I've entered a top into this Spring Top Week vote that someone has on their blog: it's here http://madebyrae.blogspot.com/ if anyone would like to vote. Mine's Top D in Group 5.

Here's a pic:

In other sewing related news, I bought some AMAZING orange bird fabric from Ikea the other day, but like mentioned previously, it's definitely not dressmaking weight. Shame as it'd make a lovely shift dress, but I'm going to have to stick with cushions. They do have some lighter weight fabrics which I think would be okay for clothing at the moment though.

I'm hot for Dritz. Mmm, Dritz. Hours spent in a mammoth JoAnn Fabrics store poring not only over all the colourful, tactile fabric but over all the Dritz implements and accessories. I have not seen any Dritz products in London. Not cool.

I've never embroidered before but I'm interested in embroidering a small design on a thick fabric - hopefully some sort of PVC or leather substitute rather than leather. I've seen the Sublime Stitching patterns but what do you do if you want to make your own design? Is it as simple as using a fabric crayon/pencil and drawing on your intended material and then embroidering through it? I have some rather thick needles but can imagine it'd be painful to continually push through a thick fabric. Any DIY videos or instructional web sites would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I wasn't sure where else to ask about this and I can't say anything on Facebook as it might give the game away (I'm making some toys for my friend's baby).

Does anyone know what you call the rattley bit inside baby's rattles and toys? Also, where I can purchase such things? Everyone seems to suggest just using the Kinder egg plastic thing and putting bells or beans inside, but it really needs to be machine washable (airtight) and 100% safe. The only ones I could find were in Australia from Etsy (called rattle noise makers or something), but I'm hoping to find something in the UK.
Just be nice to me.

And we just can't wait to make more mistakes and to fluff our breaks, and to stuff our faces with cake.
