Next project

Well, a new year calls for some new projects. Project number one (I think...) is to make this pattern (to the right) using this orange and yellow vintage sheet (courtesy of Wonthaggi and Phillip Island op shops).



Then, I think the Amy Butler Barclona skirt using this sheet:
And I'm not sure what to do with this Sesame Street sheet. I think appliqued onto denim and made into a little top? Or on a T? I've got a whole single bed sheet of them so I could do that AND more!

Here is my other op shop score.....


With a few inspiring patterns.....

And these, just because I love the illustration....

It's a pity I can't get my hands on the publication advertised on the back of the book......
Now there's some inspiration for the whole year!~ : )

Great op shop finds. I agree with Curlypops about the scary baby though!

I love Enid Gilchrist. I've collected four of her pattern books and love to giggle at some of the designs. Especially the all important "car coat" and buttoned together shirt and pants for small boys.
