The winners and some Christmas sewing

And the winner of the Colette Pattern is;

and Simplicity 6350 is;



So while Spolight has their 50% off christmas fabric I couldn't resist and got some fabric for the kids.
I made my son a pair of boxer shorts out of my trusty pattern Simplicity 9958 and some 1950's repro cotton fabric

and my daughter a simple circle skirt. This fabric came in panels to make a tree skirt (?), but was perfect to make a skirt. I used 2 panels to make a full circle and 3" elastic for the waistband.

Plus i thought this fabric was just gorgeous so made the daughter a simple pillowcase


  1. fab!! I especially like the pillowcase fabric, goes really nicely with the beautiful quilt you made. Your kids must be loving your sewing :D I wish we had better fabric stores here in the U.K, we don't have big stores like Spotlight or Joannes.

  2. Oh thankyou, Suzy, for the first ever win in Bloggerland!!! I certainly am looking forward to trying out the dress.
    Your Spotlight must be wayyyyy better than the one I pop into. The 50% sale was whittled down to about 5 sad bolts of Xmas fabric in very unattractive prints.
    My son loves the boxer's I whip him up - even at 15!!! So you will be on a permanent winner with those.

  3. Oh, I am so excited!

    I love the christmas clothes you have made. My kids have one store bought shirt each at the moment, I am so slack at the moment.

  4. Hey Marie - i sent you an email, please let me know if you didn't get it!
