JoCole Leggings review and some Skandi fun!

Sometimes, it's the simple things that are the very best. 

Two basic pairs of leggings, devoid from any embellishments, but created from exceptional fabric. 

Lil  (8) will wear these leggings to death. Under too-short tunics, with long tees, under short skirts, with her boots. 

The one left is from Sanetta Vichy knit, the right, GITTA in red/white. Both cotton/spandex fabrics from Germany, and quite possibly better quality than any high end children's wear you will buy in Australia.( Oh yes, I was once THAT mum, before I started sewing some 22 years ago, my eldest was only ever in designer clothes. But the quality was missing?).

Jo's patterns are simply the BOMB. She has degrees in this stuff, and boy does it show. The presentation and cut of these patterns is brilliant. She gives you so much information, you will feel like you've just been to sewing class. Truly, check them out.

And a spiffy tee I whipped up to match, this is Otto #301, of course. In STELLA and our new Skandi Mushies!

Limited Edition Butterfly Mama Skirt

I have a new design available in the  Crafty Mamas store, but for a limited time...

The Butterfly Mama Skirt!

I love making these. They are so flattering on and I challenge anyone to be less than joyful when swanning about in my Butterfly Mama skirt.

It comes with options too! I can make it suitable for before and after bub wear...and also in plus sizes and in a solid colour if Rainbow Spirals are not your bag. 

The best thing about my skirts- I custom make them for you.

Last night I started a HUGE project, and I really should not have. I was up all night- tossing and turning- wanting to finish it!

Tonight I need to add the hood, bottom row, sleeves and binding for front. I tell you, these Elf Coats are so much fun to make! I started on arm warmers last week, and this week, the coats.

 No Op Shop is safe now! 
Keep watching for many more to come!



Another thing I have caught..the UNDIES BUG! Yep, I am churning out Undies in huge amounts. I am even selling my UNDIES now ( bet that throws back some interesting Blogger word searches!). 

Made from high quality, fun designer fabrics, so soft..and comfy, and elastic free, hand made undies rock. 
Who wouldn't be happy wearing these?  
Want some of my UNDIES?
 Sold in a coordinating Set of 2 UNDIES,in sizes 2-12.
Fully lined, one piece bodies ( so no lumpy crotch seam).
Fabrics: Your choice from the CM Shop.
Beautiful and soft.
