April's here already - so as it's the first of the month thought it was time for another giveaway!
I've been busy trying new ideas for wristlets after completing my first one for the Bag Ladies Swap over on Flickr. Here is the latest creation, a nice mix of crisp white and pinks! There are one or two little imperfections with this one (I am a perfectionist - unfortunately one little mistake drives me mad!) so it turned out to be a sample but is still very usable!

Back to the giveaway - here is what is on offer:

To win leave a comment telling me what you are busy making this April!
~ Even if you're not a Crafter leave a comment for a chance to win!
Good luck! Draw will be made late this Sunday and winners announced Monday!

Hi am new to visiting your blog have to say I love all your work. By the way I can't turn down a giva away.

I mainly have plan for April is to crochet and sew. Have a lot of crocheting to do for my swap blog called Swap Swap Gals.

Sewing I like to get started on sewing my little girls some spring and summer clothes. Also for sewing and crocheting plan on getting a couple of things up in a small shop up and sell. Other then that mainly just taking care of my little ones and hoping we don't get anymore snow.:)

Again love your blog will totally have to visit more. :) keep up the great work.

What great colors - I sure do love pink! This month, I will finish knitting my brown Lucy bag (a felted bag) and I need to start on cutting and piecing together my tshirt quilt (you know, all the supplies are bought, but it's just a matter of finding time to do things!). Thanks for the free giveaway!

What won't I be doing this month. I have a fair to attend in May so I will be stocking up there! My daughter also needs me to make a cushion for her in the car!

Hope this is worthy enough to enter the draw!

Hi, I'm new to your blog and it's just wonderful. Well this month I will be working on a doll dress with a petticoat and panties and a corset and a Hat for Izabella I've had her for about 3 years now and she needs a outfit.I just started making her undergarments last week I too am a perfectionist and this doll is very hard for me to fit and she is very old and I don't like to handle her to much because she has been repaired and I don't think they did a good job.This is my sister in laws doll she got from her Aunt. You can read about it at justbeingcrafty
and this is a wonderful giveaway.
Thank You

Hopefully i'll be getting a few sewing books soon though and teaching myself. Go me! x
So cute! I love the colors together!

I am going to try to make my first (adult) dress this season. I have made oodles of toddler dresses but it;s high time to make myself a little something. Or try anyway!!

I think it looks great. I bother about imperfections in the stuff I make. This month I am finishing up a quilt I have on the go and then making a quilt out of a load of charm squares that I want to get rid of. Hope your enjoying the final beginning of spring

This month I am busy making a redwork snow man quilt. There are a bunch of embroidered pieces surrounded by patchwork. It's very cute and I'm having lots of fun working on it!

Zippy pouches

Remember the QAYG panels from yesterday?
Ta-da! Here they are made into new zippy pouches!

These were so much fun to make and I'm kinda in love with them :)
I used the open wide zippered pouch tutorial from Noodlehead, although I went with my own measurements based on the panels I made and added a little divided pocket to the large pouch. They have a really good firm structure due to the wadding from the QAYG method, and although the QAYG method did take a bit more time than using a single fabric I really like the finished texture and feel of them.

Some people on IG and Flickr asked how I managed to get the stitching so neat. If you look really closely it's not perfect! I used Coats Cotton in white to sew with both as top thread and in the bobbin, stitch length 2.5 (on my Bernina 1005) and my 1/4 inch foot. When I get to the end of a row all I do is keep the needle in the work, lift up the presser foot, pivot, carefully raise the needle and move the work over so the edge of th…

Presenting the new restyled - refashioned sewing box!

Well it's finished - and I'm really pleased with it!
It may not be to every ones taste but it needed to have a little bit of pink in there somewhere!

After taking it apart completely, sanding it down, priming it, spray painting it, trying to put it back together in one go and then lining the compartment it was all worth it. It's been a learning curve!
This is also the first time that I've used spray paint - I'm normally a paint and paint brush kind of girl but now I'm a total convert and can see an addiction forming!
It's definitely worth paying the extra for the can of primer but the UK weather does not help when you're trying to spray paint and the wind is blowing and it's threatening rain!!
Now all I need to do is fill it with all my sewing bits and bobs!

Photos are not of great quality as it is so dull here at the moment! More photos over on flickr!
