In other news……Melbourne’s “Summer” is proving to be ridiculously ridiculous!  I have been suffering terribly with hay fever and driving myself and everyone else crazy with my sneezing, sniffing, rubbing of eyes and itching of throat and ears.  I’ve drugged myself up to my eyeballs, and am only starting to get a little relief today.  Although I still sound like a man……
I’ve sniffed my way through sewing these beauties…..
I finished this #ghastlies pouch yestrrday! Love it!
I made this Ghastlies Wide Opened pouch from Noodlehead’s tutorial – but didn’t put interfacing in and made it a bit bigger to allow for the print.  This is a Christmas gift for someone special….
Noodlehead Zippered Pouches - without the flat bottom!
Obviously I love making pouches, because yesterday I decided I needed to make another five!  But I’m lazy, and the making of the flat bottom does my head in, so they’re a regular rectangular pouch.  Having said that – the wide open zipper makes them that little bit more special!  I’ve already sold three of them, the other two are still up for grabs on my FB page.
And the third custom order for the day!
I whipped up this gorgeous set as an order for the lovely Fiona – Just need to sew on buttons and trim!
And another!
These cute cuffed shorts for my Chloe!
Custom order finished!
And another order for Fiona.  This was the last big piece of Little Red in the blue colour way…..sad times.

When I told Fiona I was cutting out her orders on Tuesday, she said I was quick……  But I’ll share a bit of a secret with you – when I have orders for something, I never just make the orders.  I will cut out a few extra, so instead of making one item, I’ll make a few.  It’s great time management!

Anyway, that’s it for today.  I’m now off to drop Chloe at her last prep transition for the year.  Then next year, she will be a fully fledged prep school girl!

I’m linking up with T.G.I.F.F. over at Quokka Quilts – You can too!
