

I saw someone's child wearing a peasant dress and knew that there we plenty of tutorials about for it so I decided I would give it a go. I used this tutorial which is super easy to follow.
