The bottom of the bag was stitched shut from the outside and I could have finished off the seam as per the tute (and I will probably give that a try next time) but decided to strengthen it up by "binding" it in a scrap of brown fabric. Afterwards I added the snaps so the bag could be folded up and stored inside a handbag.
This bag is a present for my step mother. I main part of her present is an Emmeline apron (ya know the Montessori by hand pattern?) and I thought a shopping bag in some matching fabric would be a good accompaniment. I immediately recalled the Tute I had seen and thought I would have a go. The Emmelina apron is reversible and has the blue fabric pictured on one side and Moda Shangri-la Damask (same as used for the bag) on the other.
Happy birthday Jill!

This year the East Fremantle Festival will be held on 7th December from 1pm-8pm. It is held on George St in East Fremantle. The street is closed off to traffic and there is an adundance of stuff to see and do, including an Artisans market, where tin whislte will have its stall. Last year over 10,000 people attended the event (I was one of them!). I am not sure whether to be really excited or nervous at having to put together enough stock for that many people to pick over!
The 7th December just happens to be my 11th wedding anniversary, so if you wish me a happy anniversay I will give you a 10% discount!
Girls and boys retro dungaree's, shorty dungaree's and dresses sizes 6-24 months
I am unsure if I have specifically blogged about the Shorty dungaree's that I now carry in my tin whistle range. Essentially they a shorter version of my retro dungaree's. A friend of mine ordered some for her little girl, so I took the oportunity to snap some pics of Zoe modelling them for me. Zoe wears a size 2 pair, which is a bit oversized on her as she is only 14 months old. In case your wondering about this gorgeous fabric its the tres expensive Oilily Kimono Blossom in the red/pink colourway.

We love the suburb where we live and the kids are happy at their school, so when we saw this house come on the market we decided to go for it. Origionally built in the 1930's it was extensively renovated and extended about 15 years ago. We move in just over 3 weeks. Lots to do. I am trying not to panic!
The following two tops were a once-of special order for my step-sister as I dont normally sell adult clothes. She admired the top I blogged here and asked that I make her a couple. I think this farbic is called flutterby, its by Moda.
Elizabeth also received her first cutsom order! She makes little twirl skirts and even has her own label called "little whistle"! Here are the 3 skirts she made for the custom order.
Bugaboo cameleon hood and liner in horse fabric and lined with a dark green solid fabric.
The hood and seat liner on the owners own brown base cameleon. Looks gorgeous!
I threw in a matchting stroller bag. I had an idea for a new design and wanted to give it a try.
Size 1 retro dungaree's in chocolate corduroy and The very hungry caterpillar "spots" fabric.
Matching set of pram liners for a double Mountain Buggy Urban pram.
Actually now that I have blogged them all it doesnt seem like such a bad effort! Especially since I spent 8 days in October on holidays in Broome!
