A few little treats

A while ago I discovered a lovely website selling lots of gorgeous fabric called Sew La La. I admit I have spent a good while browsing all the lovely fabrics, adding them to my basket and then taking things out again! I had to, otherwise I'd have spent a fortune!

I finally decided to treat myself to something nice and went straight to Sew La La to buy some fabrics I'd spent so long drooling over.

As my order completed I felt so excited and couldn't wait to get stated on some sewing. I jotted down some notes and sketches of what I'd like to make so when my parcel arrived I could get started.

I was really impressed with the fast delivery. I received it next day and was packaged really well.

Here are a few pictures of what I received

Lovely Polkadots




More Flowers
Pretty Patchwork

I love the patchwork fabric and wanted to make a pretty makeup bag for myself. A while ago I bought a Catg Kidston brush roll, so I really wanted a make up bag that was big enough to store it in as well as my every day essentials.

I quilted the patchwork fabric, added.a zip and some polka dot lining and ended up with this

I like the ric rac trim and the button was part of a set that my sister bought me from America.

Whilst I was at my sewing machine I also had time to make a cover for my notebook. It's A5 size and will brighten up my sewing desk.


  1. Thank you so much for writing such a kind blog about my little shop, it means a lot! I love what you have done with the patchwork fabric & hope you have a lovely time making with the other prints. Kath x
