Peyote Cuff Embellished with Shells

I bought these shells and really wanted to have a go at encasing them in a bead bezel. It worked so well I stitched up the cuff for them. It fits perfectly with an inbuilt clasp. It still amazes me the potential that seed beads have. If you have the imagination and basic skills you are only limited by your imagination.

Kwik Sew 3079 – Toddler Shorts

I whipped up a pair of funky hand dyed toddler shorts in size 2 using Kwik Sew 3079. The only real difference between this pattern and the previous shorts I sewed using pattern 3398 is the sizing. This pattern is for toddlers sizes 1 – 4, 3398 is for 4 – 10 year olds and has pockets. You could insert elastic in to the legs to make them in to bloomers.

Pattern took 2 fat quarters and 1.5 hours to make including copying of pattern to tracing paper.
