my new Chanel Wee Billow Crossbody Bag...

Yay. I finished a new Wee Billow Bag and I know I always say that... but this one must be my favourite one ever. Like ever ever. This is the second one I added a strap to. Kind of a Wee Billow CrossBody Bag... and I love it. Hahahaha, it feels a little like a handmade version of the classic, posh Chanel bag I always wanted to own when I was a grown up. Well, I guess I have it now. Sort of. A quilted Malibu Chanel bag...   This Wee Billow Bag is made of my new fave fabric lines Malibu by Heather Ross, Posy by Annabel Wrigley and Ruby and Bee solids, which I adore, all for Windham Fabric....

Wrap them in fairy tales - Let's make a quilt together

I made these two quilts a while ago but I think I've never really shared them with you. So, here we go... This is actually the quilt I made for my son. My daughter got a pink version but I think she secretly likes this green one better. Hahahaha, I can't blame her... Let me tell you a little more about them. Every night I tuck my kids in bed, using their wrap them in fairytales quilts. And every night I tell them that their quilt will keep them safe through the night, protecting them from nightmares and sad thoughts. Because every stitch it took me making those quilts, I made while I was thinking of them. And when I have to...

Let's do this!

 Let's make a quilt together.  We are super close to be back to lockdown again. During the PM’s broadcast a couple days ago, it was mentioned that the restrictions probably won’t be lifted anymore over the next six months. And it’s affecting all of us again. I am not sure what your situation was in March but I pretty much froze for a couple weeks/ months. Couldn’t do anything really and lost my sewing mojo… BUT this time around I am determined not to let it happen again. I want to fight the lockdown blues and make something that brings me joy instead. And I really hope you will join me on this journey.   I would love to make...

a little more about the weebillowbag

Dang. I am so excited to finally be able to share my new pattern with you. The WeeBillowBag. I seriously love it and I think it's my favourite pattern so far. Not kidding when I say, that I love every one I made so far...    This quilted one, made using Malibu by Heather Ross for Windham Fabrics, is the smaller one (the pattern comes in two sizes!). Here you can see nicely how deep it is - 2.5" to be precise (the larger one is 3.5" deep).   And then I made this one!! My most recent version and also the one I love the most. It's the smaller one in size, all quilted and using the most gorgeous...
