A rose for a rose

Just a quick one to share with you all today. I wanted to liven up a little denim pinafore I bought for my daughter and thought I would try my hand at making fabric rolled roses...and I must say they were so very simple to make, and a good reason to save those little strips of fabric offcuts, not like I need an excuse though ;) And I love how there are all the little raggy bits show up too, it gives it a fun, casual feel. Oh, and of course, I had to make her a matching hairclip! Which she refused to model for me so I could take a photo. Those of you that know my little girl, know that she is strong willed and won't change her mind until she wants to, so sorry, no photos of the little one with the golden curls today.

What do you think? Have any of you out there made these little beauties before? Any tips or tricks?
Would love to hear from you all, please share what you have been up to in the crafting room lately.

Today was the day that I took the dive and finally set-up my madeit.com.au store.
It has been ages since I have meant to get my backside into gear and list some things on made it.
Please check my store out, look around and see if there is anything you would like to take-away with you!

Before and after

Hi there everyone! Well we have been blessed with another beautiful day here in Sydney. The sun was shining and the washing was drying.
Today I thought I would share with you the before and after pics of my desk. Where all Nanny Kate products are made. My lovely hubby designed and made the fabby set of shelves over my desk. Which helped me get all the 'stuff' off the floor under my desk.
As you can see by the photos, I have A LOT of stuff that goes into creating all the things I love to make.
And the photo doesn't show the cupboard full of fabric and felt that also makes up my supplies for creating.
So now I have a more workable space. A place where I can create my work and have all the bits and pieces I need within easy reach.
Thanks gorgeous hubby!

I would love to see your workspaces. Please leave me a comment and a photo of your workspace and one lucky winner will receive a Nanny Kate prize!
