Sunny Sunday


Bec and her Little Miss popped in for a crafty playdate thisafternoon.

We had a wonderful time drinking cups of tea and eating home made (by Little Miss) raspberry bundt cake with double cream.... mmmmm


I dragged out all of my vintage self covering buttons kits and Bec made these cute little animal buttons for me.

 
I gave Little Miss her new brooch which she loved, and then decided to make a few more in random colours.



I also managed to do quite a bit of cutting to whip up some Gadget Pouches and Sunnies/Specs Pouches...


including some beautiful new Kokka fabrics that I bought at The Retromummy Shop last week.

....and in super exciting breaking news, Liz emailed to let me know that she spotted one of my brooches in The Age - M Magazine today in an article about Dear Gladys. I didn't buy The Age today - did anyone else see it?

Oh dear, I don't usually read the paper on paper. Hope you can find a copy! If you go to a supermarket late on a Sunday night they've often got a pile of the magazine inserts left over.

And congratulations!!

Page 13! Doesn't name the maker of the lovely brooch which is a shame but the shop gets a great review. You'll have to get a copy for the Curly Pops scrap book! xo

I think the random colour brooches are a winner. You could make themin seasonal groups too. Cherrie

That's so exciting about the paper, that's a keeper! Kids craft is so great and button covering is just perfect.

Might be a stupid question but where do you get the little metal bits for the top of your gadget pouches? I've never looked but can you get them at Spotlight or somewhere?
