Well hello again...thanks for stopping by.....
I would like to introduce you to the latest creation from my sewing room....
the heat bag
Last year when my niece and nephew
moved down from sunny QLD to SA
they were suffering from the cold....!!!
I decided to give them a pair of flannelette pjs each....
and I did make comment to my Mum
I should make them a wheat bag each!
The children had never owned one due
to the climate in QLD
so I played around with the idea and decided to make flannelette ones to match the PJ' s
But me being me decided that a plain old square one
was just a bit boring
and decided to make something different....
I toyed with the idea of making a ladybird one...
great for my niece but I didn't think my nephew
would be fussed with a ladybird
so I fiddled around a bit more
and came up with an owl...
good for both girls and boys
and those young at heart!
I made one up as a trial and the reaction
from my family was that I should make
some for the markets that I have been doing
'cause they are just so darn
I made 12 up and "Hootie"
debuted at the Buninyong Makers Market in May
and he sold out before lunch.....
I made 30 for Little Munchkins Market in June
because its winter here and he is so warm and cuddly...
and once again he was very popular..!
I have a stall at the Sugar & Spice Childrens Market
in a couple of weeks so my sewing room
has turned into "Hootie"ville.....
I am having so much fun making these
and they are not only popular with the kids...
but I have lots of requests for adult ones....
So I better get back to the sewing room..
as some more gorgeous flannel has just arrived
from the US and I can't wait to play with it!!!
I hope you are managing to stay warm wherever you are!
