A few weeks ago I had a lovely surprise and found myself to be the winner of a sewing machine from Spotlight!  I have made two things so far and can't wait to make more. Here's just a quick look.

I have been hating the storage solutions for clothes in our house for some time now. I have been putting all sorts of underwear into these tiny little draws. I can never find what I want, let alone matching socks. After unsuccessfully googling my problem I had a brainwave. The hubby and I have been throwing out old clothes so I cut a few up into squares, sewed them together, added some tulle off an old wedding dress we have lying around; and one Saturday afternoon later I have space! 

I also brought these terribly cheap patterns off Trademe for around $2. I have started making my first ever proper dress. I will post a picture when it is finished.

I have also lengthened a dress I had, with some lace which I love. I think the dress looks much more grown up.
