McCalls 7608 Jumpsuit

I was excited to test out a romper for the first time and originally really loved this pattern because of the different top styles. There were also some really lovely versions made on Pattern Review. Once I started and got onto my second muslin I realised I had turned this pattern into a bit of a hack! However, I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome!

Charity Sewing – Doggy Bag Key Ring Holders

During the week I created my first charity project for the year, creating 10 x Doggy Bag Key Ring Holders and added the poo bags to give to the Animal Welfare League Queensland.

I wanted this to be something other people could get involved with but since I made the pattern up myself I created this a PDF download. If you’re interested, you can find it on my Etsy shop – Honey Love Handmade. The pattern also comes with the Lipstick Holder design and instructions.
