Getting Back into Sewing

Well we are all settled into our new house and I have pulled out the sewing machines. It feels so good to be sewing again after 2 weeks of no craft :)  
I have been busy making baby clothes the last 2 days. I will have photos on my page soon, it's been raining and our lighting is not good for taking good pictures. I have made a cute boys' outfit - a nappy cover and matching singlet with electric guitars on them.
Also look out for a gorgeous mauve/white spots cross over top with matching frilly pants for a little bubby girl.
I am about to cut a new pattern to make beautiful baby/toddler dresses with applique on the front.
I have also discovered a wonderful website called Ivy Designs. They sell children's clothes, but also applique templates and patterns. I made a purchase there yesterday, and am keen to try them out - I bought mostly boy designs including a train; dinosaur; shark etc. I hope to have some creations made soon.
Another exciting thing is that I have just opened up a store on - look for Kathryn's Creations.
I hope to be more regular at updating my blog now that we are settled, so I will hopefully be back soon :)

Anyone like shoes? This is for you!

Do you like shoes? Well, here is a design just for you! I am a shoe lover, and if I could stretch our budget to be able to buy shoes every week I would. One of my cousin's turned 21 last month and knowing that she too loves shoes (must be a family thing!) I found this cross stitch chart and designed a name for a towel. She loves it and I had a lot of positive comments on it as I worked on it during the markets last month. When we are settled in our new house, I plan to make some towels with just the shoes on without the letters. If you would like me to design a towel or something else for you with this chart, please let me know - I would love to!
