What a beautiful balletninni  Grin

Todays project isn't pretty but it is practical. I made two double draught excluders, one for the kitchen door/back door and one for the living room/front door. We have terribly draughty outer doors which I can't do anything about but I CAN make sure the draughts don't encroach on our living space, so I did  Smiley
They're stuffed with the inners from a couple of old pillows.

I added an extra 1.5" to the length of the bodice on this one so the waistline is closer to my natural waist. I also made the skirt a little longer. I feel like it needs a fancy hat and a wedding invitation  Grin it is a lovely soft jersey fabric and it feels great on.

I bought the purple dress and copied it to make the green version  Grin I had to make the green one as I'd bought green shoes and had nothing to wear with them  Cheesy
My Beloved says I ought to make more in every colour I can get hold of AND he will buy me matching shoes! I think it's the shock of seeing my legs that did that to him *lol*

I'm getting off to a very slow start, I have the winter blues and can't get to grips with anything much but here is a big grocery bag I made today from a home dec remnant. Its approx 20" x 20" with a 4" gusset. I'm giving it to my SiL as I have some stuff to send her anyway and it may as well travel in a nice new bag  Grin

Quaggy I love your dresses! The bead trim on the blue one is groovy and it is wonderful that you have saved them all these years.

My first project of the year - a rattan heart & beads dec'. It measures approx 10" from the top of the heart to the last bead. I snapped up some decs in the post Xmas sale and I will be "de-countrifying" by getting rid of the gingham ribbon/twine etc and adding bits and pieces from my bead box

My earliest crafting memory - an introduction to dressmaking  Smiley
 During the early 70s my Mums sister, Auntie Maggie lived with us. I can't be 100% on my age at the time but I would have been around 4 or 5 as she lived with us prior to the birth of my younger sister but moved on before we moved house after the birth of brother #1. I remember being allowed to help pin the pattern tissue to the fabric for a dress she was making herself. The sofa and chairs were pushed back against the walls of the living room to make room on the carpet for laying out the fabric. It was a pale blue floral print, I can still see it in my minds eye even though I can never remember seeing Auntie Maggie wear the finished dress. My Mum has always been one to embrace new gadgets and technology and so the actual cutting of the fabric was done with electric scissors something like these - exciting!

Hmm exciting until Auntie Maggie was finished cutting and asked me to unplug them which I did without switching them off ( I was a kid, I didn't know!) I yanked the plug and apparently touched the prongs - OUCH seems to be an understatement,I can remember tingling all along my arm & I couldn't let go of them!
Needless to say I've got a buzz from crafting ever since  Grin

I made some coin purses and gave them away as RAKs, I posted them in the de-stash thread. At the same time I made this one for my SiL using up the off-cuts from some quilt blocks. She loved it Smiley

The ornament mugrugs look great!

This isn't quilted but it's a patchwork project from quilt block scraps  Smiley Using the off cuts from my heart blocks I patched together a little coin purse for my SiL.
