Teenie, Weenie, Tiny Shoes!

Hello Little Birdie,
I am the proud owner of a new and fabulous book, "Meet Me At Mikes."
Today I had a go at my first project from the book. Tiny shoes!
For a sewer who has a lot of difficulty following patterns and instructions I found the instructions for these tiny shoes easy to follow and I am quite proud of the results.
I would be interested to know what you think of the fabric, its baby faces.
I like how it looks on the shoes, but when I opened up the pack of fabric squares that it came in I was not so sure and I thought it was weird.
I highly recommend this book and I am looking forward to making more projects from it.

Pink Size One Overalls

Hello Little Birdie,
Yesterday I finished a bright pink pair or cord overalls. They are a little rough but have come together fairly well. My mum requested these for a little girl she met last Christmas. I was worried that I would not get any projects finished this month as we are moving house and I have had to pack up all my sewing stuff. I should not have worried.
I also had a helper with this project. Funny how Miss Fluffy always places herself right where I am working. (I would not change this).
Happy sewing!

Hand Made Gift

Hello Little Birdie,
I am moving Jobs after 4 years. For one of my colleagues/friends I made the below hand made gifts as a thank-you. A quilters hold all bag, a coin purse, a yo yo badge and some fabric covered button hair ties. The bag and coin purse fabric is some I found at spotlight recently. I love the fabrics vintage look. I had a lovely lunch and afternoon tea organised for me as my going away function. My colleagues also gave me a very generous going away present of a spotlight and a lincraft voucher. I am looking forward to spending them!
