My Creative Space.....

Lot of crafty goodness happening in my creative space this week.

A friend from school just had a beautiful little baby girl. After drooling over these exquisite baby shoes i wanted to attempt to make some myself Joyfolie style. So i went searching for a pattern for 'Mary-Jane' style booties and found a fabulous tutorial here.

And this is what i came up with



Maybe not exactly Joyfolie standard, though i was pleased with my first attempt. I think when i make them again i will make the straps a little thinner perhaps?

They look quite cute in this Amy Bulter fabric, I hope she likes them!



So today im working on a burping cloth/bib in co-ordinating fabric to make a little gift set. Then it's off for coffee with the ladies tomorrow for a chin wag and lots of baby cuddles (HA, cluckie much?!)....

In other projects i sat up to the wee hours of the morning (the only spare time i get at the moment!) the other night cutting and ironing and then sewing up a heap of new clutches for Handmade Heaven. They have proved popular and my little space is looking a little dismal so these will be heading up to Liesa to fill my space with some more stock and a little colour...





So im working on the last little bit of hand stitching with these ones. Cluttches today, new card designs tomorrow.


Lets hope i get it all done! More creatives spaces HERE

Thanks for stopping by!
