It is very easy to make, it takes about 1-.5 hours and it is comprised of 26 tiles that you can print at home, with instructions. The instructions here are a short version.

It has been a really long time and I am a new MOM

The past 2 years have been packed with experiences but I haven't had a chance to post anything about it.
I had a really difficult pregnancy which resulted in me waddling instead of working. 
I had everything in the book except for nausea (which I hear is one of the worst side effects to being pregnant).
Now, I know people say that being pregnant doesn't mean you are sick, but it sure feels like it to me.

Well, then came my sweetest little baby Leah, and every day I become more and more addicted to her.
She is already one year old and I am working hard to try and rebuild my business, which is not easy after not being very active for almost 2 years.

Will definitely try to be here more often.

New sweatshirt in the making

It is getting cold around here, and I really need something warm and cosy to wear.
I still need to take some pictures on a live model, and to make more of this top before I post it in my store, but this is just a sneak peak.
Oh, almost forgot- the cowl is detachable so if you are feeling too hot , you can take it off, or use it as an accessory with other items from your wardrobe.

New long sleeved top

So, most of my jersey tops have 3/4 sleeves and I am always cold.
For the longest time I haven't made anything for me, only for my beloved customers.
I work quite a lot during the week, and lately I haven't had the energy for it.

It was my birthday yesterday and I got up today thinking I deserve a gift from me too!!!
So, went for it.
I had this design in my head for a while. It is reminiscent of my short sleeved ruffle top , but this is more dramatic.
Love how it turned out.

Something made my day- Wedding pictures

I have done quite a few weddings lately but for the first time I received some pictures of all those lovely bridesmaids I have been tormenting with my measurement taking regimen.

This is Molly's wedding pictures, photographs by Emma Case.
The wedding took place in the UK and I wish I had stunning pictures like these.
