Sydney Stitches & Craft Show

I went to the show on Thursday. As you will read on most other blogs, the Incubator was the best part. I concur.

So what did I get?

A couple of bag patterns and hardware from NicoleM. Nicole was lovely and helped me to pick the right bits for the bag that I want to make. Nothing flash btw, just a little something for the boy.
Speaking of bags for the boy, I couldn't resist a robot tote from Kristen Doran Design. I also spent a bit of time chatting with Kristen who is very nice. We are both fans of Converse.
I also stopped and introduced myself to Justine of MixTape. I subscribe.
I picked up some wool felt from Winterwood. I know the colours aren't my usual colours, but I wanted some things for doing machine embroidery buttons/patches.
I bought some Clear Grip and a 24" clear quilting ruler. I can always use a long ruler!
Some cotton laces. I bought two different ones because I wasn't sure what I needed/wanted for the skirt I was making Moo.

And for Moo a t-shirt with a print from Pippijoe.

I love the print on the shirt, but am not that crazy about the boxy shape of the shirt. I'm toying with the idea of a few modifications.

I bought a 2-day ticket, so could have gone back, but Saturday I was just too tired and today, well, I decided to trace out five different tops from Ottobre for Will. I thought it was better use of time.

the robot is brilliant! so nice to see your goodies and isn't it great you got to meet some of the ladies behind the blog / name / website. hmmm not sure what clear grip is, might have to google that one LOL.
Five otto tracings, now that is a great effort!

Love the print on the top, I bought a card for my Mum's birthday in a couple of months with the same print... gorgeous.
