Halloween Costume

I've just ordered this pattern from McCalls! I've ordered both the adults size and the child size, as I plan on making it for me as a Halloween costume and for my little sisters Birthday in January. I'm sure she'll love it! :D

The finished backpack!

I finished India's backpack today! Here are some pictures:

I think she's gonna love it! :) It took a bit of careful thinking to get the lining and outside sewn to the top zip piece without showing any seams, but I got there in the end :D Its made from interfaced linen to keep it stiff, and the lining and side pocket is gingham. And yes those are packing peanuts in there, India asked for some in about May, so I've been collecting them from packages and parcels since then! :)

Buttons and bows

This is the bag that I made for Dom's step sisters 13th birthday. I forgot to take a photo but the inside is lined with black satin. The outside is made from taffeta. I also tried my first zip closure on a handbag! It went well, I'm really happy with it :)
My vintage pattern came on Tuesday! I haven't had a chance to play around with it properly yet, but I love it already.
Dom also bought me a Venus fly trap yesterday! :D It's an amzing little thing. Here's a photo :

On this photo you can see the trap that I fed a spider to! Its started oozing goo, which is a good sign, as it means its started to digest the spider :D

New pattern!

I bought a new pattern today from ebay. Its my first vintage pattern, and I can't wait till it gets here!
I still haven't got round to taking a picture of my jacket, and my dress still needs straps, but I'll get round to it eventually :)
