I was clearing out my wardrobe and came across this halloween outfit i made last year! (im the 1 on the left)
 my sister had bought her dress from a charity shop again someone had obviously handmade it. We wanted to go as twins so i tried to copy the design and was really chuffed with the outcome.
I literally made the dress out of two cushion covers a double bed bottom sheet and a net cutrain!!

The back of the dress was my own added extra, as i had made the dress around my own measurements that i was taking (and im no dress maker!) i had made the dress to small at the back and so decided to do the corset back. I had some left over ribbon and added hoops all the way down the back and threaded the ribbon through, and it worked very well.

These red white and blue bags were given to our guests as a party favour! they contained hand made chocolates that with the help of food colouring had been made in red white and blue! simply brilliant!
Other bits at our party, including jelly! I made red jelly with wipped cream and blueberrys to give our fabulous red white and blue colours.

For the gingerbread i used stamps to get an image on the biscuit and then used iceing to decorate them.
For her majestys jubilee!!
we had a brilliant street party, loads of food and we all sang god save our queen countless times over!

My contribution to the tables was a mixture of cup cakes bannana bread, cheese scones, and gingerbread,

Weddng Stuff

I have been playing about with ideas for wedding invites and this is what i have come up with so far.

The colour and theme is yellow and daffodils. The envolope inside i thought looked quite good although took ages to make!
