Just a quick update before I head out for the day to sew at a friends place. You know, away from the distractions of housework and phonecalls.
I have new upcycled cardigans for girls that will be available at the Mulgrave Makers market this coming sunday the 27th.

They will be in various sizes and a big range of colours. Im frantically sewing these for winter but they are so much fun to make. I had to do an op-shop trip yesterday afternoon to get more knits and laces as I had already run out!!!!
But I had a huge stash (so I thought)????

This is one of the boys ones I made that sold on the weekend. Im still buzzing from the day at the festival albeit a bit more slowly. Does anyone else find it hard to come down from a market 'high'?

girls size 4 (will be available in the shop)

girls size 5 (will be also in the shop when I get a chance)

This boys one also sold and there were others that I didnt get the chance to photograph, darn it.

Hope your week is a happy, crafty filled one.

Wendy these are gorgeous. My best friend had a 'blanket coat'as we called it when everyone else was wearing duffle coats-remember those(25 years ago!!) She of course REALLY wanted the duffle not her 'home made' blanket coat! Way back then her mum was upcycling. Who knew? I adore these coats!

hi wendy
its jane from Kabwares here- just spied 3 blankets at Mordi Salvos for around $8 each- 2 are purple check (quite bright) and one is orangs strip- similar to the check in the pics you have posted.
not sure if they would suit, so I didnt pick them up- but thought its close enough for you to pop in if youre interested. other than that I have not been in an oppie for a month!!
see you sunday :)

I so want one of those eskimo jackets for ME, but it just NEVER gets cold enough to wear something that thick here.
