Ideas, Ideas, Ideas!

One of the things I love best about this little biz of mine is coming up with new designs to create. It's also one of the most frustrating! The amount of new ideas I have in my head is unbelieveable. Sometimes it's just a tweak on a pattern I've already made, sometimes it's a 'start from scratch' kind of project, but either way, I simply can't keep up!

I have managed to complete two new designs this week. Both fall into the 'tweak' catergory. The first is a boys jacket. I made this pattern up last winter, but I only ever made up one for Mozzie (hopefully I can actually get a few listed in my Madeit store this year!). The only real tweak was 'machine sketching' (not sure of the real name!), but it's something I've wanted to try for a while. And I have to admit I think it turned out pretty well.
The second was an Easter version of the Oblongs - something I intended to make last year, but typically ran out of time.Pretty cute, huh?


  1. I love the machine 'sketching', it's a fabulous way to individualise your clothes!
    BTW, that bunny oblong is super cute... wish I had more time and talent for sewing.

  2. That 'machine sketched' monster is beautiful... I love it! I love your oblongs, too... they are very cute!
