A Few of my Favourite Things...

Seasons greetings!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, and are looking forward to a wonderful 2013...

Time for a post that contains a few of my favourite things...

My daughter...sewing...designing fabric...swirls...the colour blue...and my brand new clothing labels!

This little top happens to cover off EVERYTHING listed above in one go!

It's the Fair and Square dress/top from Tie Dye Diva - made top length, using my Fancy Swirls fabric design in light blue - with a little bit of the reverse print for the flower:

I have to say - this is definitely my absolute favourite item I've made so far.  I love love the way it looks on my cheeky little girl.

Here are some of the details:

The bodice front...

The fabric - printed in poplin...
The bodice back...
The lovely matching seam! :) ...

The fabric flower, in the reverse print...

I was super excited to be able to attach on of my new woven labels to the top.  I ordered them not long before Christmas - and didn't think I would see them till the New Year. I was worried the little swirls I designed would not show through, but they did!  Luckily, they arrived mid-Christmas the last few items I made I was able to include my own proper woven labels on.

I made some matching hairclips - using the GG Designs swirl clip cover pattern...

I've made this top/dress four times in the last month now...and I still love it!

Snowy Dreams Collection

Another sneek peak...the second of my two new fabric collections, which will be available in January on

I really like the soft colours in this one.

You can see each design individually here.

Feels a bit strange designing snowflakes in our December summer heat - but it's not summer everywhere is it! :)

Follow me on Facebook if you are interested in an update on when this collection, or the Sweetie Pie collection, are released.

Seasons Greetings to you all!

Soft candy colours mixed with pops of brightness.  Very girly!  Very swirly!
