There hasn’t been a lot of sewing going on around here lately, so I thought I’d flashback to last year when I made a dress for Halloween with fabrics from @spotlightstores Some pumpkin inspired face painting went well with it 🎃 #lithgowhalloween16 #sewing #selfdraftedpattern

I went to a sewing retreat last weekend (always lots of fun!) and this is one of the projects I started working on. I ran out of time to finish it so it's been temporarily put to the side for now until I get a chance to complete it! The pattern is the soon to be released Lulu Clutch from Tanglewebb @tanglewebbstudio

Just a simple box pouch - the first of many projects my Singer 201K will be handling.

I've been on the lookout for a 201K after hearing nothing but good things about them so I was so happy to see one pop up locally on Gumtree just recently. It sews just beautifully and leaves my other machines for dead! #singer #201k #vintage

It's been a long time between sewing projects for me. It's so nice to be back behind the machine again!

I have a new sewing room! After talking about moving for a few years now, we finally did it and it's totally awesome. One of the best things about this house is definitely this room. There's a lot more space for my sewing than in my last house and it's so exciting to be able to get this room organised. #AmysSewingRoom #kallax #workinprogress #mycreativespace

Flashback to the @bagfanaticsaustralia 2016 retreat when I made this bag out of cute cat fabric. Urban Bucket Bag pattern by @littlemoodesigns #littlemoodesigns #sewing #handmade

This is everyone I spent a heavenly few days with at the Bag Fanatics Retreat last week. So many talented ladies in one photo!

The third bag I made was all about the leather. This is the Matilda bag, made with a pattern created by Kellie @hide4350. You know what the cool thing about this bag is? To change things up a bit the fabric lining is reversible, or you could even make more in different colours for a completely new look!

While I was at the Bag Fanatics Retreat I was delighted to see someone else there with a similar style to me. Each day we would both turn up wearing a different dress we had made ourselves, my only regret was that we didn't take a photo together for each new outfit! Jen is my spirit animal, or as she likes to put it, we're dress soul sisters! @jenfoxsews

The second bag I completed at the Bag Fanatics Retreat was the Rubenesque Hobo bag, made with a pattern by @emkiedesigns

Just recently I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the Bag Fanatics Retreat and it was just amazing! This is the first bag I made while I was there - it's the Sew Compleat bag by @twoprettypoppets and I'm just in love with the combination of black and yellow 🐝🐝🐝
