I did have a go at making myself some button brooches from the artsycraftybabe blog. They turned out ok - not as good as hers though. Em decided to claim the yellow one & has hidden it in her room somewhere so I will have to track it down (it would be my favourite of the 2 as well).
I have also bought a Newlook pattern to make a long sleeve top for me. I will be making the white style top, but making it shorter. I am going to make it with this red spot cotton with embroidery all over (bargain from spotlight - end of roll had about 4m on for $10).
Tonight I cut out a vintage wrap skirt pattern from a fab green & yellow floral vintage sheet for me, so I am getting there!
Today I did get some smurf fabric to make Liam some pants - I have been after it for a while, but usually sells for a mint on ebay. I found this drill print from 1980 at a local retro type store for more than you would pay in an opshop, but much cheaper than ebay, so I was rather happy.
A couple of weeks back I stumbled across a thrift store that was selling out someones stash of mags they had donated & got this lot for 10c a pop - so I bought about 20 - they are just lovely to look at (esp when hiding from kids in toilet !!) if nothing else.
