Pink, Green and Orange

I love making piles of fabrics. I often spy a fabric on the shelf I hadn't thought too much about before and suddenly I need to find a more than will go with it.
Experimenting with circles and trying to find a way I like sewing them. These are two fabrics I picked up at Textile Traders this week thanks to Janelle who let me know there was some Amy Butler in.
I am doing my first market next month. Scary, scary. Made on the Left in Bunbury. Now I am off to turn some of the piles into toys and bags.

I am sure you will sell lots of toys and such as you make such wonderful things. I think it is normal to have nerves though.

Wishing you great success. Who could resist your little critters? And your bags are always fantastic. I love making piles of pretty fabrics too...it's relaxing, especially when a sewing project is going wrong.

Thanks for posting about your Sew Hip mag purchase - I have been looking for it for months and couldn't get it anywhere even in Melbourne on holidays and I didn't want to pay for whole subscription - so I tried our local Karratha newsagent again and they had it!!! Double WOW for up here in the desert Thank you - Happy sewing your toys are very cute x
