Ta da! Another dress, Could I be on a roll?

Ta da!, originally uploaded by [mummalu].

Now that I have a goal, that being my market stalls at the Red Lantern Night Market over December. I am actually a little bit more motivated to create. This new dress was made using an old pillowcase. Now my biggest issue is not wanting to part with any of my creations and keeping them all for Eliza!

My other issue is do I attempt to sell online or do I just save everything I've got for the markets? I've got a feeling they are going to be busy.

Upcycled Shirt Dress

This isn't an original idea, I have seen these dresses made from men's old shirts on others blogs. I'm not sure who to credit in this case but I can tell you that I did score this pattern from Whole Grain Baby on Etsy. I popped into my fave op shop the other day and managed to get 8 shirts into my "fill a bag for $3"! I also had a chat to one of the girls at my local op shop and she is going to save me some more shirts that are not suitable for sale over the next few days. I would much rather chop some of the more stained and torn shirts, than to chop up a decent one that could be sold to someone who really needs it :)

This is not the best photo, but Eliza was doing the the full on model pose for me! She was walking back and forth with her hand on her hip, it was beautiful.

I have just been accepted to have a stall at the Red Lantern Night Market in Newcastle in December, NOW I just need to go and make some stuff!!

I didn't realise that roses really do have thorns.

You can tell I don't get flowers very often! Paul was home for the weekend and said he would like to buy me some flowers while we were at the Farmer's Market. So I thought I'd try something different and got some roses... never again! I ended up with some so many scratches and bleeds! And I have decided that I never want to be a florist, not that I ever wanted to be one anyway.

I don't own any vases but I do love my reused tomato passata jar!

Peas on a stick.

I came across this blog post by Weelicious and thought to myself "too easy, let's give it a go!". So the Pea Popsicle was a great success. It looks so cute and was so simple to make.

All you need is some popsicle (icy pole) moulds, frozen peas, water & a freezer!

1. Place frozen peas in popsicle moulds filling to the top.
2. Cover with cold water and place sticks in the molds.
3. Place in freezer for 3 hours or until frozen.
4. Serve.

We got given some of these moulds from a friend who bought them through Tupperware. I love the fact that I can give Eliza some tasty & healthy treats. We just recently finished off the plain frozen blended mango pops. I am looking forward to having a go at layering some flavours!
