Inspired by wonderfully creative Sewers

I am surrounded by all these wonderful sewers and it is really hard not to be inspired by them.
People that create magical things from pieces of fabric. It amazes me how they can just make something so beautiful!

I decided to make a dress for Charlotte whilst I was being inspired by them!
I cheated a bit and bought the pre shirred material but it was so pretty and I couldn't go past it.

Unfortunately Charlotte is sick so there are no action shots at the moment but they will be coming!!

I love craft swaps!

I am a member of a forum and I participate in the crafts swap that goes on there!
I thought this is where I would start my Charlimay blog!

My recipient this time around has just had a new baby boy, she already had one and she loved to knit so this is what I made for her!

For her 2 year old boy I made a crayon roll
The inspiration for this came from this blog
I had a bit of trouble with the ric rac but am sure I will perfect it in time!

I also made a singlet for her new little man!For the mad knitter that she is I made her a knitting needle holder. This is the first time I have made the needle holder and was quite happy with how it turned out.
I got the idea from a sewing book I have called The Crafter's Companion.
