Handmade Baby Shoes - floral fabric

I have finally got around to making some special shoes for Martha to wear to her Uncle George's wedding in August. I was able to learn from my mistakes in my previous shoe attempts and am really pleased with these ones. I now need to find a way of Martha being less interested in them as she constantly tries to eat them!

Picnic Cutlery Wrap

My latest project is to rejuvenate my old picnic hamper which originally belonged to my Grandparents and which i subsequently rescued from a life of storing fishing equipment in my parents garage. I hope by the end of the summer it will be fully kitted out for use on our family picnics! So my first task was cutlery storage, using a tea towel i have stitched together a wrap for storing my picnic cutlery. There are designated pockets for knives, forks and spoons. I used some 'east of India' ribbon to tie the wrap together. Picnic napkins and a fabric liner for the hamper coming soon.........
