Custom made Canvas Laundry Hampers

This was an order put in by my brother and his girl-friend. They needed laundry hampers made for some existing frames they had hanging around. Was I upto designing some hampers...? oh  of course. Im always up for a challenge, I like to do things i've never done before, just to see if I can do it. I think I did pretty good considering i've never made any hamper of any sort, so I thought i'd fancy them up a little by adding some slightly contrasted hanging tabs.

So this is one of the hampers. They were fun and easy to make and I serged all the edges so it has a professional clean look and the canvas wont unravel.

I forgot to turn the pictures before posting them, but you get the jyst of what they are saposed to look like.

Life since April 2011

So since my last post in April lots has happened and I promise to blog more at least once a week. I was pregnant with my second child who was due Jan 26, 2012 of this year, instead I went into premature labour and had a healthy baby boy born Dec 17, 2011 at 6.7 lbs 21 inches. We spent a couple days in hospital and were able to come home Dec 23, 2 days before christmas. Now thats a christmas present.

So needless to say with a 2.5 year old toddler and a 7w old baby, getting to my sewing has been a little tough.
