Sunglasses Case

Project: Embroidered Sunglasses Cases
Another couple of these. I asked the kids to draw Nanny and Pa and embroidered their pictures onto one side of the case. Embroidered pictures are very cool.

Notebook & Pens

Project: A handmade present suitable for men and women, and for those people who have everything!
After I made these for the kids, I had an idea to do something similar for grownups. These hold an A5 notebook and have pockets for 4 pens.

All in One Pencil Case

Project: A Pencil case that has everything a kidlet needs to keep them entertained
Inspired by: On The Go Satchel from Lovely Little Sweetpeas and Pencil Roll Tutorial from You Go Girl
I loved this idea - to take to places when kids need something to do. These have a pocket to hold an A5 notebook, raised pockets for 10 textas and a pair of scissors, and elastic that holds a glue stick.

Transport T.Shirts

Project: Add something to plain T.Shirts
Because everything in our house is about machines and transport, it made sense (and it made my kids very happy) to have a digger and dump truck on their tops. The train is for my nephew. They designs are in felt and are machine sewed on.

Dragon Handbag

Pattern: Hybrid of the Make Up Purse and Laptop Bag Pattern from Nicole Mallalieu
After getting a wishlist from my friend, I combined bits from both patterns to make this bag. The fabric is a beautiful silk from China which was leftover from a dress she had made while on holidays. Now she has a handbag to match.
