A Peek Of What Is To Come

Just a quick few photos to show what I've been up to, what will be at the upcoming Warrandyte Market (I hope!), and what will hopefully pop up in the shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/WrigglePuss

Itty Bitty Shorts

Sunshine and Lollipops

I had called this "Recovering a Step Stool", but thought that was WAY to boring.

A few months back, Miss 4 and I went out around the town to run some errands. 
We drove past one street that had a sign saying 'Garage Sale'.
I did what anybody in their right mind would do and went right to it!!
Miss 4 fell in love with a step stool thing. 
I let her get it for three reasons;
1. It brought back memories of my childhood
2. I hoped it would stop arguments over the 1 IKEA step we have 
3. It was $2 

Bless the girl, there was another one there that was in better condition, but she chose this one.

(forgot to take a picture before I pulled it apart, my bad)

The bottom wasn't too bad, just a bit out of shape, which hubby quickly fixed this morning.

After a quick extremely long trip to Spotlight to buy a staple gun, (can you believe hubby has a shed full of 'stuff' but no staple gun?!?!) this is what it looks like now.

Much better with some IKEA fabric (which doesn't seem to be available anymore).

Hope she likes it!!

Oh, and what's with Blogger turning all my photos the wrong way?!?!

What's New?

My new fabric labels

A new set for Little Miss 4
(who now wears a size 6 shirt)

Fabric for Custom Orders

Here is the start of many, many fabrics that I currently have. I will be adding photos of more as soon as I take them. Which will be when I organise my fabric cabinet. Which looks like it would take a lifetime.

Doin' It For The Kids

Just wanted to share a picture of the matching shorts/singlet set that I've made to donate to the Kid's Market Central Vic's auction for Bendigo Centre Care's Christmas Toy Drive. 

Wow, that was a mouthful!

Here's the link for the auction

I am in <3 with that little bird!

about telling me about that garage sale..........

Meh, it was only 6 bucks!

The Chicken or The Egg?

After a week or so of being too afraid to crack this baby;

I finally made the hubby do it, and this is what came out

Not exactly the triple yolker we were expecting (secretly hoping for!), however we were still able to turn it into some delicious Golden Syrup Dumplings!!! 
Thanks Nesty (AKA Old Faithful)!!!

Works In Progress

 One Birthday Present
Two Christmas Presents 
 A Whole Lot of Gnomes
 A Girly AIO
And some organisation for the crafty corner!!

That's what I've been up to this week. Hoping the hubby gets around to fixing up my fabric storage tonight, I need to get my stuff sorted!!!
Then off to the Steiner School Fair and to the big smoke to celebrate 2 family birthdays on Sunday (one is the big 5-0!!!), with another 3 family birthdays on Monday! 
Busy, busy weekend, hopefully back to the creating next week. I've got some cute ideas for boys clothes!

Just had to share this one;

Pretty sure it comes from Old Faithful AKA Nesty.

She appears to have recovered well. Meaning that she is not hiding in the corner of the coop muttering 'Never again....never again'

Latest Etsy Items

Finally managed to beat the computer yesterday and get the photos for my new items uploaded on to Etsy.
Here's the link


After years of practising I have finally created an AIO that I am happy with!
They are even better than I imagined, because I managed to find a way to use wool instead of PUL. And not just that, repurposed wool! Recycling = happy planet!
Am excited to make a few up and get them into my Etsy shop, just need to find the time with 3 kids!

The New Addition

Meet the latest member of the WrigglePuss family. I like to call her Betsy.

Picked her up at an op shop for $30. The hubby is sewing on her as we speak. Not sure who's toy it is.....
This may just be my favourite bit about her!

The waiting begins......

Listed my first 3 items on e.bay today. Now the truth happens, to see if anyone wants to buy my stuff! I don't think I will consider myself 'worthy' until I sell at least one!!!

The Original WrigglePuss

Audrey - 4 Days Old


After 4 years of testing and retesting nappy patterns I've finally found one I'm happy with (lucky too, my laundry basket is full of some of the not so successful). I'm in the middle of sewing up a few to try and sell on Ebay. Fingers crossed!
