I don't know why it matters to me, but it does, so thanks every one of you for following me.
Today my post will be rather un-interesting owing to the total breakup of one rather important SD card. See without it I cant take pictures, I may have a super swanky expensive camera sitting on the sideboard (which I have no clue how to use other than point and press the button, which is clearly evident in my photos!) but with an SD that has a big crack down the middle its no use to me!
I will share a few old photos and tease you will projects to come!
I had done my Bright Star FMQ for Cindy's Free Motion Friday last week when the camera was still working, yay, but no, I did not take pictures at the time so I cant share! Doh!
I got a super lightening fast parcel from U-Handbag yesterday. I must big them up massively! Ordered on mid-morning Wednesday, arrived Thursday morning and made purses by Thursday evening, phew! I will defiantly be ordering again. I am a little against the clock at the moment with my first Christmas Market just over a week away so Its full steam ahead here at Patch HQ to make stock. Hopefully I can share some pictures soon as I'm really proud of my first frame purses :)
Last weekend I had a little break from stock-making, which can get rather dull, and did some pattern testing for Cecilia over at So Tei-Tei, if you haven't been over there go and check out her blog, she has some really cute patterns! I tested the Ben and Mia pants for her on my two girls
I made a cute red velour pair for Jools all ready for Christmas parties. She may be a girl but she certainly needs something practical, girly party dresses don't cut the mustard and these pants are perfect. They are a lovely wide fit, I love the piping detail on the pockets and the buttons on the belt loops
The pattern was so easy to put together and follow, I had these done in a couple of hours. The other great bit is they are really economical with fabric.
Well that is unless you let your 6 year old choose her own fabric. I have a feeling I may have made a pair of trousers that will never be worn! I did question her when she picked it out, but she was insistent that was what she wanted. So, I made them up and presented them to her and I got 'oh' in return! I don't think she likes the fabric after all. In her own words 'they look like I'm going to a 60's revial'!!!
Still, it proved that the pattern works just as well for a lightweight fabric. I can totally see this made up in a ditsy cotton floral for the summer with a vest top. And I did manage to get one picture of her reluctantly modelling them!
Why not pop over to Lily Bird Studio and see what other patterns Cecilia has, there is even a giveaway going on at the moment!
Don't forget there is still time to vote in the Scrap Bag Challenge for your favorites!
