Silhouette Cameo Dust Cover

I recently treated myself to a Silhouette Cameo and decided it needed a dust cover (not that it spends much time sitting around doing nothing). Silhouette have just bought out dust covers for them but they are only availabe in the USA, so I decided to make my own. And this is the result! I decorated it with the new Happi Bird Dies from Sizzix, cut out of fabric with bondaweb on the back. And even though the sewing isn't pefect I am really pleased with it. Here is the link for the pattern I found on the internet. You need to increase the pattern in something like Photoshop to get the right size but that wasn't too tricky. Now does my Cricut machine need a matching one? LOL

Folk Art Halloween Boots and Hat - Hocus Pocus!

I've been busy sewing the last few days (don't you just love Summer Holidays to have time to play) and I made this lovely pair of witchey boots and a matching hat. The pattern came from ebay. The pattern is so clear and easy to use and my sewing skills are fairly limited but I am really pleased with the results. It's never too early for Halloween!
