I don’t get a lot of time to create and what I do get time for spends a lot of time as a WIP before completion, even the quick and easy ones. While I would LOVE more time to let my creative juices flow I’m also fine with just a little here and there as I know my time is not wasted on my three greatest creations of all; Harrison James, Amelia Ruby and Sophie Olivia. But what I thought I might do is start sharing some of my past creations, I love looking back at the things I have made. Some make me cringe some I’m surprised by my own ideas and abilities but most I still love and feel a sense of pride when looking back. I thought I’d start with one of my favourites, this little guy, Tripp, who I made for my nephew’s 1st birthday before I had children of my own. He’s a @mellyandme pattern and I used to add little swing tags with an introduction and my pretend label “Finkles : .” Then I’d appliqué a tshirt to match and complete the gift with a couple of picture books with turtles featured #lookingforwardlookingback#wasithatclever#creativeme#mellyandme#sewing#makersgonnamake#softies#fabric#beforekids#allthetimeintheworld#turtle#tortoise#nephewgift#handmade#handmadeinaustralia#madeinthepilbara#keepsake#sewingforboys

Last week my youngest daughter got the flu, and missed the annual Daddy Daughter Dance. So her big sister made her a unicorn to help her feel better. Now I have the flu, and I'm secretly hoping she'll make me a dragon from the same book!
Pattern is by @mellyandme from the adorable book, Sew Fantasy Toys.
