Pinkilicious thrift store finds


Yesterday we went out in search of teapots, and this is what I came home with: A pink floral vintage single sheet, a pink jug (don’t they just match perfectly), and some bright coloured plastic knitting needles. The knitting needles will be used to make something like these, but using them for the stems instead of dowels, and maybe putting buttons in the middle?? Might have a play around with that later.

Remember this dress??

dress This was one of the things I completed on Wednesday (before my sewing machine died). I made this dress especially to match her gumboots, because she doesn’t have a lot of outfits that go with them, but she loves wearing them. I think it matches perfectly.


Speaking of sewing machines, I am getting a new one, WOOHOO!! Thanks to my wonderful mummy, I will be getting a Brother LS2160 as an early birthday present. I’ve ordered it online from Spotlight, so I have no idea how long it will take for them to send it, hopefully soon because I am SOOOOOO excited to start sewing again.

woohoo new sewing machine - Mum bought me a Brother for Xmas two years ago. I love that it's pretty much no frills and easy to use - I have the blue one though (no idea of the model number and can't be bothered getting off my butt to check lol)
The dress has turned out great - I love that you made it to go with gumboots!
Lovely pink finds - isn't it funny how you seem to arrive home with similar colours

Lucky you - that machine looks like it could just about cut out the fabric, pin it together and sew while you have a cuppa and look on! Your daughter looks super cute and I think it is so smart to make outfits that match her fave footwear rather than debate the issue every morning!

Pretty in pink! Great finds, I particularly love that jug, very shabby chic.
