Birthday makes....

October and November are already looking like being busy for parties and today was just the start.

Rachel had a birthday meal to go to and I made this personalised reversible half apron for one of her friends. 

He enjoys cooking so it seemed the idea gift and although this looks a bit like an a-line skirt it does in fact fit straight when it is on!

Initially I was just going to line it in the red but then came up with the idea of adding the big "C" to give two ways of wearing it. I hope he likes it!!

Tomas was also at a party today, this one was a joint swimming party for two of his school friends. When I asked their mums what sort of things the girls liked it was pink, fairies, princess and glitter. 
I had the perfect fabric in mind this Michael Miller glitter fairy in pink, I teamed it with some hot pink fabric to make these two personalised cushions.

 I been perfecting my appliqué stitching

and this font was nice and simple to sew around.

I was really pleased with how these turned out.

It's boys parties next so I have football and ninja turtles in mind!!!


  1. Hello Tracy
    Do you need to perfect your applique stitching even more? It looks perfect to me and both the apron and the cushions are fantastic. I do like the Big C on the apron! The girls will surely be over the moon with those two cushions!
    keep well

  2. Hi Amanda I have been mainly using straight stitch in my appliqué so I thought I would bite the bullet and use zig-zag and it wasn't as bad as I thought although I'm not quite sure how it would work on more fancy letters!


I would love to hear your thoughts and comments on my blog and I will try to answer as many as I can. thanks Tracy
