Blogging Day at Last

Been a while, the house is finally quiet the bathroom finished and feel as if the house is now my home again instead of a noisy building site. Sorry missed a few weeks of blogging but have not been idle, getting ready for the NCT Cheeky Monkey Tea Party being held at The Royal School on the afternoon of the 28th June, so with thinking cap on what could I make?

Fairy Notebook Covers

So cute these are sure to take pride of place in a little girl's room for all her secrets

Petal Dancer Lavender Sachets

These are a new one colour design and love them, stitched onto Fairy Frost Wisteria coloured fabric with just that hint of sparkle what could be better

Flag Pockets

For a Princess or Prince these are such fun to hang on the bed for all those little treasures that just have to be kept

Tooth Fairy Wallets

These have been around my site for some time but again just had to make some more

Sweet Children Gift Bags

Printed onto calico these pretty pictures are just right for a drawstring keepsake gift bag and will not break the bank

Lip Balm Keyring Pouches

I go through so much lip balm but constantly find myself routing through the bottom of my bag searching for that elusive tube am sure it can hide in so many crooks and crannies, thought these were ideal to attach to the side of your bag and keep your lip balm always handy.

Fun Tote Bags

These small tote bags can be used for keepsake party bags or for everyday use, some with just the printed fabric as decoration but some had to have extra embroidered pockets added. One of the monkey pocket totes is being donated to the NCT raffle as felt being for Cheeky Monkeys this would fit the brief well

Pet Passport

This was an aside and a suggestion from the owner of Wow Thank You, made for my own fur baby not that he will be going further than the Isle of Wight but just love this fabric. The inner pockets hold the passport secure

Rose or Lavender Bouquet Towels

Rose or Lavender Bouquet Soap Bags

Add a bar of handmade soap with the guest towel what could be a better gift

Fun Coin Purses

Fabric message wrist keyrings

Shh... Peapod Door Pillow

Perfect for the door of a babies room, hanging from aqua ribbon with a dummy charm

Golf Towels for a fanatic

A bit late for Father's Day but perfect for  a golfing fan

As you can see have been busy and still making and still a lot more to do, my 'To Do' list of ideas is growing not diminishing and think if continue along this vein could end up filling a small shop. Not sure about this bulk sewing but must admit I do seem to get quicker with each item.

The Ribbon Girl June Colour Challenge

...All Shades of Pink

Well I could not pass up this challenge as love 'Pink' and all my makes do tend to gravitate towards this colour, plus love The Ribbon Girl website and all the delicious goodies to be found there.

My offering a pink ballerina banner stitched on pink and in shades of pink plus had to add the Ribbon Girl ballet slippers charm to the top and due to the excellent service as always ordered on Monday and used on Tuesday
