My Creative Space - Something for me

My Creative Space today is this tunic/dress that I made using the material I bought from Global Fabrics last week.

Don't you love it when you make something and it fits right first time and it looks like you wanted it to?

I'm really pleased with it.
It's made using Burda 7798.
I am smiling here ... honestly.
I'm also thinking about what I'm going to stick in the kids' lunchboxes, wondering where my oldest daughter's school shoes are and thinking about what to get out of the freezer for dinner. Know the feeling?


I've finished the back of Maddy's sweater. I don't think I'm going to have enough
of the recycled wool to finish it but I'm sure it all work out in the end. I'll figure out a way to stretch what I have even if I have to make the sleeves shorter. Any other suggestions?


Eloise's Creative Space is this mad hairstyle she gave herself this morning.

It's been a year since I started this blog and I have a giveaway to celebrate. Enter here if you want to!

What's your Creative Space today? Thanks to Kirsty at Kootoyoo for hosting this great game.

Oh that hairstyle is brilliant...that really made me smile. My son used to love putting pretty little things in his hair(he went to a family day care centre and was one of the only boys there!) and it bought back those cute memories. The dress looks lovely.

The tunic is gorgeous, I've never had a chance to make clothes for myself but would really love to take the time to do it sometime. I love cute little Eloise's hair, very trendy!!

I can see why you were drawn to that fabric and had to buy it, it looks fantastic used as that top. I wish I could find more prints that I liked. You did a great job on that top too. Couldn't fit you more perfectly.

Catherine said...

the tunic is gorgeous Sarah!! Re jumper and not enough wool maybe you could do a mulitcolour jumper, like patchwork. xo

Penny said...

Oh Sarah - you made something for yourself and were happy with it? I can only dream. This is the exact reason I didn't pursue sewing when I was younger - everything I touched turned to shite! Good for you!

julie k said...

Little Ted Canvas said...

Congratulations on your sewing project that worked out! It's a great feeling when a piece of clothing you make works first time! It doesn't happen often for me. Happy Creative Thursday! xo

Your tunic is lovely and suits you so well! Your jumper is kicking along beautifully too...oh I wish I could knit that fast. Hope you have a happy weekend :)

Glennie said...

Love the tunic, love the shoes, love the hair ... re the knitting - love that green colour - how about making the sleeves striped with the green, pinks, lemons and lilac ??? Glennie x

Cotton Kiwi said...

Thanks for all your lovely comments everyone! And thanks for the tips on using different colours on the sleeves for Maddy's sweater. I think I will probably go with that option if I run out. Fingers crossed I don't!

littleminx said...

the top/dress is fantastic - you must be really proud. I love the fabric (and yes, know the feeling well!)

That tunic is lovely! I wish I could sew something like that for myself :)
