I had some groovy new Velours and Ribbon arrive this week for

Farbenmix produce such fun things to add to your sewing projects. Sewing need never be boring AGAIN! Check them all out here RIBBONS, VELOURS, PATTERNS.

The VERY first farbenmix pattern I ever sewed, was a pair of PAULA pants. In left over cord scraps I had lying around. Everywhere Miss Lil  ( then 1!) wore them, people commented. They were adorable and I was hooked. And, so what else could I do, but bring them to Australia! The range continues to grow and thanks to the internet, we get the new releases as quick as our fellow sewers in Europe.

I have a little Farbenmix Give-away this week. If you would like to win a Farbenmix pack of 3 patterns, buttons, and 3 metres of assorted ribbon...tell me YOUR most fave farbernmix pattern! And WHY is it your Fave!

I'll announce a winner next Friday 30th!

Farbenmix NALA

This is currently my fave go-to pattern! This is the 3rd set of these I have made..two others for jammies,  but this is a casual outfit. You know, the pattern you can sew up in an instant, almost in your sleep? This is one of them!

 A great pattern for beginners, goes together very quickly and is majorly CUTE!
See the cute flounces on the cuffs and bottom of the 3/4 pants? Well, no gathering required! These are sewn onto the sleeves and legs at the very beginning, in the flat, then you simply sew the rest up as per usual! Easy peasy ( especially for the gather-challenged like myself!).

Pattern: Farbenmix NALA
Fabric: from CM Shop Girly Pink STELLA, Flap Happy rose knit- past CM shop shop, spots fromThe Stash.
Embroidery; huups on Eco felt.

The Crafty Mamas shop is officially back from holidays tomorrow, see you there!
