and two Japanese Oversize Evening Clutches. I made myself one of these particular clutches and have found it so practical to take out in the evening to wear with black, grey and mauve.

I am extremely grateful for all BrisStyle members who volunteered to (wo)man the stall.
Enjoying some shade......
Pulling out of this market did have an upside which was having a little more time for some experimental sewing. As a result I attempted a new handbag pattern I've been meaning to try for a few months. Once it was complete I had a certain person in mind who I thought might like it and sure enough it is now in the hands of Sally from Flight Industries!! http://caffeinatedprints.blogspot.com/ I've had several requests for bags with shoulder straps and I believe this fits the bill, so I'll have several of these in my store over the coming months, and they will most definitely be on display at the December BiDM.
Despite being a little under the weather I've still had a few custom orders to do over the past two weeks which was fun, including a matching gathered skirt and handbag for a lovely little 2 year old girl. My little Rose looked on with a sad little face when she realised they weren't for her, so I might have to replicate it a few sizes bigger!!
As for the little guy, for being such an enthusiastic supporter of my bag making I'm going to make him a few pairs of shorts. He often wanders into my sewing room and with such enthusiasm (and not a hint of sarcasm - thankfully too young) asks "What are you making Mumma, a bag?" I've had this fabric in my stash for about 18 months and I think it's time!
Anyway, first day of the school holidays today so it's time to make pancakes, Canadian style.........

Back to the here and now, and with Spring upon us I made a spring inspired clutch from my favourite fabric, Small Gathering by Anna Maria Horner. This fabric was recommended to me by Elissa from Kelani Fabric Obsession and it was only when it arrived in the post from her that I understood why (thanks Elissa!).
My lovely Rose did a much better job of modelling my clutch than I did!!
This warm weather has also got me thinking about summer dresses and I can think of no better than this Fabulous Wrap Dress from Thea and Sami:
It is made from 100% organic linen and can be found here http://www.thea-sami.com.au/fabulous_wrap_dress.html. I will have to catch her at the Young Designers Market (1st Sunday of each month) and have a closer look!!
Inspired (perhaps not the right word!!) by the swine flu my poor husband got (and me, mildly) here is my Pink Pig Mini Clutch
It is lined with an unbleached linen/cotton which I found at Kelani Fabric Obsession (see link on my blog) and is just what I was after to coordinate with this Japanese pink linen/cotton fabric.
Both of these new products are available now in my etsy shop http://www.nosovich.etsy.com/.
