If you’re in Prague and looking for some unique Christmas gifts, I hope you can stop by the Diplomat Hotel on Saturday the 23rd November 2013. 10am – 4pm. For more information about the Christmas Market visit the IWAP website. 

I’ve gone a bit Purse mad

Having realised that I accumulated in excess of twenty 15cm zippers of varying colours, and tempting to “clean up” my sewing cupboard I have been busy the past 3 weeks testing patterns and making a few purses for friends and family. Here are a few of my finished products.

I particularly like the style of the Pyramid Purse, so in the coming weeks a few will be available to purchase through my Etsy Shop www.madebynomes.etsy.com

Homemade Gifts

This year I set myself a goal to sew more clothes and to make gifts for my friends and family. A few birthdays have already been and I hope my special people like the gifts I’ve been making. Here are a few photos I wanted to share with you.
