Another Insa.

I had another go at the Insa.

I used vintage sheets for the underskirt and red cord for the over skirt. I used shop bought ric rac, crocheted ric rac and a couple of crochet motifs for decoration.

I crocheted the Bebop cardi last October, details here.


Looks like this one passes the twirly whirly test too.

I have that 'the more I sew, the more I want to sew' thing going on at the moment. I am a bit obsessed. Shame the girls have other ideas and plans for the school holidays.

This gorgeous P is for Pepper t'shirt is made by the very clever Samantha. I won it in a giveaway over at her Passion fruit Lane blog. Thanks so much Samantha, we love it.

We're hosting a farm day for the local school holiday program today. I'd better go and put my overalls on.

I hope you have a fun day today. XX

  16. I can't tell you what you do to me. I just want to run away and catch a train then hitch a ride to Daylesford with a pile of fabric, yarn and hooks on my back and spend a weekend creating great stuff with you. It's gorgeous Kate. I love it.

  17. hope school day went well! I loved visiting farms when in school. And I can't get over the delightful blue doily on the back of the skirt. Wonder how much scandal I would cause at the College if I showed up in something similar.

  19. Oh, the first outfit made me weak at the knees... Must buy that book, the skirt is fabulous. And if I could crochet... The cardi goes so well with the skirt! And the crocheted flowers, I wish I could make those...

    Thought I'd write at least some in english, as my friends here were getting cranky with my Swedish Chef impersonations....

  23. I have total fabric stash envy going on here. I love all the skirts you're making. The vintage fabric is a killer - so awesome. Love the way to blend and match and then through in a bit of crochet too. So very creative. So fun. So stylish. So special.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
