Made By Me #147

I have had a lovely and relaxing weekend spent mostly in my garden with great company, time spent with friends really is great for the soul.  I feel blessed that I have met the most amazing bunch of like minded people on the internet.  It's not full of weirdos.  It's full of great, genuine people who go out of their way to make your life that little bit brighter.  Gosh I am getting all soppy aren't I?!  But my internet friends are incredibly dear to me, I just wish they didn't live so far away!

I may have made sounds only audible to dogs when I first saw this fabric on Instagram.  It is part of Cotton and Steel's Halloween collection called Spellbound but it is just too beautiful to save for Halloween.  It is called Elixir and has little potion bottles, various flowers and a few spiders lurking in the design.  I absolutely adore the colours too, it really doesn't feel obviously themed and it so beautifully done.  As you can see I am not waiting til Halloween to wear it!  I have also bought the mummy print and that's also totally adorable, I can't see that one waiting til Halloween either.  Mummies are every day wear, right?!

I am wearing some relatively flat shoes for me, I was sent a pair of FF2 by FitFlop shoes to see how I get on with them.  They are not totally flat and are incredibly light - it's like wearing your slippers!  I have worn them a couple of times so far and they are instantly comfortable and don't hurt my feet like most flats do.  They feel pretty supportive and you don't have to undo the strap to get them on and off so they are fast becoming my go to shoes when I am in a hurry. 



  1. Sarah every time I see a dress I think it's my favourite, then I see another one and fall in love with that one!

  2. I love this print, you always find the best patterns!

  3. Wow, I can't believe you've made 147 dresses! I love that fabric, and it's not so Halloween-y that you can't wear it all year round.
