Happy New Year to everyone, the moshi elves are still on semi-holiday till after New Year, when normal service will be resumed at the moshling household, until then hope you all have a marvelous New Year and we wish you all the best in 2012!!

The shop will be back to normal on 2nd January, and I have some special new things I have been working on with my trusty inspirational elves, who have been thinking very hard about what to do in this special year...

Vintage cotton reels

My new obsession is collecting vintage cotton reels. They call to me every time I find them. There is something so lovely about the sheen of old cotton that is unbelievably beautiful, and the labels are just amazing.

winding down...

I am going to be busy next week with other projects so the moshi elves are going to get a bit of a break. Saying that though, I had a moment of creativity yesterday and made some waistcoats out of some scraps of felt. I like the afghan edge, reminds me a bit of Jimi Hendrix.

moshi update..

The wind up to Christmas is starting now. I have battled with town and bought wrapping paper and gift tags and new lights for the tree. I have perused my cookery books and started to plan what I will cook, and the list writing is well underway. Amazon are on hand to deliver books and dvd's, my mum and dad's presents are posted and the other presents are ready and waiting to be wrapped.

I have to go to Colstons School next week to paint the last wall of my commission there, so the drawings have been sent off and approved and I just need to get my paints and pencils ready now.

All this has meant less time for sewing, but I have made some middie dresses and now have completed 5 shirt and tie sets which will be in the shop 5pm (British time) Monday. I will try and do some more sewing today, I have dresses in my head that are just dying to get out and fabric waiting to be cut...

Make a Moshi-mini skirt for Blythe

Print pattern actual size on A4 paper (don't click the fit in print area box) Embellish with nice pom pom edging or embroidery. Good fabrics are denim, corduroy, linen and stiff cottons. Stretchy fabrics will not work properly, it needs quite a robust weight of fabric to hold it's shape. You can use velcro or snaps to fasten.

If you want to use this pattern for personal use please feel free and enjoy, but don't use it for selling without crediting me. Many thanks.
