Fabric Stash Clearout Sale!!!!!!

I have been cleaning out my sewing room and going through all my material and for some reason I have heaps of 'girly' fabric and I have 2 boys so will probley not use it.  I am going to use the money to do my first fabric order from on the net so probley etsy or similar.  Now I am not to good with my fabrics so will do my best to describe them some I know for sure but others not too sure about!!!



The first one is white cotton with pink embroidered flowers all over (see close up pic) I actually brought this for the EB kids clothing swap but changed my mind to the pink cord!!!!!!$8.00 SOLD

The second is an animal print flannelette it measures 111cmx138cm.  It would make a great winter girls dress for over leggings or even a nice soft jacket, it's doesn't look like PJ type flannelette if that makes sense but you could make PJ's out of it too.....$5.00

And the third is a pink cord with embroidered butterflys on it measuring 105cmx71cm and then another piece (which is still attached to it measuring 48cmx82cm.  This is the fabric I used for the kids clothing swap!!!!  You would get a nice skirt out of this or even  a small pinnafore dress.....There is just a small flaw in the end of this material see pic.......$4.00   SOLD


The first one in this picture is I think a cotton although to me it feels thicker than cotton so not sure....It is off  white colour with strawberries on it, it has printed on the edge 'Caprice Australia Original' (don't know what it means!)  it measures 115cmx152cm I think it would make a lovely dress or skirt!!!! $5.00 SOLD

The next is a cotton brown with tiny pink flowers and measures 87cmx152cm....$2.00

The third is a pink don't know what sort of fabric it is but it is quite thick I would say it would make nice pair of overalls for a girl or even a pinafore dress or some pants?????? It measures 48cmx148cm......$2.00 SOLD


This is a blue with sunflowers on it and it is 65% polyester 35% cotton and measures 114cmx200cm and there is 3 of them...$8.00


Yellow Flannelette with Cockatoos 104cmx87.....$2.00

Mint stripe with white and bears flanelette 69cmx83cm.........$1.00

Blue with pink pigs flannelette 85cmx96cm........$1.00

Bear Flannelette 88cmx84cm and another piece still attached 68cmx93cm.......$2.00

All these are quite small pieces but you could probley get a top out of them and then have plain bottoms for PJ's?????????

I will probley use pre paid satchels as I find them the cheapest to use.........

My boys!!!!


Thought I would just add an updated photo of my little boy......He has gotten cubby now looks nothing like the skin and bones little premmie now....He is nearly 11 weeks old...that has flowen by.......


And here are the two brothers together... AJ (17 months) loves to hold Dominic......

Little Explorer Overalls!!!!


These are the little explorer overalls that I have been dying to try and I made a size 2 as Ds1 is only in size 1 so I thought I would make them bigger so he can wear them next summer as it is too cold here now.  But they are too small....The top half fits but the bottom is to tight over his disposable nappy, if he wasn't in nappies it would be ok, but what 17 month old if fully out of nappies????  The pattern must be a pretty small make....Oh well lucky I have two boys so DS2 can wear them later on!!!!!!!

Pink Cord Dress!!


I made this dress for my niece for her birhtday, the top underneath I brought though and the bag is the Margaret bag that I had made for my SIL but I stuffed up when printing out the pattern and made it too small so I put it with this dress and my niece loved it so it went to a good home afterall........

The material is just a pink cord with embroidered flowers and butterflies on it and was left over from the clothing swap........
