{Pattern Release} Tilly

Yay. Tilly is finially finished.  You can purchase it, and others, from my craftsy shop
I just ADORE my tester photos, I had a great group of testers this time round (each time I have actually) I just LOVE seeing their take on my patterns, and the fabrics they choose make them all individual. 
Cute little rainbow bum

The pattern comes with 3 sleeve lengths ~ singlet, short and long.

Dont you just love this sneaky backwards glance! 

So bright and bubbly

This I think is my ALL TIME FAVOURITE ~ the colours are just amazing and even though I don’t really “do” skulls, they really work here.

It works really well as a Halloween outfit. 

This one almost looks GLOW IN THE DARK!

Isn’t this little doll sweet ~ showing off the short sleeved version.

Adding embellishments like a flower or bow at the waist adds a cute little POP!

Well…What are you waiting for? Go buy it, you know you want to. and until tomorrow night (29th September 2013 8:30pm) its only $8USD instead of $10USD

New patterns released and other stuff

Well its been a while since I last posted.  quite a lot has happened in that time.
~ My oldest child turned 5 and started school.
~ We have had a winter of sickness – pneumonia, conjunctivitis, broken arm, colds by the thousands, tonsilitus x3 and that is just to name a few.  It has been very tiring and I am VERY MUCH looking forward to the warmer weather. Bring on summer!!!
~ A few more patterns have been released in my pattern shop
~ A new nephew and another niece or nephew due in November.
Well I have really got the pattern designing bug now, and I now have a total of 9 patterns in my etsy shop.   I have a WONDERFUL group of ladies who test for me and they do an absolutely AWESOME job, and some of the photos are just to die for.  I really wouldn’t be able to do this without them.

I have a new pattern in testing RIGHT NOW and boy is it a cutie.
I’ve called it Tilly.
and here is a sneak peak from one of my testers
Isn’t it Gorgeous.  it will be in sizes 6m up to 5yrs and will be available soon…Its also going to have the option of sleeves.
So that is the good news.
The bad new, well not bad, just tiring.
Brylie turned 5 on the 9th of September and was so looking forward to school.  She however missed her first day of school due to conjunctivitis and then missed her second day due to a vomiting bug.  So that was Thursday and Friday at school, YAY. the next week she got Monday, Tuesday and wendesday but then on Wednesday night she broke her arm which resulted in a VERY long night at hospital, surgery, 4 iceblocks and a sleep over with daddy in the children’s ward.
NEedless to say she hasn’t been back to school since then, and we are looking forward to wendesday this week. TOMORROW when she can go back, hah just in time for the holidays which start next week!!!!
Here are a few photos from her birthday party.
She originally wanted a pink heart cake, and 2 days before her party decided she wanted a mermaid cake, I thought I did pretty well without much warning.

I made her dress using the Fairytale Pattern Designs Anabell Dress, its a beautiful dress with fake shirring in the back and a cute little ruffle along the top of the bodice.  I love the full skirt, which is PERFECT for twirling.

Me and my girls, Elijah was running around outside so missed out on this photo.

We went out for McDonalds as a special treat on her birthday.

{Pattern release} Peekaboopocket Pants!!! YAY

Yay, I can finally announce the release of my very first clothing pattern.
It can be purchased from my etsy shop or Craftsy

Go on, you know you want to.  Isn’t this little dude just the cutest, he belongs to one of my awesome testers.  I just love how she has added knee patches and even a pocket on the back (which you can’t see)

By Luong Pham from Lil Bubs Couture 
This photo is one of my FAVs, the colours just POP and he’s such a spunky little chap. 

Now here’s a cute little pink rocker!!

AND ~ in some very exciting news, I’m about to release my VERY FIRST CLOTHING PATTERN!! I am so super excited and I can hardly realise that it has all come together so well.
I had to teach myself to use Adobe Illustrator, which wasn’t actually that hard once I knew the gist of what I was doing. though there are a few things that I still haven’t worked out.
It is out in testing at the moment, but I promise it will be out within the next two weeks, 1 week at the least, and it will be available for purchase in my etsy store.
I do really hope that you will purchase this cute little peekaboopocket pant pattern, the pants are just the cutest.

{Pattern Release} Structured dolls carrier PDF pattern

yay, I am pleased to announce that my soft structured dolls carrier is finally available for purchase on etsy and craftsy

I want to take this opportunity to thank the people who have helped me through the process of getting this ready for sale.  
Stacey, Vicki, Carmen, Marimba, Emma, Shelley, Lizzie for all your testing, proof reading and pattern pdfing.  I wouldn’t have been able to do it with out you.
I’m really looking forward to seeing the cute little carriers that others make using my pattern. 

Here’s one that one of my testers, Marimba from Miss Direct made.
I love the choice of fabrics and her daughter got all upset when she was told that she need to take some more photos to sent to me. No its mine. :0)
And I love the colours of the carrier made by Vicki from Petitbebe
Here are some gorgeous pictures of my daughter modelling the finally perfected design.  She specially chose the fabric, its beautiful quality cotton with bows with SPARKLES.
