The Versatile Wrap

Make It Perfect, The Versatile Wrap

.King Auction.

If you’re a Facebook lurker, I reckon you might have read about the charity auction happening for the King family.  It starts tomorrow night (Thursday 9th Feb, 9:30pm QLD time) and Naomi from Seven Cherubs and Nicole from The Cupcake Fairy have been working their butts off to get it all happening!

I couldn’t decide what to donate for the auction…Citrus Pop stuff, sewing patterns/book, clothing?  Then today I received a parcel of Lotta Jansdotter’s new Echo fabric in the mail and BINGO – a bit of speed sewing tonight and one brand new Versatile Wrap skirt up for grabs!

I looooove this fabric, the whole range is stunning and I’ve stocked up on it because I’m guessing it will sell out quick.

If you want to score yourself a new wrap skirt (one that comes all made and ready to wear!) then head over to the auction now!  I’ve also thrown in a copy of the Versatile Wrap pattern because I know you’ll want to sew your own once you’ve started wearing this one!

P.S. Of course there are loads of other awesome things up for grabs in the auction, go and check them out

.New Wraps for the Fair.

It feels like my sewing machine has been working overtime the last couple of weeks – the Craft & Quilt Fair in Sydney is coming up in just over a week and I’ve almost finished sewing all the samples I need for it.  (Did I mention that I’ll be in Melbourne for the Craft & Quilt Fair as well?!)  I’ll be giving 1/2 hour presentations in the Sewing Studio at 10:30am and 2pm…if you go to the Sydney Show, come and visit me so that I’m not talking to myself!
I do have an abundance of Versatile Wraps, they are my favourite skirt to wear so its always nice to sew a few more to wear and show during the Fair.  
Here are the latest two additions…yellow and grey is hip at the moment, I love the fabric by Joel Dewberry:


 Aimee at Greentree has been making gorgeous clay necklaces, I love the grey/yellow combination and it goes perfectly with my new skirt so had to have one!  

I know this damask print is supposed to sit the other way, but I ordered the wrong amount of fabric and could only make it fit if I made it go sideways!  Still, I’m happy with it…

It’s nice to have skirts made from more wintery style fabrics that I can wear with boots…and they are versatile enough to have a kick of the soccer ball in the backyard too!
