Linkup Party Likes #16


Hello everyone, how has your week been.  I have been busy making trolley covers to add to my Made It store.  I have also been doing a lot of late spring cleaning.  I just was so over the clutter in my cupboards and the kids bedrooms oh and our study (we have a lot of magazines that we read and keep).  So look out charity bin here I come.

My little man also has turned 5 months.  He has rolled onto his tummy a couple of times and is trying to sit up by himself at the moment oh and he has been really grumpy lately do to toothing.


And on the craft side of things, I’m a bit behind on my Art of Knitting teach yourself to knit, so I have been trying to catch up each night.

So what have you all been up to lately.  I have noticed that the Christmas crafts are starting to appear along with thanks giving projects overseas.  This year I have decided to make most of my nieces and nephews Christmas and have found a few ideas through Pin Interest.

Well what have you been up to over the last week.  Lady with the Red Rocker has made this beautiful felt headband and provided a great tutorial on how its done:



Finding other peoples complete knitting projects makes me want to dive in and start on something for the kids for next winter but I don’t think I’m quite ready to do that yet but I just loved this Cardigan that McGreen Experience has just finished:



I have never been one for ruffles on shirts but lately I have come across some lovely items that you have all made, like this lovely ruffle shirt that Cobblestones & Ivy has made after finding a tutorial over at Tea Rose Home :


And who doesn’t love a homemade softie.  A Creative Princess has used an applique pattern to create these cuddly fellows:



Miss G loves wearing stockings and I thought that this DIY tights tutorial was a great idea over at Southern Lovely:



Hating Martha has a great tutorial for a baby shower gift.  Why not make your own for the next baby shower you are attending:


I’m thinking about making the girl’s some pj’s for Christmas.  I have the pattern for the pants but wasn’t to sure about the top.  I thought about doing the usual applique on a t-shirt but I think I might us this tutorial for a tubular singlet I found over at Cass Can Sew:

And a dress or two never goes astray and here is one I found by the lovely ladies over at A Couple of Craft Addicts:


Hope all these lovely ideas have given you some inspiration for this week.  Today I am trying to take my own family photo’s instead of getting a professional to do them so wish me luck.

Happy Sewing!!!!
