Welcome to my DIY Project Gallery.

Alot of the items on here I have used the original item ie: leggings, highchair cover etc. as a pattern and have hopefully stated this in it's description.

Other things are a copycat idea from Pinterest or elsewhere and I would be happy to share this information for the original picture or pattern with anyone who asks. (Refer to my contact page)

I haven't made a post for all of the items I have made over the years so thought I would include this page to provide ideas. I no longer try to sell any of my sewing as I just don't have time. I provided a link below to Etsy Canada if you want to try to find anything similar. I have also provided a link to Craftsy if you want some inspiraton, free patterns or tutorials. 

Thanks for stoping by. Stay posted for new projects. I hope you are inspired.
