I've been very busy sewing and embroidering this past week and so thought I'd share some finished items on here.
The first two outfits are a commission and are off to live with a nice lady in the UK. One Toddler and one Sasha outfit: The lady didn't want any appliques so tops are plain.
As you can see, Teddy is once again in touch with his 'feminine side' as he models this outfit for me!
Whilst Nuria as usual looks gorgeous in any colour!
Then between commissions, yesterday I 'played' again with my embroidery hoop on my lovely (I cannot say it enough times how 'lovely' this machine is!!!) new machine.....
The first design is some simple flowers in red and blue which is being modelled by Meredith, a Journey Girl from Toys R Us. You might remember that when I was in the UK last October I went with my friend Dee to buy a Journey Girl from her local Toys R Us. At that time they were not available on the Iberian Peninsular apparently. However, the other day I visited Toys R Us in Malaga and there they were! It seems that they are now available again in Spain and Portugal, so I decided to buy two....just in case they stop stocking them again! ;) And the great thing is they are much cheaper here too! They are £30 each in the UK, €29,99 each in places like France, Germany and Belgium (plus the postage of course) but here in Spain they are ONLY €24,99!!! Which at today's exchange rate is about £19!!!! Don't you just love a bargain!
Anyway, I digress, here is the top, I also made the circle skirt and socks to go with it. These photos were taken today on our usual Sunday morning 'jaunt'.
Close up of the simple design. I embroidered it onto sweatshirt fabric.
And the second design which I've made up into a similar sized sweatshirt is of four cute and colourful owls sitting in a row on a tree branch. This one is being modelled by Claudia from Bonnie & Pearl:
I have also embroidered a Sasha sized sweatshirt which is not made up yet....I am thinking of making it into a full outfit and putting it up for sale here on my blog, so if you're interested, please watch this space!!!
Thanks so much for looking, I hope you've enjoyed seeing my weeks' sewing photos.
I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend so far and that the week ahead is a good one for you!!! We are off home to Sevilla on Tuesday, after more than 10 months at the coast! I think I'm going to be doing a bit of dusting before I can start any more sewing, wouldn't you agree?!!!
