My cousin was expecting a baby in August and I set in my mind that it was going to be a girl, I went out and bought numerous amounts of girly fabric so that I could make her baby lots of pretty things. Well she managed to stress herself out and ended up having her baby 7 weeks early and yep, it's a boy!
So here I am stuck with all these pink fabrics, so what to do?
Thankfully a few friends had birthdays this month, and it seems extra cold this winter and my bestie Lee Lee is always whining how freezing she is so I attempted (and I use that word loosely) to make her a pair of pants with the some pink Minky fabric.
Firstly, I have never really made clothes, let alone adult sized.
Secondly, Minky is super messy - was covered in fluff, the room was covered in fluff, pink fluff was everywhere!
The end result - Happy Birthday Lee Lee Minky lounge pants was received with a huge smile (and finally fluff free)

Years ago I joined an online diet club to obviously lose weight (which I did) but also in the process I gain some great online friends. I feel really connected to these people even though I have never met them and likely never will as they are skattered all over Australia.
This clutch was made for a great online friend who I feel is my biggest fan, always giving a big thumbs up on FB and positive comments, so this is for you "Nett".
I wanted to make a little larger clutch so I decided to use my Buttercup pattern and omit the handle - I'm very happy with the result.
