The Circle Box

So these were fun to make!  I do like projects that I can sew by hand whilst watching our girls bounce happily on the trampoline outside, especially when they are so cute and useful ... the boxes I mean (cheeky!).

Made with Cotton + Steel Fabrics

Made with Tiger Lily fabrics

I ended up making three in total.  All in the smaller size ... the pattern (go get it, it's a good one) has two sizes to choose from.

Here's the last one ...

Fabric is Chic Neutrals by Amy Ellis for Moda

My daughter had a say in the fabrics, as they were her teacher's gifts.  We filled them with choccies and picked some roses from our garden to decorate the wrapping.

Master Monty "helped" as well ... he recommended filling them with cans of tuna ... we had to remind him that these gifts weren't for him, hence his slightly put-out expression.

We are not amused

We are currently enjoying summer school holidays here ... so far we've filled our time with a lovely beach holiday to our South West, plastic jewellery kits, sun baking with Master Monty, trips to see baby farm animals and jumping around on bouncy castles ... and we still have 4 weeks to go!

Now, if only my immune system wasn't on holiday too ... I've had three illnesses in six weeks!

Come on body ... this Mumma wants to have some FUN with her kids!

"Fun" is my word for the year ... I'm going to own it like a Boss.

Hope you are healthy and happy in your part of the world!?

Happy 2016!
