Making a little money.

I love sewing. And as much as it would be great to make money from it, I have no grand designs right now. However in the last week I have received two 'jobs' that I am more than happy to be paid for!

Job number one: a special gift for a soon-to-be mum and her little bubs. She picked the colours and I worked away making a feeding cover and 5 spew rags. I think the little set turned out nicely.

Job number two: Creating a cot quilt for a friend in reds and whites. *yikes* Don't have much red in my stash, so I'm thinking op shops and perhaps a little trip to Amitie to pick out a special feature fabric!!!

you are a cleaver little kitten - I love reading your blogs. And the inspiration from Granny was so lovely. I'm stoked that your friend has used the eucalyptus dying technique. Granny loves the bush and all the natural world around her, its great that she can pass it on to others x ps - never seen such pretty spew rags x
love brigi x

I have so many mums to be around me at the moment. Thanks for the inspiration for what I can make them. Spew rags all round!
