Miss Polly dress

Recently I made a few things for baby L. Miss R kept asking, "Who is this for?" and I kept on telling her they were for her baby sister. Then one day I said the next thing I made would be for her. Her eyes lit up!

While she was sleeping, I made the Miss Polly dress for my sweet Miss R.


Miss Polly is the latest pattern released by my sewing and blogging friend Suz, a talented lady behind Sewpony Vintage patterns. Suz also blogs at Sewpony.

Bravo Puperita!

Do you love surprises? I love surprises!

About three months ago Emi, Kate and I started working on a little project. We were like three school girls whispering and giggling in the corner, planning something super exciting.

Surprise, Annalisa! 


What? You don't know who Annalisa is? She is a heart and soul of Puperita patterns.

Inspired by Mie: colour blocked Lila tunic and yellow Drew leggings

Around three years ago I started this blog hoping to get to know sewing enthusiasts around the globe. During this time I have been taught and inspired, challenged and stretched, comforted and reassured by the most amazing people within the sewing community. Today a group of us would like to take an opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation to one exceptionally talented seamstress.

Mie is a sewing superstar behind Sewing Like Mad. She is a formally trained seamstress with many years of experience. Mie is one of the most generous, encouraging and down to earth people I was lucky to meet.

Mie, I feel a little awkward putting my thoughts in words, so I made a couple of quick projects that showcase what I learnt from you, a Lila tunic* by Compagnie M and Lily & Woody and Drew leggings by Sadi and Sam.

MaaiDesign blog tour: Plantain tee, Lila jumpsuit and bribing babies

Matching outfits is my husband's worst nightmare. Look what I did to him!


Yes, I made a Plantain tee for myself and a Lila jumpsuit * for baby L form the same fabric! It is beautiful Firework Blue organic cotton jersey by Froy & Dind. Froy & Dind fabric is known to my European sewing friends. The good news is that now it is also available in Australia. Maaike, a lovely Belgian lady who, just like me, now calls Australia home, has a wide range of high quality European fabric in her online store MaaiDesign. Maaike is currently hosting a blog tour, and today is my turn to Show and Tell **.

The Eleena Dress

It is now officially Autumn in the Southern hemisphere. It doesn't feel like it at the moment as temperatures reach nearly 40 degrees. A few weeks ago R started school and I decided to stop sewing summer outfits, however I still wanted to sew the Eleena dress, the latest pattern from Olga of Coffee + Thread. I wanted to make something that could be worn now while it is still hot as well as during cooler months. I decided to sew a sleeveless dress. R can pair it up with a cardigan or wear a long sleeve tee underneath during cooler months.

World Book Day - Satya Romper for Thumbelina

There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all.
-Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

I have very fond memories of my mum reading to my brother and I when we were little. Her gentle voice and my vivid imagination took me on exciting adventures. There were brave knights and beautiful princesses, fire breathing dragons, wicked witches and clever children, hilarious animals, scary forest creatures, vast oceans and high mountains. Each new book provided an opportunity to explore a new exciting world.
