Recent makes

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all keeping well. So my Instagram account is fully functional now and Matt is helping with the Facebook account (I cant seem to remember my password for instagram to link the accounts together🤦🏽‍♀️). So here are some makes I have recently completed.

My sister in law challenged me to make a peg bag. First attempt is pretty awesome!
I love this idea I found on Pinterest. I used my new Cricut Joy for this project.
Super heroes are not just for boys.
A teeny tiny bauble for Darcey’s teacher, who is having her first baby this year.
And a bike bag for Marnie. Personal use only.

I definitely feel more confident on the sewing machine now, but those bigger makes will have to wait. I’m really enjoying doing the bows, but still working on how I’m going to clip boys bow ties. A few ideas I’ve had haven’t quite worked yet.

In other news. Darcey is really enjoying her lockdown school and her report this year has, once again been amazing all round. Exceeding in reading and writing, expected in maths, but I’m sure since she has been home schooling, we have changed that to exceeding too! We found out she is going to be a Jaguar in Year 2. Not sure if the whole school is going with the big cat theme this year or just her class, but I like it!

I did have a go at doing a video tutorial for making glitter baubles, it didn’t go down too well. Note to self: don’t do videos with two children in ear shot. It doesn’t work. Back to the drawing board on that one. 🤦🏽‍♀️

It’s starting now!

Hi everyone. Starting week seven of lockdown and I’m still feeling positive about the situation. Bear&Moo is beginning to blossom and it’s looking good. A few tweaks and I’ll be ready! I’ve started small with hair bows for the girls. The picture advertises Disney and Peppa pig brands, but I will not be selling these. They are for personal use only because of licensing laws. I’m not dealing with the chance of being sued.

Peppa Pig bow for Moo.
Toy story bow for Bear.

The girls love them and for my first project on the sewing machine I recently bought, I think they’re adorable! I have purchased other styles of fabric from Rosie’s craft shop. First time ordering from them, but they do a fantastic range of fabrics for crafters. So I will definitely go back and buy more!

I’ve also started making (shhhhh) Christmas tree baubles… what else is there to do with all the free time I have now?!

Using Cricut own brand permanent vinyl these look so good!

I’m thinking of doing videos on how to make these, but is it something needed? I mean, there are already a lot of videos on how to make them. Will anyone watch mine? Only one way to find out, I guess!
