I love this dress. It was fun to make. The tutorial is here http://houseonhillroad.typepad.com/photos/sunny_day/ So well explained - probably the best tutorial I have followed yet! The fabric was from Spotlight and I love it. Can see myself making more of these for my nieces!

I made this Melly and Me Pussycat bag for my niece Phoebe. She turns 3 next week and we are going to fill it with little bits and pieces (plus she is getting a barbie and barbie car). At first I hated it, but it is growing on me now that it is finished! I think it would be much easier 2nd time around. This was also for the Newbie Sewers bag challenge on Essential Baby. So there you go, I have made a bag!

I am so in love with this top! Fairly easy to make although an error in the pattern had me scratching my head but I couldn't be happier with how it turned out! Only just fits though so Sophie will be wearing it constantly over long sleeve tops and then I will need to make a larger size for summer. I'm thinking of making the dress version as a Christmas dress for all those parties/break-ups etc we tend to have in December. And best of all Sophie said "Mummy, I love it!". Woo hoo - its a winner!
