Handmade Underwear!

I have been working very hard to come up with a few different underwear patterns of my own since buying a Knicker making kit from last year.
After several days of trial and error I have finally developed 4 different styles.
Here are a few pictures of the first style... I'm yet to come up with witty names for all of them. So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated :-)
They are extremely comfortable, and luxurious to wear :-)
Hopefully I'll be able to add a few more pictures in the not too distant future of the other designs :-)
Soon the underwear will be available in my Etsy and DaWanda stores in Australian sizes ranging from 8 to 16. There will also be some MENS styles coming soon!! :-)

New Hat Pattern AND Kit!

I have just added one of my original hat sewing patterns to my Etsy, DaWanda, and Felt stores. This pattern, for a 100% reversible Mod Cap, is available on it's own or as part of a Kit. The kit includes all the fabric and interfacing you need, along with instructions and the full sized pattern.
You can use the pattern over and over again to make many wonderful hats using all your favourite fabrics. You don't need much fabric to complete the hat so it's a great way to use up all those little scraps of that special fabric you have been saving.
Making small projects like this is also a great excuse to go for a treasure hunt in your local second hand store to find some vintage fabric, or you could rescue the fabric from an old shirt or a suit for a winter hat. Add a few buttons, or a badge. The possibilites are endless :-)
With the kits you have several fabric combinations to choose from. Below are just a few examples:
Cherry Cola

Black Strawberries

Chocolate Leaves

Black & White Cat
