A Quilt For Emma

I finally finished my first quilt! 

It is for my good friend Lou's little girl 
Emma first birthday. 

 For the front of the quilt I wrote a poem, found a cool crayon font and had it printed at Spoonflower
I picked an adorable Koala print also from Spoonflower for the back.

I bought the purple polka dot fabric for the border and the pre-made bias binding from GJ's Fabrics.

Having a look at my colour choices! 
I was quite happy with this combo, not too girly girl!

I used a walking foot so the fabric would 
evenly feed through the machine.

The masking tape was used as a guide to get 
lovely stright lines.

Mitring the corners is always a bit tricky. 
I machine stitched the binding down on one side, folded it around to the other side 
and hand stitched it down.

I hand embroidered my name and the date to add a little special touch!

Lou and Emma looking happy!

I am very happy too with how it turned out! 
I'm already dreaming of my next one, 
adult size next time!

SJP Interview

The Vogue channel is always a great 
place to procrastinate 
when you should be organising a year long trip!

Cover Girl

I watch the show Girls but am not sure that I like it. I find the characters hard to relate to and annoying

Why do i keep watching? Bloody good question, it's just one of those things…

I was pleasantly surprised when Lena Dunham scored the cover of Vogue, 
 made a little video and 

I LOVED it!!!

Color Crazy

J. Crew keeps capturing my attention. 

With killer heels, fabulous color 
and cute videos I'm smitten! 

I am very excited to discover they have a 
store in Toronto! 

289 shoes….sigh!

Mina + Oli Clutch

This is one of my favourite Mina + Oli bags! 

I love the texture of the dusty floral print fabric and the lovely colour of the leather.
