With the remainder of the paw print fabric, I decided to make a throw rug.

I just hemmed the edge of the fabric and voila! I had a throw rug for the end of my bed which Riley can sleep on

He seemed pretty happy with the results!!!

I gave myself a break from uni work to quickly make the pillow to go into my kitty’s basket.
My sister picked the basket up second hand and it didn’t have anything to sleep on. My kitty Riley seems to love plush fabrics so I couldn’t resist purchasing this cute paw print fabric to make a pillow for him!! :)

Brought this cute paw print fabric a few weeks ago with the intentions of making my kitty a pillow to go in his basket.

It is really soft plush fabric and my cat seems to like it so far….now time to make the pillow :)

Had a fun day today with my friend Jasmin starting to sew together all the pieces for her daughters baby quilt.
At the baby shower, the guests decorated a piece of fabric and finally now we are starting to put it together!!!
Can’t wait to see it when it’s finished :)

I am currently finishing my Certificate 3 in Clothing Production. As one of the assessments I have to make a jacket.

After much searching around for a pattern I like, I found this Burda Jacket Pattern. I have chosen to make Jacket A.

Now need to find some fabric I like!!

A friend lent me the first book to read because I couldn’t wait for the final movie to come out. I got soo hooked on the book I ended up buying the series and have now read them all (yep definitely a slight procrastination from my uni work).
They are great books!! I was so immersed in them the whole way through, now keen for the final movie to come out! :)

Stunning Dress!!

insouciantly:

Librarian Apron Dress

I was planning this dress out nearly a year ago (for this post). I never actually got around to finishing it until we got crazy snowed in this week. 

The pattern is the Retro Butterick 4790 dress. It has an interesting structure, its all one piece that goes over your head and connects in the back and the front. I’ve been meaning to try it out for awhile, just for that uniqueness.

I found the sizing a little odd, which is not unusual for retro patterns. Luckily, it has a very casual fit, so it works out. The waist was very tiny and the bodice was a little large. I used ties in the front instead of buttons, which also made the fit easier. It has that great classic ’50s silhouette, and the full skirt swings around your knees. I can just imagine a crazy librarian wandering around and climbing up ladders and dusting shelves in this dress. It makes me happy.

The fabric is Spoonflower’s organic cotton sateen. The quotes fabric is by me, you can see it here. I used quotes from many of my favorite books and authors: Neil Gaiman, Dorothy Sayers, Lois McMaster Bujold, Jasper Fforde, JRR Tolkein. The book spines fabric is a lovely design bypeacoquettedesigns.

Love these cushions!!

DIY Google Map Satellite Photo Pillow Tutorial from Spoonflower here. Very easy tutorial where you can use Picassa and other free photo editing software. *I cannot afford $27 per yard for Spoonflower’s linen-cotton canvas (their basic cotton is $17.50 per yard), but I can see making a low end version of this using tee shirt ink jet iron on transfers (I can’t remember what brand I used but it held up after dozens of times in the washing machine and dryer - no cracking or fading).
