I have heaps and heaps of pictures to show everyone so I won't bore you with too many words this post..... I promise!!! First up are some pics of the goodies that I picked up at the Vinnie's I visited in Cootamundra last Friday while I was at Mums. The embroidered stuff in the top pic cost 10cents each and the zippers and buttons cost $1.50. I just love Vinnie's, such great bargains to be found every time. Here's some of the fabric that I scored at Spotlight in Wagga Wagga.....It's not a very good pic, I know.... Spotlight is getting in some really fantastic Japanese prints at the moment which makes it such a pleasure to shop there even though it's a pig sty at the best of times. This is a pic of the crochet monkey that I'm making for one of my nephews for Xmas.....I only have 1 leg, 2 shoes, a mouth, an applique on his shirt and a seam in his shorts and his all done. I've got 5 nephews and have decided to make them all a toy similar to this one, each individual in some way or another to suit each of the boys personalities, with an applique of their initial on the them. I'll team it up with a cute little homemade bag filled with books. I think that they'll be pretty happy little boys, don't you?? They are all under 3 so teddies are still such a big part of their lives...LOL!!!!
My next project is some fabric softies..... I'll be trying to make the pattern up so wish me luck!!! I'll keep you posted on my progress. :)
