Book Week - The Wizard of Oz!

She's off to see the Wizard! We have just returned home from an epic adventure around Australia and we're busy settling back into school, work, civilization! Luckily though, we were back just in time for the fun that is Book Week! Last year a perfectly chosen for her, Fancy Nancy, was a breeze as we had all the Fancy bits lying around - and being worn on a daily basis.

the Rosie round up! Part two.

On our last post we ran you through a handful of the different ways people were sewing up the Ring Around the Rosie pattern. Today we have some more varieties to share with you ...  Deirdre showed us that the middle panel on the Rosie is perfect for a bit of appliqué! Her gorgeous flower mixed with the bright red and white stripes has created an outfit that I'm sure will be adored and passed down for generations to come! You can see more of her beautiful work on her instagram page.  Brooke used a soft and feminine fabric that looks amazing with...
