Bow Belt!

Yay! I'm getting back into this sewing lark! Now I've made Bow Belt from 
Tilly's Love at First Stitch Book! 

I'd thought I'd go for the neon yellow cotton fabric to go with my Navy Duck Dress for a bit of quirk. 

If you haven't heard of Tilly and her amazing yet simple patterns head on over to 
Tilly's Blog you won't be disappointed!

Ta Ta for now!!

My first creation from Love at First Stitch

Hi all at last I'm back! I'd received the ever so fab Love at First Stitch book by Tilly Walnes for my birthday from the hubby and finally got round to making the Brigitte Scarf! ! I can't believe how simple it was to make and love Royal Blue Polka Dot Cotton it was real easy to work with

Happy Sewing!
