Show and Tell

It's always great to hear that people have enjoyed making my designs but I get a real thrill when they send me photos as I love to see their own fabric choices . Khris made her version of Frances Frog in no time.

Jules had been looking to make a machine apron when she came across my pattern .



Lisa also sent me her gorgeous version of the machine apron .
The machine apron pattern was published in Handmade v27 no 5 .
The pattern for Frances Frog is available from my shop or my ebay store or email me .
Thanks girls for sending me the photos .

I love seeing what people make with their machines. I just got mine and am still learning.

I love to see what personal tweak people can put to a pattern.
There are a lot of very talented and creative people out there! :^)

Your "font" colors are a bit difficult to read on your site. You may want to consider changing them.

I do follow and love your blog & designs. Someday I'd love to make a Frances The Frog. Very cute design.

But for now I'm busy making things for various charity fundraisers. I know Frances the Frog would be delightful for a kids' gift basket at a fundraiser, so hopefully someday I can give Frances The Frog a try. Definitely a cutie.

I'd love to make Frances The Frog in Hawaiian/tropical fabrics and post about her on my blog. But then I also think she'd be cute with embellishment (freehand machine embroidery, fabric paint sticks, jewels, etc). Sew many ideas to create cute Frances the Frogs and share insights.

You are one talented lady! Love the pictures of the projects. Keep us the good work. I hope to make a frog for my daughter soon. She is an adult now and still loves frogd.

Oh I love the frog! How cute is he?!! :D Congrats on having your item in Handmade - the machine apron is a wonderful idea.

I'm intrigued by the machine apron. Not something I've ever seen before. Will this stop everything I park infront of the machine as I work from falling on the floor as I get up from the table... like the pin case, scissors, needles, and all other hazards to bare feet!! Must try it!
