My Sorbetto Top

Posted in Miscellaneous, Sewing with tags , , , , , , , on September 26, 2012 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I came across a post at which had a free sorbetto top pattern by collette.

I have made two unfinished tops and I am starting another, here are some fuzzy pics (sorry).


I haven’t put binding on any of these yet


The pleat is a little wonky here.


Damn fuzziness! I like this one as it look simple. I may use orange binding and buttons down the pleat.

Here’s a layout for my latest sorbetto.


And fabric


So do go visit for more lovely patterns.


Blue Hooded Cardigan

Hi All,

I completed another baby cardigan a week ago and put some cute buttons on
(I’m doing this on my phone so please forgive the quality).



I’m going to do some bootees to match.

Stay busy!


A Dress For Mom

Posted in Miscellaneous, Sewing with tags , , , , , , , on September 18, 2012 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I have sewn a few dresses for my mom and they turned out better than expected.

Here’s just one of three, one is a w.i.p, hey! I said wip (work in progress)

S (my mom) picked the fabric.


Back view of dress.

S was wearing a pink mohair cardigan she knitted years ago, it matched nicely… should have taken a pic of it.

Thanks for stopping by!



Skulls For My Ears!

Posted in Miscellaneous with tags , , , , , , , on September 17, 2012 by MontanaDesigns

Hi All,

I wanted to show you a quick photo of a present I received today, some lovely skull studs!

Brought from Claires’ Accessories

I have a fascination with skulls and gore (I don’t know why, but I like them) , these a just cute at the same time.

I have a bracelet similar to these, I was told they were from Tibet and made from cows teeth…. not sure if that’s true but I  was going to buy them anyway (the story just made me want them more!)

Anyway… Thanks for stopping by.

Hi All,

I have photos of the skirt I sewn for my sister, this is her modelling it 🙂

X was pleased with it when I gave it to her (although it doesn’t look so here lol)


These were shot outside our house as the lighting was better, more projects to come.

Hi All,

I have been doing a few designs involving star print fabric when I came across this website

It’s a site where you can create your own fabric as well as buy some that have been created by others.

I wondered onto the skull and anime sections which I have ideas for already.

Deadly Nightshade Hawaiian Quilt ( with bonus pillow fronts for larger bolts)  DOTD skulls black medium size  Skull Candy Box Pink

The green and purple would look nice as a scarf or a handkerchief top.

Here’s a tetris fabric and skirt made with it

    Tetris Border Print

My absolute favourite this one!

Icons of the Silver Screen

I could make some many things from this fabric, can you name all the characters here?


P.S. I’ve completed the polka dot skirt I made for my sister, will post very soon!
